Ahead of West Ham United’s match against Everton, they posted a video of current Liverpool goalkeeper Adrian scoring against the Toffees in dramatic fashion.
Will Liverpool win the Premier League title this season?
With the penalty shootout in the balance, Adrian stepped up, threw off his gloves and stuck the ball in the bottom corner after sending Joel Robles the wrong way to win the game — all of that before running off to celebrate with a knee slide by the corner flag, wearing a beaming smile, as shown in the video:

Many West Ham fans loved reminiscing about the goal, but many Liverpool fans were loving the post in equal measure, due to the fact it was their ‘keeper, against their rivals.
Adrian has only played 11 games for Liverpool, as per Transfermarkt, but he already seems to be a very popular figure at the club, having stepped in for Alisson so well during the Brazilian’s absence.
Though some fans have suggested that he had become loved at Anfield before playing for their club, having imposed misery on their rivals.
A selection of Twitter reaction to the video, including posts from amused Liverpool fans, can be seen below:
That’s when he became a Liverpool legend.

I’d say as a Keeper, scoring a goal, shoot out or not is like the most amazing feeling stopping them going in to scoring yourself ha
Good man Adrian
