Jurgen Klopp told reporters at his press-conference yesterday that Danny Ward will start against Leicester City in the Carabao Cup.
The boss has declared that Simon Mignolet is the Premier League stopper, Loris Karius will play in Europe and Ward in both domestic cup competitions.
Karius conceded twice in our Champions League opener, with many suggesting Ward should actually be above him in the pecking order.
Thankfully, Mo Salah scored and is an early frontrunner for the Golden Boot (you can check out the betting previews, here), to save Liverpool’s blushes.
The Welshman shone on loan at Huddersfield last season, earning them promotion to the Premier League, but will get less opportunities to impress this term for Liverpool.
“I’m good to go,” Ward told the club’s official website.
“I had a little knock in pre-season, trouble with my back, which held me back for 10 days or so. But since then I’ve been training absolutely fine, I played the game in pre-season and I’ve been working hard on the training pitch to wait and see if I get a chance.
“I’ve not played a competitive game since [the play-off final at] Wembley, so I’m excited. And I’m excited to pull on the Liverpool shirt again after such a long time.”
