Liverpool fans here in the Tavern are still not convinced with their current goalkeeping situation, as options elsewhere are weighed up by many Reds supporters.
Anfield has witnessed disappointment and heartbreak on a consistent basis so far this season, as goalkeeping errors continue to unravel any promising positions the Reds have put themselves in. Indeed, German ‘keeper Loris Karius saw the inconsistencies displayed by former No.1 Simon Mignolet work in his favour, with the 24-year-old now having staked his claim as the club’s primary shot-stopper.
And, Super Sunday saw the German deliver another promising performance in-between the sticks for the Reds, as Anfield finally looks to have found a guardian deserved of a place in-front of the Kop. However, our local residents still aren’t easily swayed by the recent impressive performances of Karius, with the attention of many supporters leaning towards recruiting Roma ‘keeper Alisson in the summer months.
Although, manager Jurgen Klopp seems to be growing fond of having his fellow countryman in-between the sticks, and Karius is certainly relishing his opportunity, as Liverpool’s Twitter account uploaded a post-match reaction from the Reds’ shot-stopper.
"That’s my job, to try to be there for the team when needed."

Following the club’s post, fans were quick to disregard the German as their permanent goalkeeper for the future, as they still believe that reinforcements are needed in the summer.
So without further ado, here’s a look at exactly the sort of reaction being given off on social media…
still think we need to sign Alisson
What you need is consistency bro

You've done well the last 2 games mate, keep it up. Although your not out of the woods yet, I can see you becoming as good as De gea with consistency and a bit of luck along the way. Onwards and upwards Loris.
