Adrian was without a club just two weeks ago after being released by West Ham in the summer, but he was given a chance by Liverpool as their back-up goalkeeper after Simon Mignolet was sold.

And the Spaniard was immediately called into action for the Reds following an injury to Alisson on the opening day of the season against Norwich.

The Brazilian is set for a lengthy spell on the sidelines, meaning Adrian will need to quickly get up to speed with his new team-mates.

And he did himself no harm on Wednesday night in his first start for Liverpool in the Super Cup against Chelsea.

Chelsea were awarded a controversial penalty in extra-time when Adrian was adjudged to have brought down Tammy Abraham, although camera angles later shown on BT Sport appeared to suggest there was minimal contact if any.

But Adrian got the chance to redeem himself in the penalty shoot-out and he took his chance by saving Abraham’s spot-kick, sparking wild celebrations as his team-mates rushed to his side.

The goalkeeper was at the centre of the celebrations as Jordan Henderson lifted the trophy and everybody wanted to speak to Liverpool’s newest hero after the game.

However, Adrian’s heroics didn’t save him from getting a telling off from his new boss.

While Adrian was doing the rounds with reporters after the game, Klopp whistled for his attention and yelled at him to get on the team bus.

“Adrian, come on! We have a game on Saturday,” Klopp shouted.

After the team got back to the hotel, Adrian clearly had more time to treasure his first trophy with Liverpool.

He posted a picture on his Instagram story of the Super Cup trophy laying on his bed on top of a Spanish flag.

Alisson similarly took to the social media platform to show he was watching from afar, posting a picture of himself streaming the game on his laptop while wearing a protective boot on his injured left leg.

Klopp has refused to set a date on Alisson’s expected return, but the Liverpool boss did say the keeper will be out for a few weeks.

That means the Ballon D’Or nominee will almost certainly miss all of Liverpool’s fixtures before the international break.

They return to action on Saturday (3pm) to take on Southampton before hosting Arsenal at Anfield on August 24 with a trip to Burnley awaiting seven days later.
