Jamie Carragher joked that new Liverpool goalkeeper Adrian can have his house for "f*** all" after the Spaniard's penalty heroics in the UEFA Super Cup win over Chelsea .

The former West Ham stopper, 32, was making his first start for Jurgen Klopp's side since joining on a free transfer in the absence of the injured Alisson.

And after replacing the Brazilian in last week's opening-day victory over Norwich, the Spaniard endeared himself to Reds fans by saving Tammy Abraham's decisive spot-kick in Istanbul after the game ended 2-2 after extra time.

Former Liverpool defender Carragher was particularly happy with Adrian's performance and took to Twitter to show his appreciation for the goalkeeper.

Amid suggestions that the Spaniard is on the lookout for properties around Merseyside, Carragher wrote: "Adrian can have the house for f**k all!!"

Victory over Chelsea saw the Reds lift the Super Cup for the fourth time, but the defending European champions were pushed all the way and had to come from behind against their Premier League rivals.

Following their 4-0 defeat against Manchester United over the weekend, Frank Lampard's side enjoyed a strong start to the match and took the lead in the first half when Olivier Giroud slotted home after being found by Christian Pulisic.

United States international Pulisic, who joined from Borussia Dortmund, impressed on his first start for the Blues and could have doubled their lead when he had a goal disallowed for offside.

However, Liverpool were much improved in the second half and it didn't take long for Klopp's side to get on level terms as Sadio Mane scored just three minutes after the restart, benefitting from some good play from substitute Roberto Firmino.

And it was Mane who put the Reds ahead early in extra-time with a fine finish after being found by his Brazilian teammate once again.

However, the lead didn't last long as Adrian brought down Abraham in the area to allow Jorginho to level from the penalty spot.

But the Spaniard soon made amends, making the crucial save from Abraham in the shootout to ensure Liverpool left Istanbul with the trophy.
