Which games Karius & Ward will play for LFC confirmed…

Liverpool are to use all three of our goalkeepers this season: Simon Mignolet, Loris Karius and Danny Ward.

(Sorry Adam Bogdan, but you’re unlikely to get a look in!)

According to Paul Joyce in the Times, Jurgen Klopp has decided to award Mignolet Premier League duties and Karius the Champions League – inferring that Ward will play in the League Cup at least.

Otherwise, there’d have been little point keeping him for the campaign and not sending him on loan…

Mignolet has not really put a foot wrong in 2017 and rightly deserves the league spot, which of course features most games.

But Karius is a promising young stopper and it would be unfair to rule him out as our future no.1, despite a shaky performance against Arsenal last time out.

Welshman Ward was born on exactly the same day as his German counterpart, but will get fewer chances to impress. Hopefully we’ll enjoy a good run in the horribly named Carabao Cup and he’ll get a chance to prove himself.
