Liverpool’s goalkeeper faces the wrath of Twitter

Summer signing Loris Karius started in goal for Liverpool tonight as the Reds host Manchester United in one of the biggest fixtures of the Premier League season so far.

The German was given the nod ahead of Belgian Simon Mignolet who had failed to keep a clean sheet in the league so far this campaign.

However keeper Karius can count himself fortunate that United haven’t yet broken the deadlock.

And that fortune comes as no thanks to United’s lacklustre forward play, but to a number of woeful errors and looking horribly uncomfortable on the ball – something Mignolet has been famed for during his career at Anfield.

While it is early days in his Liverpool career, the shaky show that has been the first hour of tonight’s fixture certainly don’t bode well and Liverpool fans have been clear with their opinion on their new shot stopper performance on Twitter tonight.

A fair question…

Stats don’t lie, do they?

Badly treated? …

A good analogy.

At least he isn’t alone in his woes.

I thought it was Five?

Karius clearly skipping leg day, needs to spend a day on the leg press with Xherdan Shaqiri.
