Liverpool goalkeeper Alisson has played down an on-field bust-up with captain Jordan Henderson.
The pair clashed towards the end of Tuesday’s 0-0 draw at Chelsea.
“Me and Henderson, we are two people who fight, who give our lives for their team,” Alisson told ESPN Brasil. “And on the field there is no way to ask ‘please’.
“So sometimes it seems that the mood is high, but it’s two people trying to fix it, do things in the best way for the team and try to help.”
Liverpool currently sit eighth in the Premier League table, but Alisson insists the season can conclude positively.
He said: “Of course it’s been difficult, it’s been a great challenge. We are human beings and we feel as much as anyone else. We get frustrated when something negative happens.
“We rejoice when we are well. But football, the difference is that we can’t spend a long time lamenting because that’s the good side of football.
“When things are going badly, two, three days after a match that the team doesn’t play well, there’s already an opportunity that can show again. So that’s our challenge this season. Each game will show our real quality and play together as a team.”
