Memories of the Premier League 10-15 years ago conjure up very specific visions, with the nostalgia usually centering around someone hitting the piss out of a classic Nike ball.
No 2000s soccer mixtape was complete without some random gangly defender hitting a 40-yard rocket to the top corner, Wayne Rooney burying a dipping half-volley or a center midfielder charging forward and doing unspeakable things to a one-touch shot from long range.
Liverpool midfielder Curtis Jones dedicated his goal in Sunday's Premier League win at Sheffield United to goalkeeper Alisson Becker whose father passed away last week.
José Becker, 57, drowned in a lake near his holiday home in southern Brazil last Wednesday, local police said.
He had been swimming at a dam on his property when the accident happened, Doroteo Machado Filho, a police inspector in the town of Lavras do Sul, told Reuters. No foul play was suspected.

Liverpool issued a statement asking for Alisson's privacy to be respected.
Liverpool loanee Harvey Elliott scored his fifth goal of the season for Blackburn in the first half of Wednesday's game against Watford. The strike brought Tony Mowbray's Rovers within one as the game went into halftime before Watford won 3-2.

Liverpool secured a vital 2-0 away victory in Budapest against RB Leipzig on Tuesday in the first leg of the Champions League Round of 16 clash. The Reds’ goals came courtesy of two absolutely horrendous Leipzig errors that could spell the end of the Bundesliga side’s time in the Champions League.
The two bizarre mistakes fit the theme of an unusual night. Due to fears of the UK Covid-19 strain Leipzig was forced to play its “home” leg in a country in which the club has never played.
Liverpool manager Jürgen Klopp on Monday shot down speculation that he could leave the Premier League champions amid a dismal run of form and said he was determined to turn around their flagging fortunes.
Saturday's 3-1 defeat at Leicester City left Liverpool in fourth, 13 points behind leaders Manchester City having played a game more, and led to rumors that Klopp could walk away from the club.
Fans showed their support for the 53-year-old German by unfurling a 'Jürgen Klopp YNWA (You'll Never Walk Alone)' banner outside Anfield.
After watching his club blow a lead by allowing three goals in seven minutes to lose 3-1 to Leicester City on Saturday, Liverpool coach Jürgen Klopp was asked if he was conceding the Premier League title this season.
“Yes,” he replied. “I can’t believe (it), but yes.”
Life as a goalkeeper is difficult. A keeper can have fantastic game, but if one ball gets past them, they receive all of the blame.
Stats like goals against or save percentage have been used haphazardly to evaluate goalkeepers for years, but they fail to paint the whole picture.
For instance, if a goalkeeper plays behind a good defense they will be expected to allow fewer goals. Conversely, if opposing teams keep hitting top-corner screamers, the keeper allows goals that they can do little to prevent.
