Adrian a doubt for next Liverpool game after getting injured by fan in Super Cup

Liverpool's Adrian injured after clash with fan after winning Super Cup

Jurgen Klopp has revealed that Adrian is still a doubt for Liverpool's next Premier League match against Southampton, after he was injured by a Liverpool fan that rushed onto the pitch after the Spaniard saved the penalty that won them the UEFA Super Cup against Chelsea on Wednesday.

The German manager said that the pitch invader slipped during the celebrations and left Adrian with a swollen ankle.

Klopp said "A supporter jumped over something, slipped and kicked his ankle. It is swollen but we have to see."

He went on to praise the Spaniard for his heroics against Chelsea, saying "it was a brilliant night for him, not only because of the penalty, but also because of the game."

Adrian was playing mainly as a result of first-choice goalkeeper, Alisson's injury, with the Brazilian getting injured in Liverpool's first match of the season against Norwich, pulling up with a hamstring injury after taking a goal-kick.

The injury caused to Adrian happened as the players were huddled up celebrating the victory, with the supporter slipping and colliding with around three other players apart from Adrian.

If Adrian does not manage to get fit before the match, Liverpool will have to go into the game against Southampton with 35-year-old Andy Lonergan in goal, who signed for the club last week on a short-term deal as cover, or else Caoimhin Kelleher, a young prospect from Liverpool's academy.
