Liverpool goalkeeper Alisson Becker believes that the team is capable of achieving something special this season, claiming that he is looking forward to the Premier League challenge and more memorable nights in the Champions League.
The Reds have not won a trophy since 2012, when they won the League Cup, but are hoping to put an end to that drought this season. They came close to winning the Champions League last season, but were unable to overcome Real Madrid in the final.
However, Alisson thinks this season will be different, with the chance of ending Liverpool’s nearly three decade wait for a league title driving the team to perform at their highest level.

Alisson told the club’s official website: “We are excited about [battling for the title].
“We are very focused on this. We are doing this for the supporters, for the manager, for us and for everyone who is inside the project.
“This team is different. I think we can do something special here. But we need to put the feet on the ground and keep working, working, working.
“The supporters are a great part of this team. They cannot go to the pitch and play but… they can do something to move us, to charge us to do something more on the pitch.”
It remains to be seen if they can stay ahead of Manchester City in the title race. They are currently second in the league standings via goal difference, but they have a game in hand that could give them a three point lead next week.
