Liverpool may have not won the Premier League yesterday but the shutout in the 2-0 win against Wolves meant goalkeeper Alisson kept his 21st clean sheet of the season.
For his achievement, the Brazilian international was handed the Golden Glove award after yesterday’s match at Anfield.
Fans on Twitter were full of praise for Alisson following an excellent first season in the Premier League:

One more clean sheet in 3 weeks please

A lot was expected of the £67m signing from Roma in the summer, and it is fair to say that he has more than lived up to expectations despite the hefty price tag.
The 21 clean sheets is the second highest number in Premier League history, three behind Chelsea’s Petr Cech, and level with the likes of Manchester United’s Edwin van der Sar.
Alisson will be hoping to keep one more clean sheet this season when the Reds play in the Champions League final against Tottenham on June 1st.
