From Karius to Adrain: Liverpool’s crazy list of shit goalkeepers

Who will have predicted Liverpool’s season will end painfully after watching them rack up wins after wins. They were so good nobody would’ve envisaged them getting knocked out of every domestic cup and European competitions.

Liverpool are the only team this season to have succeeded in beating every Premier League side with average of two goals or more. Such a teamwas destined to dominate the league and Europe.

Strangely, that perilous journey to league and European glory was again dashed thanks to their average goalkeepers.

Liverpool’s number 2 goalkeeper did what others before him did.. Make mistakes and get the team knocked out.

OptaJoe@OptaJoe·12h4 – Since the start of the 2017-18 campaign, Liverpool’s goalkeepers have made more errors leading to goals in the Champions League than any other team’s keepers in this period (4 – Adrian x1 + Karius x3). Calamity.

Just like Loris Karius who cost Liverpool the Champions League trophy against Real Madrid back in 2018 Adrian proved he is no different from Karius.

But before that, he was the sole reason Liverpool were knocked out of the 2019-20 FA Cup after making two crucial mistakes that turned into goals.

But rather than correct those deficits before facing Atletico Madrid. The Spaniard conceded two stupid goals which sadly ended Liverpool’s Champions League journey in the round of 16.

Unlike Atletico Madrid’s shoot-stopper Jan Oblak who was pulling out world class saves at the other end of the post; Adrain faced two directs shots and each of them crept in.

Imagine it was him in At. Madrid’s sticks, Liverpool would’ve won by a margin of 10 goals to 2.

But, he is not the first error prone keeper; the likes of Brad Jones, Mike Hooper, Adam Bogdan {ah! Bogdan- the only Liverpool keeper to concede directly from free-kick against Exeter City} all messed up.

Added to the list is Danny Ward, Scott Carson, Chris Kirkland, Simon Mignolet and Loris Karius.
