BBC Sport pundit: This Liverpool FC star keeps getting better

      Comments Off on BBC Sport pundit: This Liverpool FC star keeps getting better

Garth Crooks has heaped praise on Adrian following his fine display in Liverpool FC’s 2-1 win at Chelsea FC in the Premier League on Sunday.

The goalkeeper only signed for the Reds in the summer transfer window but he has been called upon regularly in the first few games of the campaign following Alisson Becker’s calf injury.

Adrian started Sunday’s clash at Chelsea FC as Liverpool FC claimed an important victory to keep their five-point lead at the top of the Premier League table.

Goals from Trent Alexander-Arnold and Roberto Firmino secured the three points for Jurgen Klopp’s men despite N’Golo Kante pulling a goal back for the hosts in the second half.

Adrian produced a number of important saves for the Reds as he helped Liverpool FC claim their sixth win in a row in the Premier League this season.

And BBC Sport pundit Crooks was clearly impressed by what he saw from Adrian as he helped the Reds continue their solid start to the new campaign.

Writing in his column for BBC Sport, Crooks said: “The Liverpool stand in goalkeeper seems to get better every time I see him.

“The save from Tammy Abraham in the game’s early exchanges was as good if not as important as it gets. The Spanish keeper then came for a cross and plucked the ball out of the air with supreme confidence.

“It was Adrian’s first-half performance that provided Liverpool with the platform to go on and win this game.

“Chelsea, on the other hand, had enough chances to come away with a point but too many players fluffed their lines.

“When Liverpool start winning games when not playing well it’s a bad sign for the rest of the league.”

Liverpool FC will take on MK Dons in the third round of the League Cup at Anfield on Wednesday night.
