Liverpool Goalkeeper Adrian Has His Say On Jordan Pickford Challenge

Liverpool Goalkeeper Adrian Has His Say On Jordan Pickford Challenge

Liverpool goalkeeper Adrian has given a keeper's view of Jordan Pickford's challenge on Virgil van Dijk, that is likely to keep him out for the whole season.

Pickford's challenge on Van Dijk has been one of the biggest talking points in football this season and it's likely to impact the rest of Liverpool's title defence.

Plenty of people have had their say, including Liverpool fans who have been mocked for going over the top with their attack of Pickford.

The goalkeeper was clearly in the wrong and even the 'Keeper's Union' isn't happy with the challenger, with Liverpool goalie Adrian the latest to criticise the Everton number one.

Jurgen Klopp's side instantly showed how much poorer they are at the back without their most expensive ever signing, with Everton scoring two goals in the Merseyside derby that the Dutchman may have helped stop.

However the Premier League champions haven't been helped by the fact that Adrian has been in between the sticks for the past two league games.

Why Jordan Pickford Wasn't Sent Off For Hideous Challenge On Virgil Van Dijk

With Alisson out injured, the Reds have won one point and conceded nine goals in just 180 minutes of league football, including the 7-2 loss against Aston Villa.

Adrian, and the rest of the defence, did manage to keep a clean sheet in their first 90 minutes without the former Southampton defender on Wednesday, in a 1-0 win over Ajax in the Champions League.

Even in the win against Ajax, in which Nicola Tagliafico's unfortunate own goal was the difference, Adrian managed to be a cause for concern for the six times European champions.

The Spaniard comically tackled his own defender as Joe Gomez tried to jockey the ball back towards the keeper, for him to pick up, but Adrian got it totally wrong.

He was also very fortunate not to concede in the game and he needed Fabinho to clear the ball off the line heroically.

The former West Ham goalkeeper is expected to continue in Alisson's place this weekend, as Liverpool face Sheffield United, but he could return next weekend, meaning Adrian would be replaced before facing his old side.
