One of the biggest talking points during Liverpool’s summer transfer window centred around goalkeeping.

Both Loris Karius and Simon Mignolet were widely deemed not good enough to help the Reds, and after the former’s fumbles in last season’s Champions League final, a change had to be made.

Manager Jurgen Klopp dipped into the transfer market to recruit world-class stopper Alisson from Roma.

Brazil’s number one has been an instant hit since arriving at Anfield, and as a result, Karius left the club to join Besiktas on loan.

Danny Ward was third choice before Alisson was bought, but he decided to call time on his Liverpool career by joining Leicester City on a permanent deal.

The 25-year-old will struggle to oust Kasper Schmeichel from the number one spot, but he caught the eye on Tuesday night as he saved three penalties in a shootout against Wolverhampton Wanderers to send Leicester into the fourth round of the EFL Cup.

The performance led some Liverpool fans to discuss why the club allowed Ward to leave, while others praised the shot-stopper.
