Liverpool: Alisson, unbeaten in half a season, overtakes De Gea

Liverpool's goalkeeper kept his 18th clean sheet of the campaign against Chelsea and is now among the player with the most clean sheets in Premier League history.

Alisson Becker is proving that his move to Liverpool last season was a tidy bit of business for both parties (he joined from Roma for 62.5 million euros). The Brazilian keeper has defended the Reds' goal in all of the team's Premier League's games so far, conceding 20 goals and keeping a clean sheet in 18 of their 34 matches to date.

Alisson goes past De Gea and Joe Hart

With four matches left to play, Alisson has already surpassed David de Gea (Manchester United) and Joe Hart (Manchester City) for going 18 games unbeaten during the same season in the Premier League. Now he has just three keepers ahead of him in the ranking.

The Premier League's safest hands

In third place is Pepe Reina, who registered 20 clean sheets for Liverpool in 2004/5 and again in 2008/9 along with Peter Schmeichel who didn't concede in 20 of United's games in 1994/5. In second is Edwin van der Sar who posted 21 clean sheets in . Alisson could go on to equal or beat those registries in the four remaining games. But just out of reach is the all-time record holder Petr Cech, who went 24 Premier League games without being beaten for Chelsea in 2004/5. Whatever happens as the Premier League reaches its conclusion, it's still impressive that Alisson is on the podium in his first season.
