Adrian played the remainder of the second half as the hosts went on to win 2-1, and Klopp was full of praise for the Spaniard.

"Virgil was probably man of the match with the two goals but Adrian is for me - to come in to a game like this and make two saves," Klopp said.

"Adrian comes in with cold feet and cold hands but made two really good saves

"It was very clever from Brighton but the keeper has just come on and is trying to set the wall.

"They are trying to get used to each other and the referee lets it go like this. We cannot change it but for me it's not 100% right."
