Liverpool goalkeeper injured by pitch invader

Oxlade-Chamberlain had a relatively quiet first half as Chelsea FC broke the deadlock courtesy of a goal from his former Arsenal team-mate Olivier Giroud after Christian Pulisic's superb assist.

Liverpool, who beat Tottenham Hotspur in June's Champions League final, have now won the trophy on four occasions while Chelsea have lost their last three appearances in the match. Klopp, certainly, was bemused by the decision to play extra-time rather than go straight to penalties at the end of 90 minutes.

Meanwhile, the Reds will hope that Adrian recovers in time for the Southampton clash, with the Spaniard out with a swollen ankle.

And their delight was boosted after Adrian came to the fore in a nervy shootout in which both Liverpool and Chelsea were nearly ideal.

After Champions League holder Liverpool and Europa League victor Chelsea finished extra time at 2-2, Adrian made the crucial save with his leg to deny Tammy Abraham and give his team a 5-4 win on penalties in a game which finished after midnight Turkish time on Thursday.

"Adrian came in a week before, Andy Lonergan trained longer with us, played half-time in one of the pre-season games". "Crazy! Yesterday it was swollen and today I spoke to him and he said it's much better, but we have to see".

The 32-year-old Spanish goalkeeper was a free agent after leaving West Ham, where he didn't play a single Premier League game last season and last appeared in an FA Cup loss to lowly AFC Wimbledon. Fabino, James Milner and Jordan Henderson slot into midfield, while Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, Sadio Mane and Mohamed Salah are the attacking threat. "He played so well tonight", Liverpool manager Jrgen Klopp said.

Liverpool do not have much of a turnaround between Wednesday's Super Cup in Istanbul and Saturday's trip to St Mary's. I like the fact we don't have fences in the stadium but it means the supporters have a lot of responsibility.

It might only be August, but Liverpool already know they must prepare themselves for a marathon.
