Alisson Wins Premier League Save Of The Month Award For August

Alisson Wins Premier League Save Of The Month Award For August

Liverpool goalkeeper Allison Becker has won the Premier League save of the month for August.

The Brazilian goalie won the prize for stopping Miguel Almiron’s shot in the Reds 2-1 win over Newcastle United on August 27 at St James Park.

He put up a strong palm to prevent the rocket shot from the Paraguayan midfielder from landing in the top corner.

The 30 year old beat Alphonse Areola (West Ham), Mark Flekken (Brentford), Jose Sa (Wolves), Jordan Pickford (Everton) and Guglielmo Vicario (Tottenham Hotspur) to the award.

Tottenham Hotspur’s James Madison won the player of the month category after beating Taiwo Awoniyi (Nottingham Forest), Jarrod Bowen (West Ham), Rodri (Manchester City), Bryan Mbeumo (Brentford) and Kaoru Mitoma (Brighton) to the accolade.

Tottenham manager Ange Postecoglou was adjudged the coach of the month ahead of Jurgen Klopp (Liverpool), Mikel Arteta (Arsenal), Pep Guardiola (Manchester City) and David Moyes (West Ham).

Speaking after he was presented with the award, Alisson seemed to suggest the save was a reflex action.

“It was about my reactions,” premierleague.com quoted Alisson as saying.

“I think good positioning, trying to read the situation as well. But I think it was mainly the reactions.

“The power of the shot was really strong from Almiron, I couldn’t see the ball properly as well with so many players in front of me. I’m happy that I could react at the right time put the hand and have a try and make the save.”

Alisson has made four Premier League appearances in the 2023/24 season.

Liverpool are third on the Premier League table with 10 points after four matches.
