    LIVERPOOL midfielder Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain was rated at just 3/10 for his performance against Chelsea in the Super Cup.

    And it’s no surprise it is notoriously harsh-marking newspaper L’Equipe who weren’t too impressed with him.

    It was supposed to be a celebration for the former Arsenal man as he was 25-years-old at the start of the game and 26 by full-time.

    But he won’t be too pleased to see his mark in the French newspaper – in addition to being hauled off at half-time by Reds boss Jurgen Klopp.

    Liverpool and Chelsea drew 2-2 after extra-time, with Liverpool triumphing 5-4 on a penalty shoot-out.

    James Miler was only marginally better with 4/10.

    Even world class centre-half Virgil Van Dijk only scored a five.

    ADRIAN THE HERO

    Sadio Mane and Adrian were the top-scorers with 7/10.

    For defeated opponents Chelsea, Cesar Azpilicueta, Emerson and Mateo Kovacic all rated 5/10.

    Highest scoring were N’Golo Kante and Kepa Arrizabalaga on 7/10.

    Back-up goalkeeper Adrian was the shoot-out hero as Liverpool once again tasted continental glory in Istanbul by overcoming Frank Lampard’s Chelsea in the Super Cup.

    The Turkish city will always have a special place in the hearts of Reds fans after the Champions League final in 2005, when Rafael Benitez’s side snatched victory from the jaws of defeat against AC Milan.

    Liverpool, just like that memorable night 14 years ago, emerged triumphant on spot-kicks as recently signed reserve keeper Adrian denied Tammy Abraham as Jurgen Klopp’s side won the shoot-out 5-4 having settled for 2-2 after extra time.

    It was a dream first start for the former West Ham stopper, who only arrived at Anfield last week and was thrust into the starting line-up by the Bosphorus following Alisson Becker’s calf injury.
