LFC Daytrippers contributor has blasted Adrian during a recent edition of the show following the Merseyside derby at Goodison Park. 

Jurgen Klopp’s Premier League champions were held to a draw by Everton despite taking the lead twice through Sadio Mane and Mohamed Salah (as per BBC Sport).

Although the Reds were denied a late winner by a controversial VAR decision, it could be argued that their biggest concern will be the sustained by Virgil van Dijk which is going to lead to a ‘lengthy lay-off’ for the Dutchman.

First up in this Steven Gerrard quiz, how old is the former Liverpool man?

Everton equalised for a second time with just nine minutes of normal time remaining through a header from Dominic Calvert-Lewin but Khan was far from happy with the part the Liverpool goalkeeper played in the goal and made his feelings known, here is what he had to say:

“I might sound like an Adrian hater here but I’m not going to let him get away with this one as well. It was a good ball, a very high ball, it wasn’t whipped in with pace and that’s what made the header outstanding.

“But Alisson does not let that ball, get that high, without him making an effort, cleaning everyone out, either catching it or most likely punching it away.

“He’s a coward of a goalkeeper, he’s a coward of a goalkeeper and he’s rooted to his line.”

TIF Thoughts on Grizz Khan’s criticism of Adrian…

It’s clear that the podcaster was very unhappy with Adrian’s role in Everton’s second equaliser, however, in our view, his criticism of the 33-year-old feels somewhat harsh.

We feel that the Spaniard should have done better with Michael Keane’s header in the first half but to blame him for the second goal is unfair.

According to WhoScored, the player’s average performance rating in the two Premier League games he has played this season stands at an uninspiring 5.01/10 and, therefore, it may be understandable why Khan has been left frustrated and used some strong words when describing the stopper following this latest fixture.
