Liverpool Fans Seem Delighted at Rumours Loris Karius is Club’s New No.1 Keeper

Loris Karius has reportedly won the battle to be Liverpool‘s new No.1 goalkeeper starting from tomorrow – and Reds fans seem absolutely over the moon about it.

The German under-21 international joined Liverpool during the summer transfer window from Mainz – Jurgen Klopp’s former club – for a fee just shy of £5 million, and he was expected to be understudy to Simon Mignolet for this season at least.

Karius looked like he could be a serious challenge to Mignolet during pre-season, but ended up breaking his hand in a friendly with Chelsea in July, and has been injured ever since.

There seems to be little doubt between this lot – but who would you start in goals?
