Liverpool goalkeeper Alisson says he usually "kills" the club's strikers in training - but Divock Origi is already planning his revenge.

The Brazilian star was discussing how sky-high standards at Melwood help the Reds thrive in competitive action.

And he took a playful aim at Origi and Sadio Mane as he claimed he usually comes out on top.

Alisson said: "What I think is incredible is the commitment everyone has to their goals.

"Not only the big ones, but the small ones. We love each other but we are competitive in training.

"This makes us bigger. Sadio [Mane] and Div [Origi] they help me to win a lot.

"But on training days, I want to beat them. Usually I beat them. I kill them in training!"

Origi replied: "No, don't believe that! Like Ali said, I want to beat him as well.

"In a one-on-one last night, he pushed the ball out of my feet.

"Now I'm thinking already about how I can beat him next.

"That will make us stronger to then go on the pitch and perform.

"You are always training with the best like Sadio. The runs he makes, the intelligence, the professionalism.

"Everything that he puts in the game: the love, the passion. It influences the whole team and I think that's how we can grow and grow.

"We have the same direction on where we want to go. It's special because you have so much talent that can work together.

"In all positions there's so much talent - and also that teamwork which makes us so strong in games.

"We can only keep getting better. We still have so much room for improvement."

Speaking on the same videocall with B/R Football, Mane tried to sum up the "special" environment at Liverpool.

He said: "I have seen many teams and seen many different atmospheres.

"But I always said Liverpool is just unique.

"The club is just amazing. It's like a family. Liverpool is just special.

"I even struggle to describe 'how is Liverpool?' - with the supporters, the players, the coaching staff, the club, the dressing room."

Jurgen Klopp's side are currently 25 points clear at the top of the suspended Premier League table.

And Alisson admitted he is really missing matchdays as he outlined his hopes for life beyond coronavirus lockdown.

He said: "Playing at Anfield is amazing, it's unbelievable. I miss that too much.

"We don't know how it will be in the future, but I only can say that I miss it.

"I miss giving joy to [the fans] on the matchdays, winning games, winning big things. I miss everything.

"I just hope that everyone can come out of this situation stronger."
