Liverpool goalkeeper Alisson hailed his team’s performance during Sunday’s 3-1 victory over Manchester City, which takes them 8 points clear at the top of the Premier League.

Liverpool also opened up a 9 point gap over the defending champions and the Brazilian felt his team were well worth their victory.

“We had a great match against a great team. It’s never easy to play against City. We managed to be very superior to them for practically the whole match,” he told ESPN Brasil.

“This is the level of maturity we have acquired in these four years that Klopp is here. In the first two years, the club achieved good results, but in the decisive moments, didn’t have this maturity to hold results, of knowing how to suffer. And we got it last season.

“We know the right moment to accelerate, work the plays well, prepare the match well. I believe the way we prepare for games is making making a difference, for sure.

“If we continue at this rate, can keep it up to the end of the season, there are great things ahead. It’s a great advantage, but nothing guaranteed, we have to continue to do our best always.”
