Liverpool fans claim Adrian is better than Jordan Pickford

Liverpool fans are on cloud nine after taking 21 points from their opening seven games, and the awful form of local rivals Everton is seemingly the cherry on the cake.

While watching Manchester City grab three points can’t have been all that fun, Reds fans found something to cheer about on Saturday evening, and that was the display of England international Jordan Pickford.

The former Sunderland man has been a target for ridicule for the Anfield faithful since his baffling blunder in the Merseyside derby last season, and seemed to be at fault for Manchester City’s second goal on Saturday.

While it was a great free-kick from Riyad Mahrez that nestled into the bottom corner, it did go to the goalkeeper’s side, as opposed to over the wall, and it certainly appeared to be within reach for a top quality shot-stopper.

Pickford’s outstretched arm couldn’t keep it out though, and the champions went on to win 3-1.

Should Steven Gerrard succeed Jurgen Klopp?

Yes

Yes

No

No

Given that back-up goalkeeper Adrian has performed so well for the Reds in Alisson Becker’s absence, the red side of Merseyside immediately took to Twitter to lambast Pickford and claim that Adrian is indeed better.
