Alisson Becker says Liverpool will keep working hard to improve performances following Monday’s 2-1 Premier League defeat by Manchester United.

The Reds were beaten at Old Trafford by goals from Jadon Sancho and Marcus Rashford while Mohamed Salah scored a late consolation.

Jürgen Klopp’s side are winless in their opening three matches to begin the 2022-23 league campaign and face AFC Bournemouth later this week at Anfield.

“It’s really difficult to come here and speak about a defeat,” Alisson told Liverpoolfc.com post-match.

“We believe that we played in a few moments in the game better than them. But in a game you have to do everything to win and to make better your performance - we couldn’t do that.

“We all agree that we must improve our performance. We have to be more consistent, we have to come back to the clean sheets again and we have to play better with the ball, making better choices - we all agree on that. This is what we are going to chase for the next game.”

On how the squad can look to turn their results around, he said: “With our attitude changing that. Sometimes during the games we make a few mistakes that you get punished for that.

“Teams, when they play against us, they know the way we play and they try to exploit that and they try to use that against us. [It’s] something that most times works for us, [but] sometimes we get punished for that and tonight it is what happened.

“Sometimes we have to be more perfect in a game. It’s difficult to do that, but as a team being together we can do that and we can improve.

“We just have to keep working hard in our game in everything and defending with the ball.”
