Liverpool win the Super Cup!
UEFA Champions League winners Liverpool won the Super Cup 5-4 on penalties against Chelsea after the game ended 2-2 following extra-time.
Spanish goalkeeper, Adrian, having only joined Liverpool nine days ago from West Ham, blocked Chelsea striker Tammy Abraham’s penalty kick with his legs to hand victory to Jurgen Klopp’s side in the annual clash between Champions League and Europa League winners.
“Welcome to Liverpool! It’s been a crazy week,” said Adrian who was brought into the side following an injury to first-choice Alisson Becker in the Premier League opener against Norwich City over the weekend.
“I’m really happy for the team, I’m happy to play for Liverpool and happy for the fans. It was a long game but in the end a great finish for us.”
Liverpool’s two goals were scored by Sadio Mane (48′, 95′) while Olivier Giroud (36′) and Jorginho (101′) got on the scoresheet for the Blues.
