Liverpool defender Joe Gomez was caught giving goalkeeper Adrian a curious look after the Spaniard collided with him to clear the ball in the box.
Gomez was shepherding the ball into the box with Ajax’s David Neres in hot pursuit and appeared to be waiting for Adrian to rush out and pick the ball up with his hands. Instead, Adrian comes flying in and smashes the ball out of play with his feet, bumping into Gomez as he does so.
This leads to Gomez giving Adrian a look of frustration, seemingly questioning his decision to clear the ball. It looks like Gomez mouths the word “Why” but it was not picked by the mics on the broadcast.
