Shocking: Liverpool goalkeeping situation worries Jurgen Klopp!!

Sankha Ghosh / 23 September 2016

Jurgen Klopp remains undecided over which of his two Liverpool goalkeepers will start against Hull.

Simon Mignolet has played every minute in the Premier League so far, but summer signing Loris Karius impressed on his competitive debut in the 3-0 EFL Cup victory on Wednesday.

Mignolet has struggled at times throughout his Liverpool tenure but has added a consistency to his game this season.

But many Liverpool fans are still clamouring for Karius to be handed a prolonged opportunity to impress.

Speaking ahead of the test against Hull on Saturday, Klopp admitted he is unsure which keeper will start.

“Simgnolet?” the manager chuckled to himself. “I did something similar in Dortmund, ‘please be aware of the quality of Pizarazu,’ a combination of Pizarro and Lizarazu.

“It’s not a place to announce line-ups. We have to think about it in a very positive way.

“I was not a goalkeeper, my father was one, so I have a bit of experience. It’s different to changing a midfielder. Nobody asks then. I know about this.

“It’s a decision when I will do it. I’m not sure I will do it in the next game, but that doesn’t mean I won’t do it in the next five years.

“I’m really happy with both of them. Nothing to say about this here.”

Premier League newcomers Hull will travel to Anfield on Saturday for the daunting task of facing an in-form Liverpool.

The Tigers will hope to recreate the same performance that saw them defeat the Reds in their last meeting, a Michael Dawson goal was enough to seal a famous 1-0 win at the KC Stadium.

However, facing a team managed by Brendan Rodgers and spearheaded by Mario Balotelli is a much more attractive prospect in comparison to the aggressively attacking side Jurgen Klopp is currently building.

Liverpool are unbeaten in their last five which includes emphatic victories over Premier League champions Leicester City and Antonio Conte’s Chelsea. Make no mistake about it, Hull have a difficult task on their hands on Saturday afternoon.

Jurgen Klopp, Liverpool, the supporters and the never-ending ‘it could be our year’ phrase.

A hard-fought win away at Chelsea and a blockbuster unveiling of the newly refreshed Anfield under the floodlights are all well and good for the TV cameras in attendance, but can Liverpool perform on a relatively smaller stage?

Klopp is always able to get his team pumped up for the big occasion but, as we’ve seen time and time again, breaking down a stubbornly defensive unit on a Saturday afternoon has proven to be a real issue for the Reds.

If Liverpool wants to be considered serious title contenders they need to blow teams like Hull out the water, not banging on the door for 90 minutes to succumb to a dull 0-0 draw.
