Jurgen Klopp has dismissed the idea that the goalkeeper he picks against Hull City this weekend will definitely be the number one goalkeeper for the rest of the season and beyond.
Loris Karius made his competitive debut against Derby in midweek and walked away with a clean sheet after our 3-o win. Simon Mignolet had played every game up to that point after the new signing broke his hand in a pre-season game against Chelsea.
Klopp was heavily quizzed about the situation in his pre-match press conference, but he was adamant that the decision would be for this game and this game only.
“It’s a decision when I do it, it doesn’t mean we will go like this for the next five years or something,” he said (Echo)
“It’s a decision at a very high level because I’m really happy with both of them. There’s nothing to say about this here but as always when I decide for the next game it’s a decision for one player and not against another player. You’ll have to wait and see.”
We only have two more games before (yet another!) international break – Hull this weekend then Swansea away on 1st October. Will Mignolet be given the gloves until then? Will Klopp throw Karius in on Saturday? Your guess is as good as ours.
