Alisson: Liverpool focusing on themselves in title race

Alisson says Liverpool are only focusing on themselves in the Premier League title race.

The Reds have recently stormed to the top of the table, and the Brazilian goalkeeper is glad to be looking down on their rivals.

He told Liverpool's club website: "It’s good, you put pressure on the opponents, the other teams who are there fighting for first place.

"But we are only thinking about ourselves, thinking about what we can do on the pitch. So, when you get three points with a great performance you will be happy."

Alisson also suggested that thrashing of Crystal Palace 7-0 was much harder than it appeared.

He explained: "If you just see the scoresheet you see it was an easy game for Liverpool, but it wasn’t. We had to work really hard here.

"It’s always tough to play against Crystal Palace away because of the way they play. They like to put the balls in behind and we like to press them and sometimes they came out of this pressure of ours.

"But on those moments we did really well, buying some time, dropping a little bit, the defensive line dropped a little bit to buy some time for the other players to come back and help to defend. That’s why, I believe, we got the clean sheet.

"Then after, with the ball we did really, really well – great."
