Liverpool new signing Adrian help Liverpeool to beat Chealsea 5-4 on penalty shoot out to claim UEFA Super Cub trophy.

Adrian joined the Reds last week on a free transfer from West Ham,he was lucky to play after Liverpool first choice goal keepper Alisson Becker injured against Norwich city last weekend.

The Blues had earlier taken a deserved lead through Olivier Giroud’s smart finish (36) but the half-time introduction of Roberto Firmino swung the balance, and within 90 seconds he had set-up Sadio Mane to level (47).

The rest of normal time could not produce another goal, Liverpool went ahead five minutes into extra time as a Mane rocket beat Kepa Arrizabalaga, but a soft penalty given when Adrian brushed Abraham inside the box allowed Jorginho to level from the spot (101).

In the shoot-out, nine perfect penalties meant it was all-or-nothing for Abraham. His low spot-kick down the middle was kept out by Adrian’s feet, as the Spanish goalkeeper proved the hero and gave Liverpool victory.
