Liverpool's Premier League opener awaits.

With the South American restored to Klopp's outfit this weekend, Liverpool will simply become more equipped to guard against the element of chance, as Alisson provides the ultimate safety net.

In simple terms, having Alisson in goal rather than an average goalkeeper for the past four years has saved Liverpool from conceding around 16 to 17 goals in the Premier League, as the standard performer would have shipped around that amount more once presented with the same shots on target to prevent.

Alisson has been expected to ship around 115.6 goals in the Premier League based on the shots on target he's faced since his transfer from AS Roma to Anfield.

This weekend, the Reds will return to action, facing Fulham at Craven Cottage in their first game of the new campaign.

David de Gea of Manchester United has overperformed by exactly nine goals since Alisson arrived in the country and in terms of Leicester City's Kasper Schmeichel — who recently moved to Nice — he's actually performed slightly below average, underperforming by 0.6 goals in total.

Those numbers essentially mean he's saved shots to an elite standard, overperforming expectation by an impressive 16.6 goals.
