That’s according to former Reds shot-stopper David James.
Top-scorers Sadio Mane and Mohamed Salah secured the win for Jurgen Klopp.
This keeps the Reds at the top of the Premier League table, two points clear of rivals Manchester City.
And the Anfield side lead the way in goals conceded, with only 20 strikes getting in their net all season.
This is thanks to keeper Alisson, who joined Liverpool last season for £67million from Roma.
The Brazilian has earned high praise consistently for his performances.
And James, who made nearly 300 appearances for the Reds, had a surprising comparison for the 26-year-old.
The Englishman’s claim comes as:
Stadium Astro host Adam Carruthers asks if the Brazilian has lived up to his price tag.
And James replied: “I was asked a few months ago who the best goalkeeper in the Premier League is.
“Allison is head and shoulders above everyone else in terms of clean sheets.
“And he reminds me of Edwin van der Sar.”
The Englishman went on to explain why he chose to compare the Red’s shot-stopper to a former rival.
“He controlled his area so well, he’d make saves but a lot of skill was not about saving”
“Liverpool fans, I didn’t mean to swear there,” James added.
“When he was at United, van der Sar would break consecutive clean sheet records.
“This wasn’t a goalkeeper making 10 saves a game and performing like David de Gea.
“He controlled his area so well, he’d make saves but a lot of skill was not about saving.”
The 48-year-old suggested this ability to control his penalty box is the reason for the Brazilian’s success.
James continued: “Allison only made one save today.
“Is he a £67m goalkeeper from his save today? Not necessarily but I think he’s build up in the bank with his distribution.
“Sometimes it goes wrong but that doesn’t make him a bad goalkeeper – it just means he has to maintain that control.
“He’s does things that aren’t shot-related better than other keepers in the Premier League.”
