The Liverpool No2 saved three penalties to seal League Cup progress

Alberto Moreno hailed Liverpool’s League Cup hero Adam Bogdan after the Reds beat Carlisle United on penalties to reach the fourth round.

Danny Ings scored in successive games to give the Merseyside outfit an early lead but the League Two side levelled thanks to Derek Asamoah.

Liverpool had 47 shots on goal, 16 of which were on target, but Brendan Rodgers’s side required a penalty shootout after being left frustrated.

And Bogdan, who declared his desire to usurp Simon Mignolet before the cup tie, made three saves to seal a 3-2 win on penalties.

Liverpool defender Moreno was quick to praise the shot stopper for his heroics in the Anfield goal.

Moreno wrote on his Instagram page: “Yeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeees!!!!! ⚽️⚽️💪💪 #nextround #liverpolfc #ynwa #ilusion 😃😃Well done @bogdanadamofficial”

Bogdan moved to Liverpool from Bolton Wanderers on a free transfer in the summer window.
