Manchester United fans have rinsed Liverpool goalkeeper Adrian for “learning from David de Gea” after his blunder against Chelsea in the FA Cup.
The Reds back-up stopper was guilty of making a treacherous error against the Blues inside the opening 15 minutes of their fifth round tie
Adrian had pulled off a wonder save from a Willian shot after a blistering run from Pedro left the hosts in a commanding position.
But just 30 seconds later the Spaniard failed to keep out an even tamer shot from Willian which happened to be straight at him.

Fabinho misplaced a pass just outside his own box which the Brazil winger belted the ball straight at Adrian, only for the Kop no. 2 to palm it into his own goal.
Following the incident, several United fans compared Adrian to De Gea on Twitter, who has become known for making wonder saves, followed by basic errors which lead to easy goals.

“Adrian is basically David de Gea,” wrote a third.

“Adrian with a belter save then that mistake has been showing he is learning from de gea,” joked a fifth.
As a sixth tweeted: “Adrian: From Alisson to De Gea in 20 seconds.”
