“Trust the process” — Alisson on Why Liverpool Can’t “Change Everything Right Away”


Speaking after Liverpool drew with Chelsea at Anfield on Saturday, Alisson explained why, in his opinion, the Reds “need to be patient” to regain their best form.

This stalemate brought the Brazilian and his defense a clean sheet for the second time in a row, but, in truth, it was one of the very few positive moments that could be obtained from another disappointing performance.

It’s a result that leaves Liverpool eighth in the Premier League table, having scored just 29 points at the halfway point of their league campaign.

Alisson believes that the nature of the teams’ struggles means it takes time before they get in shape again.

“I think it’s because of the moment we’re in that everyone wants to change everything immediately, but that’s not the case,” he told LFCTV.

“We have to build our game again, we have to be patient.

“I also want to change this immediately, but we have to be honest with ourselves, we have to trust the process, we have to keep a positive attitude, stick together and continue to work on what we are working on.

“We work very hard. Anyone can say that we are not doing what we used to do. We will wait for everything to get better.

“But today, in a really difficult game, we kept a clean sheet, and we will keep the positive things we did on the pitch and carry it over to the next match.”

Liverpool now have a week to prepare for their next match, the FA Cup fourth round match away to Brighton, where they suffered an ignominious 3-0 defeat earlier this month.

Alisson believes that time on the training field will be useful.

“It’s good for us,” he continued.

“We know that with the schedule that we have ahead, it is not so easy to find time to work.

“Sometimes you just rest and then you have to be ready for the next game, you can’t focus on improving technical things, you just try to fix the situation by telling and showing some situations.

“But now, this week, we will have the time we need to do it, and we have to use it and move it to the next game.”
