Lots of Liverpool fans were shocked by goalkeeper Adrian’s howler during his side’s 2-0 defeat to Chelsea on Tuesday night.
The 33-year-old moved to Anfield from West Ham United in the summer on a free transfer. He quickly became a hero in Istanbul as he saved the decisive penalty in the Super Cup final from Tammy Abraham to win the trophy. Having deputised for the injured Alisson Becker during the first few games of the season, he impressed the Kop faithful after a string of good performances in between the sticks.
Is Adrian overrated?
However, he had an evening to forget at Stamford Bridge. After his mistake earlier in the season against Southampton, he failed to parry away a shot from Willian which gave the hosts the lead in the first half which Jurgen Klopp’s side crashing out of the FA Cup.
Unsurprisingly, supporters were not too pleased with the Spaniard’s error and made their feelings clear on social media. One fan described the incident as “shocking”, while another was stunned by the howler that he made.
Adrian always has an error in him. #LFC
