Adrian is set to play for Liverpool between the sticks in tomorrow’s Merseyside derby at Anfield and skipper Jordan Henderson says he looks ready for the challenge.
Speaking to Liverpool’s official website, Henderson said the backup stopper has been training well, as he looks set to deputise for the suspended Alisson.
He said: “Adri has done brilliantly when he’s come in during the season. He’s been in good shape in training, so hopefully he just continues that into the games where Ali will be missing. I think Adri has proven that he’s more than capable of doing a very good job there.
“It’s important to have everyone ready, everyone available when there’s injuries and to come in and be up to speed. We have got a lot of good players, a lot of players that maybe want to play a little bit more. But we’ve shown that we have got a really good squad and I’m sure we’ll need to use it from now right up until the end of the season.”
TBR’s View – Adrian will not let Liverpool down
Liverpool won every single Premier League game Adrian played and his experience should mean that he takes to the pressure cooker of the Merseyside derby with ease tomorrow night.
Even though Alisson is undisputed first choice, Adrian will understand the importance of being ready to come in at any time and he has relished the chance to help Liverpool’s title bid.
