Liverpool lose Super Cup hero, Adrian to injury

| |

Super Cup hero, Adrian is a major doubt for Liverpool’s match against Southampton following an injury he sustained from a fan on Wednesday.

Adrian left London Stadium as a free agent at the end of last season and spent the summer out of work, at one point, training with a semi-professional club in his homeland of Spain.

However, near the end of the window, Adrian signed for European champions Liverpool, replacing Simon Mignolet as Alisson’s back-up.

But an injury to Alisson in the Premier League opener against Norwich City saw Adrian quickly thrust into the action at Anfield.

And on just his first start for Liverpool, the Spaniard proved their UEFA Super Cup final hero with a decisive penalty shoot-out save from Chelsea’s Tammy Abraham on Wednesday.

Adrian spent six years at West Ham, largely operating as the club’s first choice prior to Fabianski’s 2018 arrival.

The former Real Betis man was set to continue in the Liverpool goal against Southampton this weekend, with Alisson out for “the next few weeks” – as confirmed by Jurgen Klopp.

Adrian is almost certain to be in goal when Liverpool meet Arsenal on August 24 for their first top-six clash of the season and depending on how long the Brazilian is sidelined, may be in when the Reds have their Super Cup rematch against Chelsea in the Premier League on September 22.
