Chelsea also cut through the Liverpool defence too easily for Klopp's liking in a 2-2 draw after extra-time in Turkey before Adrian stole the headlines with his save from Tammy Abraham after nine successful spot-kicks in the shootout.
The 32-year-old was released by West Ham United at the end of last season but handed a Premier League lifeline last week by Liverpool boss Juergen Klopp who drafted him as back-up to Brazilian first-choice Alisson Becker.
But, yesterday morning (Singapore time), he had a Uefa Super Cup winner's medal slung around his neck after emerging as Liverpool's saviour in their 5-4 penalty shoot-out victory over Chelsea.
Liverpool FC kicked off their Premier League campaign with a 4-1 home win over Norwich City at Anfield last Friday as Jurgen Klopp's men look to establish themselves as one of the contenders for the title once again.
"I told the refereeing team after the game that if we would have played like they whistled, we would have won 6-0", Klopp said.
"He made some unbelievable saves, both goalkeepers did, so I'm really happy for him". He played an incredible game and made sensational saves.

"Welcome to Liverpool! It was a insane week, but with them it's so easy playing at the back, so I am really happy for the team, happy to get that trophy, that title", Adrian told BT Sport.
"Welcome to Liverpool!" he told BT Sport.
"I think this is how we play at Liverpool".
"It was a long game but, at the end, it was a great finish for us".
"I've got nothing but pride in the team and the performance, and confidence in what that means", added Lampard.
Sadio Mane equalised in the 49th minute in a slow-burning game that turned frantic at times in extra time when the Senegalese striker gave Liverpool the lead with a neatly side-footed strike into the top corner.
"In penalty shootouts you're always lucky but his performance over 120 minutes was incredible, making the save from the penalty was the icing on the cake", said Klopp.При любом использовании материалов сайта и дочерних проектов, гиперссылка на обязательна.
