Liverpool will have to cut out mistakes if they want to get the better of Manchester United in the Premier League this Sunday, warns goalkeeper Alisson.
The Reds threw away a 2-0 lead before beating the 10 men of Atletico Madrid 3-2 in their Champions League Group B thriller on Tuesday night.

Mo Salah made history by becoming the first Liverpool player to score for nine games in a row when he skipped past three defenders to fire in after eight minutes, even though it looked like James Milner got a crucial touch.
Naby Keita then doubled the lead five minutes later with a bullet volley from a poor clearance.
But Antoine Griezmann grabbed a brilliant brace to level the tie before he was given a straight red for a high boot to Roberto Firmino’s face.
Salah made sure of the points with his 11th goal in nine games from the spot after a hard-fought away victory gave them a five-point lead in their European group.
And Allison, who denied the dangerous Griezmann at 2-1, says: “These are the kind of matches that a top player wants to play, a top team wants to play.
“We just need to focus a little bit more in the game because we know that we can improve.
“We need to look at what we did good, what we didn’t do good, so we can improve as well.”
Veteran Milner reckons their form and gees after such an intense match can help on their trip to Old Trafford.
He adds: “We need to keep our foot down and keep this run of form going.
“We’ve got plenty of games coming up thick and fast, so we need to keep performing and putting in the performances.”
