‘I think the difference is consistency – we have a winning mindset’: Alisson explains how Liverpool have reached a whole new level to put their last season’s title agony behind them
- Liverpool are mentally stronger after missing out on the title, says Alisson
- Manchester City won the Premier League title by just one point last season
- However, Jurgen Klopp’s men are odds-on favourites to lift the title this year
- Alisson also praised Liverpool’s unrivaled consistency and strength in depth
Alisson has revealed how hard he and his Liverpool team-mates have worked to put last season’s title agony behind them.
Jurgen Klopp’s men enjoyed a successful end to the decade after securing Champions League, UEFA Super Cup and Club World Cup crowns in emphatic fashion.
However, the Reds agonisingly missed out on winning their first-ever Premier League title after Manchester City finished top by a single point.

Impressively, Liverpool only lost once last season while collecting 97 points along the way but it still wasn’t enough.
Now, the champions of Europe are odds-on favourites to win the Premier League title this season, having established a 14-point lead, with a match in hand, having dropped just two points from a possible 63.
Their remarkable consistency is down to their winning mindset, according to Alisson, who also praised the club’s strength in depth to keep this incredible run going.

When asked by Premier League Productions about how Liverpool have managed to pick themselves up and go again, Alisson said: ‘With a lot of hard work. We are a very strong team mentally.
‘This is important to maintain this high level even across so many games.
‘Our squad is very strong both in quantity and quality. So when one comes out of the team and another comes in, the level of the team doesn’t change.
‘This is important for a team that wants to achieve great things in football and it has helped us a lot.’

Liverpool were also crowned as Club World Cup winners and UEFA Super Cup champions
He continued: ‘We’re a team that have been together for a long time and getting better each season, taking it up a level each season.
‘I think the difference from last season, which was already a victorious season, is consistency. Defensive and offensive consistency, and a consistent mentality.
‘Our team have a winning mindset. We always think about the next game, we don’t look too far ahead.
‘We focus upon what is within reach at the time and we do everything possible to make sure we leave the pitch with a win and this has contributed to the great results this season.’
