The Brazilian goalkeeper believes the only way the Reds can become champions at the end of the season is by winning everything and not looking back.

Liverpool is currently in the first place of the English Premier League standings.

The Reds are three points ahead, with 62 points, of current champions Manchester City.

But for the team’s goalkeeper, Brazilian footballer Alisson, the only way to win the competition is by winning all of the matches.

“We have to be prepared to fight everything,” Alisson said to Goal.com

“All the adverse circumstances that come our way.”

“I believe our team is on the right track. Now we do not have much room for hesitation. If we want to be champions, we have to win everything from now on,” he added.

“I believe we had glimpses into the game. Some moments of insecurity.”

“We started ahead. [But] from the moment we started to miss some passes – some silly passes that we are not used to missing – I think the team lost a little confidence in the match. I think the opposing team also gained confidence,” he explained.

“We have confidence,” Alisson’s compatriot Fabinho added.

“We enjoyed a brilliant December, which was almost perfect, but now we have had this dip.”

“It is difficult to explain why this has happened. I believe that now teams who play against us sit very deep. We need to do things a little differently and maybe we aren’t doing this – we are unable to find the spaces,” Fabinho said.

“Often, we want to go through the middle and it is difficult against physically strong and defensive teams. We need to find solutions and in these past few games we haven’t.”
