Liverpool do not want a repeat of last season when they narrowly lost the Premier League title race to Manchester City when they clash on Sunday, goalkeeper Alisson Becker has said.

Alison Becker speaks on Man City clash

The Liverpool keeper has charged his teammates to go for the three points to extend their six-point lead on the table.

Last season the Resd lost only one league game which was a 2-1 defeat at City — to lose the title by a point

“Last season we had a great experience, an almost perfect season,” Alisson told The Guardian of  UK

“We lost one game and that one game was against City. We know how big this game is for us… for everyone.

“In the end it is just three more important points but Manchester City have been the best team in the league for the last few years so we need to give everything to win this game.

“We don’t want to feel how we felt last season. Being second by just one point… we had the loss away to Man City when we could have won or drawn. We need to give everything in every game if we want to become Premier League champions.”

Alisson missed more than two months after sustaining a calf injury on the first day of the season against Norwich City, an injury that led to Adrian stepping in to replace him in goal.
