      But where are the goals and assists? That’s the only true measure of a player.

      I actually think he will get assists over the course of a season with his quick distribution.

      Quietly without a fanfare Loris and Virgil are forming the spine of the team.

      That save, just before half time probably saved us two dropped points yesterday.

      If they had made it 1-1 just before half time there is no guarantee we would have come out the stronger in the second half.  They had held out for 40 minutes and our second was probably the result of them being forced to be more ambitious.

      Yesterday was his 15th clean sheet in his 34 appearances for us.

      missing the most important stat, shot to save ratio.
      In all the games this season Karius is around 1/3 better in that department.
      I got my stats from Squawka.

      So, since Klopp put his confidence in Karius as the number 1 back in January, his record is:

      Games played       12
      Clean sheets         7
      Goals conceded     9

      Not a half bad record considering we have played the likes of Citeh, United and Spurs in that short period.

      May have given a penalty away (which wasn't really his problem any way) but he did really well otherwise. Made a couple of vital saves to keep them at just the one goal and all the more impressive given that our defence was not exactly watertight today

      I did not see the game, was he one on one? I heard from my father he saved two great saves, early on and a free-kick.

      That first save when Saha got inside TAA was fantastic. Rushing out the 2nd time definitely caused Saha to touch it well over the end line, but of course there was the matter of barging into him as well.  :)

      I am liking Loris more and more with every match. I don't know if he is the long-term #1 for us as we go forward to win titles, but I'd say he's starting to make a pretty good case for it.

      Yep, did well, really good save to block from Benteke, bit rash for the peno, but happy enough with him right now.

      Who gives a sh*t? That doesn't show what went on beforehand does it? He more than made up for it with the two excellent saves. Maybe it was the wrong decision but it's actually good to see a keeper coming off his line and sweeping up rather than staying rooted on his line and ogling at everyone as the ball slips past like Mignolet. He's going to stop far more by coming out that he will in staying rooted.

      Correct me if I'm wrong but that he has conceded 3 goals in 8 games and there has been a couple of penalties.

      He has every right to come for that ball, Crystal Palace forward should have been given a straight red! Remember Mane? He was given a red for catching a player in the face doing the same thing. Why that is a penalty I don't know, since the forward went into Karius, not the other way around. Sh*t ref, it is why no PL refs at the World Cup. The Crystal Palace foward doing Kung Fu there and all Karius did was come out to collect the ball in the box where players can still handle it.

      No way  was that a penalty., the forward should have seen red, his studs were dazzling most of the spectators.

      Totally agree, two feet off the ground. I hope it won't change the way Karius comes out, because it is what makes him so great.

      One great save v Zaha but thought he was awfully rash for the pen. Look where the contact was and the fact it was a bouncing ball as well meant he had no business being there. Let's be honest if that was Mignolet everyone would have been all over it.

      That was a class save, if Karius continues to improve we are looking for credible back up. Don't think Mugs measures up for that job.

      F***ing hell.The post above mine was asking about the pen,i thought a vid maybe useful,as far as giving a sh*t.,maybe one of the mods can delete it then. It was a dead cert peno,we'd be screaming blue f**king murder if a keeper did that on Salah.

      the correct decision would have been to red card Saha even if awarding Palace the penalty. Two footed fly kick? Not giving Mane a red probably made it fair. My guess is he was lenient on Mane because he realised Zaha should have been sent off  when looking at HT replays.

      People who say what was Karius doing there, he was in the box and Zaha flew into Karius more than Karius into Zaha. The penalty is debatable. Mane should have gotten a penalty too, regardless of what BBC MOTD cretins said, contact in the box is a penalty even if the pain is delayed.

      PL referees are a joke and even FIFA recognized it. It's almost unheard of to not pick a referee from a participating nation. There's 110+ games in the world cup and no referees or linesman from PL got picked. Referees are now the shame of British football, they can't even get VAR right.

      Sounds like sour grapes to me. As much as Karius has every right to go for it (I certainly don’t hold it against him), it’s definitely a penalty imo. Zaha gets to the ball first and his studs are not pointed at Karius so not dangerous play for me.

      The only possible argument for it not being a penalty is that Zaha gets his shot away before any contact is made but even that is not enough for me. Agree with the guy that said if it was Salah, we would be ranting and raving about it.

      For me it was 60/40 in Zaha’s favour whereas Mane’s against City was 60/40 in Ederson’s favour. There was no malice in it from Mane but his studs were up and it was dangerous play whereas Zaha’s was not.

      not sour grapes. Two feet off the ground and foot high.
      Karius is the best goal keeper I have seen at Liverpool in recent years.
      I rate him higher than Reina and miles ahead of Mignolet, maybe better than Dudek, but Dudek won CL.

      I totally agree with you. It is not an error from Loris, he had to come out and try to claim it but it was definitely a penalty with Zaha making the first contact.

      A few weeks ago I really wanted Allison or Oblak. Not so sure now, if Loris passes his biggest test on Tuesday he’s our number 1 next season. Would still look to replace Mignolet but not necessarily now with a superstar
