Liverpool fell out of the Champions League places last season for what was the first time since 2016, but had it not been for their goalkeeper things could have been significantly worse.
The Brazilian produced arguably his best campaign in a Liverpool shirt, with a remarkable stat highlighting that he was worth more goals to his side than any other Premier League goalkeeper in 2022/23.
No Liverpool players made the cut in the side, with fans having plenty to say on Alisson‘s omission.
An “offensive” comparison…
Ramsdale over Alisson is more offensive than Mrs Brown’s Boys (hypothetically) winning a comedy award over The Office. https://t.co/fmUQUYWBzP

Ramsdale over Alisson as the best goalkeeper last season is crazy
Without Ali, we would have been in 11th

I just want to talk to the players who voted for Aaron Ramsdale over Alisson Becker… https://t.co/i64XgvtzOH

How can Ramsdale be goalkeeper of the year when De Gea got the golden glove, Nick Pope and Ederson kept the best defensive record in the Premier League & Alisson Becker exists… https://t.co/M14dOWtRoH

What’s Ramsdale doing in it?
Alisson carried Liverpool last season. https://t.co/3xdDpVuU8B

Alisson not being in the PFA TOTY over Ramsdale is a complete joke.
Without Alisson, we’d have probably struggled to have finished in the top half last season. He saved us so many times, but Ramsdale gets it as he was in a better team. Laughable really.

It’s a crime comparing Alisson to Ramsdale?? https://t.co/oZONgw9QpV

Alisson Becker is a top five goalkeeper of all time, and the most complete that the Premier League has seen. pic.twitter.com/8A0fZNfstm

Teams such as these are always subjective, but Alisson missing out after producing one of the best goalkeeping campaigns in recent years was always likely to stir debate.
It is unclear how much more the Brazilian would have had to do to earn himself a place in the side, but Liverpool fans are full of recognition for how crucial he is at Anfield.
We certainly wouldn’t swap him for Ramsdale, or any Premier League goalkeeper for that matter!
