The striker's penalty was saved by the legs of Adrian down the middle, as the former West Ham goalkeeper became an instant hero on Merseyside.

As Abraham strikes the ball, Adrian is already off his line meaning VAR should have ordered a retake.

The official FA ruling for a penalty kick states: "The defending goalkeeper must remain on the goal line, facing the kicker, between the goalposts, without touching the goalposts, crossbar or goal net, until the ball has been kicked."

Sergio Aguero's penalty was saved by Lukasz Fabianski but the Argentine was ordered to take it again after VAR spotted encroachment from outside the box.

Liverpool also had a right to feel aggrieved, after referee Stephanie Frappart gave Chelsea a penalty after Adrian allegedly brought Abraham down.

Jorginho made no mistake from the penalty spot in the second half of extra-time.

Chelsea fans were not happy when they spotted an image of Adrian off his line before the decisive penalty in the shootout was taken.
