After surrendering a disputed goal against West Ham, Liverpool goalkeeper Alisson made a thinly disguised jab at Premier League officials.

The Reds goalkeeper is now on international duty with Brazil, where he helped his team to a 1-0 win over Colombia on Friday.

However, Alisson was enraged five days prior to their victory after he felt he had been obstructed during the corner that resulted in West Ham’s opening goal against Liverpool.

Alisson flapped at Pablo Fornals’ in swinging corner as the ball found its way into the back of the net.

The Brazilian believed Angelo Ogbonna had blocked him, but referee Craig Pawson was unconvinced.

He now appears to have alluded to the decision made after Brazil’s victory over Colombia.

“When you can use your hands, the job it’s not so hard,” he stated on Instagram beside a photo showing him claiming a ball in the air.

Following the game between West Ham and Liverpool, Hammers striker Michail Antonio revealed that Alisson was their target.

“The whole plan was stick it right on the keeper and we’ll challenge,” he explained. “We saw they struggle with the ball coming in — all we had to do is keep it away from Virgil van Dijk.”

Liverpool went on to lose 3-2 against West Ham in the Premier League, their first loss of the season.

Alisson and Brazil, on the other hand, have yet to be defeated in World Cup qualification, as they earned their spot in Qatar with a win against Colombia.

So far, Brazil has only dropped two points in 12 qualifiers before their Monday night match against Argentina.

Since 2002, the five-time World Cup champions have not won the competition.
