HEADING into this week’s Premier League action, Mat Ryan has received some support from an unlikely source.

Ryan’s Brighton and Hove Albion take on relegation battlers Swansea in another crucial match in their bid to stay in the top flight.

And in a segment with the BBC’s Match of the Day, where she was asked to provide her predictions for various Premier League games, leading Australian actress Margot Robbie backed Ryan’s Seagulls to get the chocolates.

“I’ll say Brighton, because of the Aussie love,” Robbie told Match of the Day.

Alisson joined Liverpool in July 2018 from Roma in a then record fee for a keeper. He was instrumental in the side’s drought-breaking Premier League victory last season, and was named FIFA’s 2019 the Best Goalkeeper winner.

The death of the Brazilian veteran’s father is another blow to the gloveman, who has struggled for form in recent weeks – including making a pair of horrible errors against Manchester City in a 4-1 defeat.

A number of Brazilian clubs – for whom Alisson and brother Muriel have played – tweeted their condolences.

“It is with great sadness that we received the news of Jose Agostinho Becker’s death, the father of our ex-goalkeepers Alisson and Muriel,” Internacional said.
