Gameweek 5 of the English Premier League season has treated us to some entertaining results so far. The match day kicked off with 10-man Brentford defeating Wolves at the Molineux stadium by 2 goals to nil. In the 3pm kickoffs, Arsenal got their second win of the season with a narrow victory over Burnley, Liverpool overcame a stubborn Crystal Palace side by 3 goals to nil, Manchester City could not shake off Southampton so they shared the spoils with a goalless draw, while Watford came from behind to beat Norwich 3-1 in the bottom of the table derby.
Everyone is yet to get over the Manchester United and Liverpool match which ended in a shocking 0-5 thriller for the Manchester club. Bit by bit, they were taken down by their determined opponents who took no chances in the game that had everything in it. The rivalry, the winning mentality and the frustration that goes with a loss were all seen in the game and ultimate thanks to Alisson Becker who was in good shape to stop United's attackers from causing any havoc.
It's difficult to compile a list of the top 10 players in any position. But it's a lot of fun and sparks discussion, and isn't that what football is all about? Below are my top ten best goalkeepers in the world. 1. ALISSON BECKER:
The issue of Liverpool continuing their unbeaten run this weekend against Watford with the absence of Alisson Becker and Fabinho is prone to debate as a suitable replacement for both absent players would serve to strengthen their winning consistency. Liverpool has had four wins and three draws in their last seven games played with no loss, making them the only unbeaten team in the EPL.
There are good goalkeepers in the English Premier League. The like of Ederson, Alisson and Leicester City's Kasper Schmeichel are regarded as good goalkeepers in the Premier League due to their brilliant saves in crucial matches for their respective teams. However, since Edouard Mendy joined Chelsea from Rennes last season, he has been very brilliant in terms of keeping clean sheets and point-blank saves.
Liverpool is yet to concede a goal from any of the opponents they've faced this season. The club's 28-year-old Brazilian goalkeeper Alisson Becker has kept a clean sheet in both games the reds have played so far, this includes a 3-0 win against Norwich and a 2-0 win at Anfield last weekend when they hosted Burnley.
Liverpool who were knocked out of the 2019/20 champions league competition by Atlectico Madrid, will be looking forward to taking their revenge when they meet on October 19th 2021. Atlectico Madrid are obviously the strongest opponent Liverpool are set to face in the Champions league group stages. The last time both teams met in the competition, it was an unforgettable events for Liverpool as Atlectico Madrid defeated them both home and away and also knocked them out of that season champions league campaign.

No matter how you dress up the role in the modern era, it remains the fundamental duty of a Stopper to prevent the ball from crossing the line and scoring or goal conceding. Here are the top ten Glove-men this season 2021\22. 1. Ederson (Man-City)
So far so good, the 2021/2022 English Premier League season has not failed to provide us with the best individual performances from the goalkeepers as the League's matchday 5 was loaded with actions and mind-blowing moments. Below is a list of the best performing goalkeepers in the matchday 5 games.
Claudio Ranieri's Watford side will face a powerful Liverpool side at Vicarage Road on Saturday afternoon, in what will be his first game back in the Premier League. In Xisco Munoz's final game in charge, the Hornets were defeated 1-0 by Leeds United, while Jurgen Klopp's side drew 2-2 with Manchester City.
The Brazilian duo Fabinho and Alisson are being brought back to England on a private jet from international duty, but it might not be quick enough to see them feature. The reds could be without Fabinho and Alisson for this weekend's Premier League Saturday lunchtime kick-off against Watford.
Liverpool stormed into a two-goal lead in a match that felt more like a critical knockout tie than a group stage affair, with Salah completing a magnificent dribble with a deflected drive past Jan Oblak (8) to score for the ninth consecutive game, before Naby Keita volleyed home from a half-clearance.
On Saturday, Liverpool easily defeated Crystal Palace 3-0. Three players in particular stood out at Anfield. Alisson Wow. Without the Brazilian, Liverpool would have lost this game, much alone beaten Palace 3-0. He started by putting a tip on the post, and things only improved from there.
Certainly, tonight's draw match between Liverpool and Chelsea at Anfield was full of drama after Reece James got a red card. The match started very well for Chelsea as they dealt with Liverpool’s early pressure and the game been played at six-hundred miles an hour.
Liverpool host Pep Guardiola side Manchester City in the the Matchday 7 of the Premier League. Liverpool have been in solid form this season unbeaten in all their matches so far. The Jürgen Klopp's side played out a disappointing 3-3 draw with Brentford in their last League outing but followed it with a commanding 5-1 demolition of Porto in the Champions League
This weekend, not every team will be fully prepared for the forthcoming encounter. Players that competed in the South American qualifications on Thursday are unable to compete in this Gameweek due to COVID-19 restrictions in the United Kingdom. Just over 35 hours after their international games, some of these stars were due to start their club games.
Forget all the buzz about Claudio Ranieri and his debut as Watford's new coach, Liverpool is expected to win convincingly against Watford tomorrow. Without a doubt, Claudio Ranieri is a decent coach but Watford simply does not have what it takes to stop a Mo Salah who has scored in seven consecutive matches for Liverpool or a Sadio Mane who is just one goal shy of 100 Premier League goals.
Jurgen Klopp has stated that Alisson and Fabinho will miss Liverpool's Premier League match against Watford this weekend owing to problems with coronavirus limitations. The pair have been in action for their country in South America for World Cup qualification over the last two weeks, and instead of returning to England, they will fly straight to Spain, where Liverpool will face Atletico Madrid in a Champions League group-stage match next week.
