The goalkeeper has been taunted on social media following his mistake that let the Foxes back into Saturday’s Premier League match.
After Loris Karius’ double calamity in the Champions League final defeat against Real Madrid in June, another Liverpool goalkeeper has found himself red-faced following a horrible blunder.
Alisson was signed by Jurgen Klopp’s side in the summer in the hope he would provide more reliable cover in goal, with his transfer fee of £67m ($84m) – then a world record for a shot-stopper – reflecting how much the Anfield side valued him.
However, he has shown himself prone to taking risks, and though he got away with his eccentricities against Brighton last weekend, he vowed to keep them in his game.
The Brazil international, unbeaten in his previous three outings, was punished in the 63rd minute for a sloppy attempt at playing out from the back that threatened to derail what was otherwise a comfortable trip to the King Power Stadium.
The former Roma man compounded Virgil van Dijk’s errant back-pass with a casual attempt at turning away from substitute Kelechi Iheanacho, who robbed him of the ball and squared for Ghezzal to open his Premier League account.

Seriously, though. Can we get Alisson checked for concussion after the game?
