Alisson was sadly unable to attend his funeral due to coronavirus restrictions.

And the 28-year-old stopper was not involved in Sunday’s 2-0 win against the Blades at Bramall Lane.

Jones opened the scoring after 48 minutes before Kean Bryan’s 64th minute own-goal sealed the result.

Liverpool’s win ended a run of four consecutive league defeats.

And Jones paid tribute to Alisson by declaring his goal was in honour of the goalie’s late father.

Jones, 20, said: “It’s been a difficult time for me and the rest of the team.

“This goal is for Ally’s dad. If he sees this, this is for you bro.

“He’s a strong lad and a big part of the team. We miss him for sure.

“I’m dedicating my goal to him and his dad, and his family.

“It was a good team performance. I’m happy that we get the points and we can go again.

“Today was a good example of putting it all together.

“I am happy I scored and I’m happy for the rest of the team.”

The result sees sixth-place Liverpool move to within two points of a Champions League spot.

And they will be hoping their form continues against rivals Chelsea on Thursday, with the Blues just one point above them in fifth.
