Liverpool fans react to big team news ahead of Hull clash

Just as most of us were expecting, Loris Karius appears to have won his battle with Simon Mignolet for Liverpool’s No.1 jersey.

The former Germany U21 international signed for the Reds from Mainz 05 in the summer but was forced to sit out the opening stages of the 16/17 Premier League campaign after breaking his hand in pre-season – handing the under-fire Simon Mignolet an automatic starting role once again.

But Karius made his first-team debut in Liverpool’s 3-0 EFL Cup victory over Derby County earlier this week and reports now claim Jurgen Klopp will stick with him when Hull City visit Anfield on Saturday afternoon.

It is, of course, no real surprise that Klopp has made such a decision. Despite Mignolet recently showing vast improvements on his calamitous performances over the past few seasons, Karius’ arrival in the summer seemed to mark the beginning of the end of the Belgium international’s first team chances.

Karius was signed by Klopp to eventually be the club’s No.1 shot-stopper and now he’s fit and raring to go, Klopp has wasted no time in handing him the gloves.
