Alisson Becker on Liverpool’s form: ‘We’re enjoying this time a lot’
Alisson Becker believes Liverpool’s incredible form this season has been made possible by the squad taking enjoyment in their daily work.

And according to the man between the sticks, such levels have been achieved through a combination of world-class ability throughout the ranks and each player being willing to put in the hard yards.
“We want to win the title and for winning the title, you need to win everything,” Alisson told Premier League Productions. “We are just looking for our main goal and what is behind is behind.
“We have to focus on our quality. We have an amazing group with amazing players – one goes out, the other comes in.
“Adrian, for example, when I got injured, he comes in and performed really, really good. An example of the other boys, Fab goes out and another one comes in and it’s the same. Everybody helps a lot on the pitch.
“We are enjoying this time because it’s good to be on the top. We work for this – to be on the top in a top level.
“We are enjoying it a lot. For winning you need to enjoy the game. The way we play, you need to enjoy that because if you don’t enjoy that then you cannot play all the games with our intensity. We try to do our best and be happy on the pitch.
“In Brazil we always say that you need to enjoy the game to be happy playing football because football is happiness.
“Of course you need to be serious because you are in a competition of a high level, but you need to enjoy.”
