Alisson Joins Exclusive Goalkeeper Company After Scoring

It’s quite rare to see a goalkeeper score a goal, which is kind of crazy considering how many late-game situations a shot stopper will be thrown forward as a last-ditch effort to salvage a result from a match.

For just the sixth time in Premier League history, a goalie accomplished this feat though when Liverpool’s Allisson rescued a late winner off his head against West Bromwich Albion. 

The Reds were in desperate need of a win as they try to claim a UEFA Champions League spot with just two matches remaining in the Premier League season. 

While some of the previous five goalkeeper finishes have been more impressive (you’ll see what I mean), we can’t take anything away from Alisson’s achievement, which is beyond rare to see not just in England but any league worldwide.

Let’s take a look back at all six goalkeeper goals in Premier League history.

PETER SCHMEICHEL vs. Everton (2001)

BRAD FRIEDEL vs. Charlton Athletic (2004)

PAUL ROBINSON vs. Watford (2007)
