Liverpool fans spot Adrian’s reaction to Fabinho’s goal-line clearance vs Ajax

Liverpool goalkeeper Adrian pretended to clear the ball at the same time as Fabinho made an all-important goal-line clearance in the Reds' 1-0 win over Ajax in the Champions League.

Fabinho was filling in for the injured Virgil van Dijk in Liverpool's first game after the Dutchman suffered an ACL injury in the Merseyside derby.

And the versatile Brazilian put in a good performance at the back, with his last-gasp clearance ensuring Liverpool won the game.

Just before the end of the first-half, former Southampton star Dusan Tadic looked to have found the back of the net after lobbing Adrian.

However, Fabinho had other ideas, producing an acrobatic goal-saving clearance.

Now, Reds fans have spotted Adrian replicating the clearance in time with Fabinho, with one commenting: "Adrian's reaction is funny".

"don't act like you didn't get caught in the moment and boot your coffee table", joked another.

"I do that too sometimes when playing football lol, must be a natural reaction. Klopp did the same when Jota scored his header on Saturday, motioned to head the ball", added a third.
