Courtois leaves Lallana in awe

22 January 2015, 11:37

Cape Town - Liverpool midfielder Adam Lallana says he was left in awe when Chelsea goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois saved his shot to keep the scores level at Anfield.

The Reds and Bues played out a 1-1 draw in the Capital One Cup semi-final first leg on Tuesday.

Raheem Sterling cancelled out Eden Hazard’s penalty, and Lallana would have scored the winner after coming off the bench, were it not for the big Belgian keeper.

"I can't believe the 'keeper saved it, I was halfway on my celebration," Lallana told the club’s website. "It was a fantastic save and probably one of the reasons why he got Man of the Match. He is world-class and Chelsea are a world-class team.

"I thought we played well in the first half but gave away a pretty soft penalty. The lads showed great character to get back into it. We said at half-time to be patient and that we were going to get chances.

"We come off the pitch disappointed, but still in the game. We'll go to Stamford Bridge and we're fully confident we can go through to the final."
