  I'm happy it happened – Klopp glad about Alisson error The goalkeeper made his first mistake in a Reds shirt but the manager was pleased with his performance neverthelessLiverpool manager Jurgen Klopp insisted he was "really happy" Alisson had made his first mistake for the club after the goalkeeper's howler against Leicester City.

Liverpool’s summer signing Alisson could have seen his career take a very different turn when West Brom scouted him during the early stages of his time at Roma.

The Daily Express, as cited on the Yorkshire Evening Post, reports that the Baggies were keeping a watchful eye on him after he made the move to the Italian side.

The player was said to be of particular interest to ex-Scotland number one Jonathan Gould, who was working on a scouting mission for the club.

Alisson struggled to break into the Roma side when he first joined the Italian giants.

He largely played as a back-up to former Arsenal shot-stopper Wojciech Szczesny.

It was not until the latter moved on to Juventus that Alisson got his big break in Italy.

A standout season saw him earn a move to Liverpool in a deal worth a massive £67 million.

Both Chelsea and Liverpool were chasing the Brazilian throughout the summer, but for West Brom, it’s a case of what could have been.
