Klopp’s Big Decision

Klopp’s Big Decision

Liverpool have started the season well and have put themselves in a good position in the Premier League table with some good results in some tough fixtures but Monday night’s game against bitter  rivals Manchester United could have a major significance regarding what kind of season the Reds will have.

Reds’ boss Jurgen Klopp must be happy with how his team is playing at the moment, especially with his team’s attack making them joint top scorers in the league, but he has a big decision to make for Monday night’s crunch game regarding who will play in goal ?

Simon Mignolet has been first choice for the last three seasons but has lost his place to Karius for the last two league games.

However, the German stopper hasn’t looked convincing, especially in his last outing against Swansea City where he flapped at a couple of crosses and looked very nervy as the game progressed.

It might be a bit harsh to drop Karius after just two games but I think it is just too big a risk to play him against United.

Yes, he could play a blinder and cement his position as Liverpool’s number one keeper but if he has another poor game it could really shatter his confidence more so than being dropped will in my opinion.

Mignolet is not the greatest keeper but he is the safer option to start on Monday, hopefully Karius will prove to be an upgrade on Mignolet in time but he needs time to prove himself and personally I hope Klopp selects Mignolet on Monday.

    I suspect he’ll play Mignolett, as you say Karius has been less than inspiring and not helped by the defenders.
