He played a crucial role in Liverpool's opening goal against West Ham United by playing in Andy Robertson, who eventually found Mohamed Salah with the Egyptian completing the move by scoring his first goal of the season.
The title eluded Merseyside by a mere two points as Manuel Pellegrini's crowning moment as City manager came at their expense. I shall break it down in the form of snippets below with the aid of animations to back my points.
While Liverpool slowed down their pace considerably after building their lead, Jurgen Klopp's side looked comfortable throughout the match, with the Hammers failing to cause Alisson any problems on debut.
"And they don't come much bigger than the Premier League title, especially when you analyse Liverpool's proud history".
Alisson had very little to do - but Keita was a significant player displaying a number of fine touches, athleticism and tactical awareness.
As debuts go, Felipe Anderson's at Anfield was somewhere in the territory of Jonathan Woodgate for Real Madrid. He plays a similar style of play, and a similar position, to what he did at Leipzig.
The win over West Ham was Liverpool's 27th in the league, more than they have against any other team, while West Ham have only won once at Anfield in 46 league games.
Only Jordan Henderson and Dejan Lovren - albeit the Croatian returning crocked - required extended breaks from their exertions in Russian Federation and so Klopp has been afforded the luxury of a full pre-season with the majority of his squad. "We know there is a really positive atmosphere around us", said Jurgen Klopp after they fostered more hope.
"We've made some new signings and it was going to be a tough start". The pressure is cranked up now - Liverpool fans will want a trophy in order to secure more than just bragging rights. The manager said: "After six weeks in I don't see a difference between a new player and another player".
Marko Arnautovic has been banging them in during pre-season and caused Liverpool problems at Anfield previous year, striking the woodwork with the score still 0-0.
"We can not be anything other than "the challenger" because we didn't win anything since I don't know when - certainly since I am here".
"It's hard to play when you concede four goals".
That would mean that Klopp will be smiling more than Mourinho by next May, with the latter departing Old Trafford after another season of only moderate success.
"I think that Liverpool deserved to win".
