Liverpool: Joe Gomez's reaction to being tackled by Adrian vs Ajax

Joe Gomez was not happy with Adrian...

Liverpool are in desperate need of a new back-up goalkeeper.

With Alisson Becker absent due to a shoulder injury, former West Ham shot-stopper Adrian has been starting in his place and the Spaniard has been an unmitigated disaster between the sticks.

His worst performance in a Liverpool shirt came in the 7-2 thrashing away at Aston Villa and he was also very unconvincing in last Saturday's Merseyside derby versus Everton.

But with Alisson still ruled out through injury, Adrian was once again named in Jurgen Klopp's starting XI to face Ajax in the Champions League tonight.

Liverpool fans were understandably concerned about the error-prone 'keeper's inclusion and it seems even Adrian's teammates are fed up of his on-pitch shenanigans.

Just minutes into the game against Ajax, the Spaniard came flying off his line in comical fashion and actually tackled Joe Gomez in the process.

Thankfully, the centre-back - who was being pressured by Ajax's David Neres - avoided a serious collision with his 'keeper and Adrian's rash actions did not result in a goal for the hosts.

But Gomez's reaction to the incident summed up the thoughts of the entire Liverpool fanbase towards Adrian right now, a player who is simply not good enough to play for the Reds.

The defenders are fed up and they're never going to feel secure with Adrian behind them.

Alisson's return cannot come soon enough and the Brazilian will need to maintain full fitness for the majority of the 2020/21 season if Liverpool want to win more silverware.
