Alisson feels being on top of his game routinely made the 2019/20 season one of the most physically and emotionally draining seasons for him.

After conquering Europe, Jurgen Klopp’s men set sights on domestic lands as they shifted the focus on winning the Premier League prior to the start of the 2019/20 season.

Liverpool’s hankering to win the league was probably fueled by losing out to Manchester City on the smallest of margins a season before.

Either way, they were extremely determined. The Reds started the season in an extraordinary manner, breaking records left and right, and remained undefeated for a good 18 games.

When the 30-year-long wait was finally over, they had set new benchmarks not only in English top-flight, but for other top European leagues.

After having pushed boundaries, they are looking forward to a well-deserved rest, and Alisson Becker admits the past 12 months have been quite exhausting.

Alisson told ESPN Brasil: “This was one of the most exhausting seasons I’ve ever had. I don’t know if it was due to the pandemic, the longer season, but it was also one of the seasons I played less games because of injuries.

“We got out of the Champions League early, but I think this exhaustion comes from just giving everything we have every time.”
