Liverpool fans on Twitter are over the moon as Danny Ward could be given a chance

Most Liverpool fans would sell Loris Karius in a heartbeat. The German will always be known as the man who threw away the Champions League final and despite Jurgen Klopp’s attempts to give him a fresh start, it isn’t working. The calamity ‘keeper had another clanger yesterday against Tranmere in a friendly, and many fans would love to see Danny Ward given a chance in the first-team.

The goalkeeping situation at Anfield is a tough one.

The fans have no faith in either Simon Mignolet or Karius, and for good reason.

Some fans have been calling for Ward to be given a chance in the first-team for a long time now, and as it’s now become apparent that the club probably won’t be signing a new goalkeeper this window, the Welsh international could be given a run of games in front of the Kop this season.

Ward played the first 45 minutes yesterday in the Tranmere friendly and he looked calm and composed with the ball at his feet.

He may not have had much to do in his time on the pitch, but he looked like a goalkeeper worthy of playing for Liverpool and did make one save of note, a strong one-handed stop to deny James Norwood.

The second 45 minutes couldn’t have been more different as calamity Karius showed the fans exactly why they need a new shot-stopper with his awful blunder from a Tranmere free-kick.

You can see what the Reds’ have had to say about Ward here…

It seems obvious to everyone except for Klopp that Ward needs to come in for Karius, and quickly.
