Liverpool feel responsibility, not pressure, insists Alisson

Alisson has insisted that he and his Liverpool teammates are not feeling the pressure of the title race as the season edges towards its fascinating finale.

It has been one of the tightest and most intriguing title races in years, with Liverpool and Manchester City slogging it out in an epic battle for the Premier League crown.

While Man City have plenty of title winning experience within their ranks, Liverpool, by contrast, have very few winners medals among their squad.

City regained the lead at the top of the table with a tense 1-0 win over Spurs on Saturday afternoon, while Jurgen Klopp’s men take on relegation battlers Cardiff in South Wales today as the title race continues at a relentless pace.

Asked by Sky Sports if the Reds are starting to feel the pressure, £67 million goalkeeper Alisson insisted that they are are only feeling ‘responsibility’.

“It isn’t pressure,” said the Brazilian.

“It’s a feeling of knowing that you have the possibility of winning, a feeling of responsibility.

“We play at a gigantic club in Liverpool, with passionate supporters who care deeply about the Premier League first and foremost, and the Champions League.

“So we feel the responsibility yes, but we take it on and try to play as well as we can out on the field.”
