Curtis Jones struck early on in the second-half to give Liverpool a deserved lead over Sheffield United at Bramall Lane on Sunday night.
The midfielder was cool and calculated with his finish – waiting for the right moment to strike after a last-ditch cross into the box by fellow Scouser Trent Alexander-Arnold.
Speaking after the game, Jones took a moment to explain how he’s dedicating his goal to Alisson’s dad and family, saying: “May he rest in peace, and if Ali sees this, this is for you, bro.”
