Let’s get this straight: Loris Karius kept a clean-sheet last night – the first Liverpool have racked up in the Premier League this term.
But fans stormed the internet to abuse the young German, who’s now conceded just two goals in four games. Yes, he flapped at a few crosses – but let’s have a look at the man in United’s net last night – David de Gea.
When he arrived in England, he struggled early on. Now, he’s probably the best keeper in the world – as displayed by that save from Coutinho last night.
We need to get behind Karius, as the fans criticising him most are the same ones who were desperate for him to come in and replace Simon Mignolet in the first place…
This kind of reaction isn’t helpful:

LFC fans shouldn’t be concerned about Karius’ ability, its obvious. but the concern lies with Achterberg and how he changes goalkeepers.

Always the case with continental goalkeepers and I’m sure Karius will settle, but tonight he was awful, everything he attempted was terrible

Karius a worry for me. Slows the game down something terrible but distribution better than mignolet. Need a top keeper I’m afraid

Karius is shite. Whys he so nervous? You literally have the worst keeper in the league as competition.
