- Questions have again been raised over whether Liverpool need a new goalkeeper after Mignolet error

Following Simon Mignolet’s rubbish performance against Arsenal on Friday evening, Jurgen Klopp was asked whether he needs a new goalkeeper and if Loris Karius will come into the side.
Liverpool drew 3-3 with the Gunners, but Granit Xhaka’s goal was very saveable and undeniably a mistake from our Belgian no.1.
We take on Swansea on Boxing Day and it’ll be mighty interesting to see who starts between the sticks.
“We will see, we will see,” Klopp said, reported in the Echo. “I didn’t make decisions about the line-up in this moment, perhaps I didn’t think about it until now.”
We think it’s blaringly obvious that Liverpool need a new, elite goalkeeper.
Let’s look at Manchester City. Pep Guardiola didn’t rate Joe Hart, so immediately shipped him out and spent big money on Claudio Bravo. When Bravo proved he wasn’t up to scratch, he bought Ederson and hit gold. Liverpool have been toiling for Simon Mignolet since 2013 – it doesn’t make sense.
It’s not nice making this particular comparison, but if Jose Mourinho was in charge of Liverpool, the first thing he’d have done is buy an elite keeper.
Klopp’s loyalty is often admirable, but Mignolet has had enough chances. Time for a change.
