  1. Liverpool's Adrian on 'crazy week' and Klopp turns Rocky

    Liverpool keeper Adrian, a free agent nine days ago, said his key penalty shootout save in their Uefa Super Cup win over Chelsea capped a "crazy week".

    The 32-year-old was released by West Ham in June and signed for Liverpool on 5 August, jumping up the pecking order after an injury to Alisson.

    His heroics inspired boss Jurgen Klopp to channel his inner Rocky Balboa when he shouted "Adriaaann" in a pitchside interview.

    "Like Rocky," he added. "What a story."

    Adrian saved Tammy Abraham's penalty as Liverpool won 5-4 in the shootout in Istanbul.

    "Welcome to Liverpool!" Adrian told BT Sport. "I'm really happy for the team, I'm happy to play for Liverpool and happy for the fans. It was a long game but in the end a great finish for us."

  2. Stat attack

    With the scores level at 1-1 after 90 minutes, this was the fifth time in the past seven seasons the Super Cup has gone to extra time or penalties.

    Dave Brown: Little woods cup final- 1988- Luton on top, Arsenal come back, take the lead and dominate, hit woodwork, miss open goal and penalty. 2-1 down, Luton score twice in last 5 minutes... highs, lows... and a glorious final result.

    Jack Williams: I had to stop watching Liverpool vs Man City, 2nd leg of champions league 2 seasons ago as my heart hurt. Every pundit said “if city score in first 10 mins they’ll win”. Lucky they were wrong

  4. Frappart impresses in historic appearance

    History was made in the game as France's Stephanie Frappart became the first woman to referee a major European men's game.

    The 35-year-old has officiated matches in the third division of men's football in France and refereed the Women's World Cup final in France this summer.

    Frappart, who led a team largely made up of female officials which included assistant referees Manuela Nicolosi of France and Michelle O'Neill from the Republic of Ireland, was praised on social media for her performance.

    She let the game flow, while VAR was not called upon in the game to overturn any of her decisions.

  8. Stat attack

    Chelsea have now lost three consecutive Super Cup appearances (2012, 2013 and 2019) - only Barcelona and Sevilla (four each) have been runners-up on more occasions.

  9. Two defeats, but promising signs from Chelsea

    Chelsea lost 4-0 at Manchester United on Sunday and while this was another defeat for the Blues and their new manager Frank Lampard, there were plenty of positives to be taken from Wednesday night's performance.

    Lampard fielded a young side at Old Trafford but turned to the older heads in his squad for this game. The added bit of experience and quality showed, particularly in a dominant first-half display.

    N'Golo Kante was by far the best player on the pitch in the opening 45 minutes as he pulled the strings in midfield, while Giroud showed the clinical finishing that was absent for the Blues at the weekend.

    Christian Pulisic also caught the eye on his first competitive start for Chelsea.

    The 20-year-old American provided a creative spark, while his movement and vision had more than a hint of Eden Hazard about them.

    One moment that caught the eye saw him run onto a through ball in the first half, cut inside before tucking a neat finish inside the near post. However, the goal was ruled out for offside following a VAR check.

    If Lampard is able to get the balance of youth and experience right in his first XI, Chelsea could be an exciting team to watch this season.

  11. Liverpool back on their perch

    Liverpool fan account Empire of the Kop tweeted this last night, but I haven't embedded the tweet because its not very PG, and I don't fancy a telling off before 8am.

    Liverpool's Super Cup win means they are now officially the most successful English club, with 43 trophies compared to Man Utd's 42.

    Only Barcelona and AC Milan (5) have won the Super Cup more times than Liverpool (4).

  15. Fairytale final for Adrian

    Two weeks ago Adrian was without a club, having been released by West Ham at the end of last season.

    But, following Simon Mignolet's departure to Club Brugge, Klopp snapped up the 32-year-old shot-stopper to provide experienced cover for Alisson.

    Adrian had barely had time to get to know his new team-mates when he was called upon earlier than expected as Liverpool's first-choice goalkeeper injured his calf in the 4-1 win against Norwich in the Premier League's season-opener last Friday.

    With Alisson facing a spell on the sidelines, Adrian made his full debut against Chelsea. It was his first competitive start since January, but he showed little signs of nerves or rustiness, catching the eye in the first half when he sprung off his line to deny Mateo Kovacic from close range.

    There was little he could do about Chelsea's opener, which was a clinical finish by Giroud, although he did give away the penalty deep in extra time when he took the legs of Abraham.

    But that gave him the platform to produce his penalty shootout heroics, which will give him and the Liverpool fans confidence he can be an able deputy during Alisson's absence.
