Sky Sports broadcasted Liverpool’s recent clash against Sheffield United at Bramall Lane.
Liverpool’s first-choice goalkeeper, Alisson, missed the match against the Blades due to personal reasons.
With that being the case, Adrian played in goal for Liverpool on the night. However, according to some Liverpool fans on Twitter, the commentator kept referring to Adrian as Alisson.
90 minutes in and the commentator still thinks Alisson is playing.

This Sky Commentator likes to say Alisson instead of Adrian a lot! #SHULIV

Commentator keeps calling Adrian 'Alisson'.
Poor fella can't get any credit anywhere.
Hasn't put a foot wrong tonight. #SHULIV

If I were to take a shot for every time the commentator has mistaken Adrian for Alisson…

ANFIELD WATCH VERDICT
It is not great that the commentator kept making the same mistake. But, it is not the end of the world.
Adrian has hardly played for the Reds this season. The shot-stopper has only made six appearances, so we would have forgiven him if he was a bit rusty against the Blades.
However, Adrian was very good against Sheffield United. The Spaniard finished the match with a WhoScored player rating of 7.68.
