Alisson retained eighth quarter of his career in Liverpool with only 16 appearances, despite 65 million pounds suffering from occasional panic against Fulham on Sunday.
He returned to the starting XI after knocking down the Red Star after a hard night at Arsenal, Fabinho impressed at the heart of the midfield next to Gini Wijnaldum against Cottagers, as the £ 39million London deal continued on to Anfield.
Meanwhile, Naby Keita was restricted to just a minute of action as he recovered from injury as a substitute for manager Jurgen Kloppa who softened Guinea in the mix after starting at the start in Merseyside.
The German had to wait a year for an additional £ 52.75 million to finally join his first team, which was another few weeks?
Still, Liverpool was the cheapest, the lowest in the season that stole the show at Anfield on Sunday. And not for the first time!
Moving to Anfield at 13.5 million pounds from relegated-Stoke City after the World Cup, Xherdan Shaqiri's arrival is not a bit to keep the fans excited during the summer.
Fast four months ahead and he is probably Klopp's most exciting player. Some promise as he competes with Mohammed Salah, Roberto Firmin and Sadio Mane for space in the attack.
Such was the influence of Swiss playmates in Anfield, its form one of the key factors that Reds moved to 4-2-3-1 in the last few weeks. As some of his teammates fail to hit the top form, Shaqiri continues to shine.
Despite being unbeatable in the Premier League, something is still not right with Klopp Liverpool. Luckily, the 27-year-old has helped them pull over the line at least for the most part – his absence was sharp in Reds' defeat of the Champions League in Red Star Belgrade.
Returning to the start line against Fulham, Shaqiri made two goals from two Anfield appearances, as his sideburning volition in front of Kop helped another three points.
Now on two goals and three assists from its 11 Liverpool appearances so far this season, it is safe to say no one saw this start coming.
Despite only 469 minutes, the Swiss player has certainly felt his presence with a contribution of 93.8 minutes on the field.
However, those amounts do not include his contributions to the two Reds' three goals against Southampton or his overwhelming passage for any help from Andy Robertson for opening Roberto Firm's Red Star in Anfield.
A solid fan favorite on Kop already, he was just ever meant to be a team option. Still, he quickly becomes one of the most prominent players of the Order.
Used on any side, behind the attacker or in a deeper role in the central field, Shaqiri never fails to set impulses in races. But where does this shape come from?
With eight goals and seven assistants, he enjoyed the most prolific campaign of his career in the Premier League with Stoke last season, but could not help Potters avoid the fall.
There was some doubt about his mentality and his working pace with former teammates and experts who quickly criticized him after Stoke dropped into the championship.
Shaqiri has already had time in big clubs. It also came to Bayern München and Inter.
However, despite winning the Champions League, Bundesliga, DFB Pokal, UEFA Super Cup, and the FIFA Club World Cup during their time in Germany, the playing time was limited and never really established. Pep Guardiola has never managed to get the best out of him.

Anger was raised when Liverpool was brought to Anfield. Big fish in a small pond and a player who was certainly not fit for Klopp and his style were charges. So the suspects are silently silent.
Did Shaqiri see his move to Merseyside as the last salon in the big club? Or he has only been successful in a more prominent position after three years at Bet365.
Now, 27, enters its culmination and retains the new maturity that was lacking in her career before?
Or maybe this is just the case of Liverpool and the Stack of Perfect Condition for Shaqiri? It would not be the first time that German has the best of the players and it certainly will not be the last.
No matter the reason for his pleasantly surprising start to life in Anfieldu, he plays with a smile on the face and placing a smile on the face of his manager and fan of Reds on a weekly basis.
As Bill Shankly once said, "Liverpool was made for me and I made for Liverpool!" If his start to Anfield's life is all he needs, this seems true to Shaqiri. It's too long to continue!
