Liverpool supporters have lashed out at Adrian after Michael Keane headed home for Everton.

The former West Ham stopper failed to keep out the effort from the central defender despite getting two hands on it as he let the home side cancel out Sadio Mane’s opener.

Jurgen Klopp had been outspoken in his support of the Spaniard after he conceded seven goals against Aston Villa before the intentional break, but the fresh blunder hasn’t been missed by supporters.

One fan wrote on Twitter: “Straight at Adrian embarrassing effort of a save.”

With another adding: “Didn’t know how to stop a shot so gave a corner, then let the ball slip through his hands.”

A third continued: “Adrian mistake for a goal. Imagine my shock.”

With another follower uploading a photo of the goal with the caption: “Flappy hands.”

In what will come as boost to those who were left angry, Klopp could be able to call on the services of Alisson much sooner than previously expected.

Klopp said when asked about his progress: “Very, very positive with Ali. It looks really good. He has made big steps. I don't have a timeframe but it looks really good.”

Before adding of Naby Keita and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain: “Naby will not be ready. Apart from that, they all came back healthy from the national team. Long-term, the likes of Ox are still out.”

He said of Alisson’s injury after the Villa defeat: “It could have been worse, for sure, so we were slightly lucky.

“But he has no chance to play against Everton.

“I don't want to put a timeframe but four weeks is possible, six weeks more likely."

Before adding of Adrian: “The first goal was not good but I don’t think he had anything to do with the other goals. We didn’t help him tonight. He is a really good goalie.”
