Chelsea fans trolled Alisson during Liverpool’s win over Atletico Madrid after the Brazilian conceded two goals in the space of 15 minutes.

The Reds had gone ahead through James Milner’s deflection from Mohamed Salah’s shot and Naby Keita’s stunning volley.

But La Liga reigning champions Atletico got themselves back into the game when Antoine Griezmann turned in Koke’s shot, with Alisson left stranded.

Griezmann then got his side back on level terms when he fired into the far corner, in a shot that Alisson arguably should have done better to save.

Atletico’s scorer was later sent off before Salah scored a penalty to secure the three points for Liverpool.

But Blues supporters took the opportunity to highlight why they believe that Edouard Mendy is better than the Reds keeper.

The match in the Spanish capital came three days after Mendy had made a series of stunning saves to help Chelsea to beat Brentford in the Premier League.

The Blues had played Atletico in the last 16 of last season’s Champions League, and some fans were quick to make a comparison between his performance in those games and Alisson’s on Tuesday.

“Alisson conceded two goals vs. Atletico Madrid in 30 minutes while Mendy conceded zero in 180 mins,” one fan tweeted.

“Edouard Mendy is the best goal keeper in the world right now, and it’s not even close,” another added.

“All I'm getting from this game is that Mendy is the best keeper in the world, at the moment,” a third fan wrote.

Liverpool fans though defended their keeper after he also made several important saves which ultimately proved crucial to their team’s win.

“Alisson bails us out like that quite often… which is why I say he’s number 1,” one Reds supporter tweeted.

“Mendy has been decent for Chelsea but I just don’t see him bail Chelsea out the way Alisson does. (Yes I know Mendy had a sick game vs Brentford.)”
