Klopp discusses Liverpool goalkeeping situation

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.”
