Alisson pulled off an audacious Cruyff turn which sent Bruno Fernandes "back to Manchester" in Liverpool's clash with United.
The goalkeeper had the ball at his feet in his 18-yard box with Fernandes pressing him, but remained cool, calm and collected to skill his way out of a potentially dangerous situation and leave the United attacker with egg on his face.
Liverpool fans lapped the moment up on Twitter with one joking: "Alisson sending Bruno Fernandes back to Manchester there." Another Red was in total awe, writing: "I want to be as cool as Alisson Becker." And even Gary Lineker added his praise.
"Alisson has been better than any @ManUtd player," the legendary England striker posted to his followers. A fan similarly said: "Alisson could play for Man Utd and realistically be their best midfielder I'm not even joking."
However, while Alisson didn't break a sweat, some of those watching on found his fire playing too much to handle. "I love you Alisson. But stop messing with my heart," wrote one with a laughing emoji.
Is there a better keeper right now than Alisson? Let us know in the comments section.
Another supporter added: "Alisson Becker is as cool as a cucumber. Kinell…" Aside from the hair-raising Cruyff turn, the Brazil international had little to do in the first half at Anfield.
Ralf Rangnick's visiting side failed to register a shot at his goal. And he instead got involved in the Liverpool attack as he featured in a 25-pass build up to their second goal.
