For a moment, it looked like Liverpool had resolved their goalkeeping problems after they signed Alisson Becker from AS Roma for a reported fee of £66.8 million in 2018.
He actually was an upgrade of Liverpool’s previous goalkeepers. He was instrumental as the club went on to win the UEFA Champions League in 2018. Liverpool failed to win the UEFA Champions League in 2017 due to goalkeeping errors by Loris Karius, their goalkeeper in that final.
Liverpool also went on to win their first Premier League title in 30 years with Alisson as their first-choice goalkeeper.
Fast forward to the 2020/21 Premier League season which Liverpool started well with three straight wins against Leeds United, Chelsea and Arsenal, and Alisson was the man in the post for the Reds.
However, against Aston Villa on Sunday, Alisson did not feature due to an injury and Liverpool’s second choice, Adrian was given the nod to be in the post and he ended up conceeding 7 goals.
His ‘poor performance’ against Aston Villa on Sunday has been criticised by Liverpool fans who want him out of the club.
They are asking for Adrian to be replaced by Loris Karius, whom they also criticised after his poor performance against Real Madrid in the 2017 UEFA Champions League final.
According to them, Karius is a better goalkeeper than Adrian because the latter makes more errors than the former.
Here’s what Liverpool fans have been saying after losing 7-2 to Aston Villa:
