Former Liverpool defender turned Sky Sports pundit Jamie Carragher has dropped a major hint that Loris Karius will start in goal over Simon Mignolet against Hull on Saturday.
Karius, 23, moved to Anfield in the summer and he was largely expected to replace the Belgium international as the club’s first choice goalkeeper.
However, an injury picked up in pre-season meant that Karius missed the opening stages of the new campaign, making his debut in the midweek win over Derby in the EFL Cup.
There was some debate about who Jurgen Klopp would opt for in the league against Hull, but Carragher, who has some inside knowledge from his playing time has dropped a hint on his personal Twitter account that the German manager will opt Karius.
Big call from Jurgen Klopp with Karius after playing just one game, thought he would give it a few games before changing them.

Karius ensured a clean sheet in the 3-0 victory over the Rams in the week, but as Carragher mentions many thought that Klopp may give it a bit of time before shunning Mignolet out for the German.
However, Mignolet’s ability in goal has come under some criticism once again in the new campaign with the Reds only clean sheet of the season with the former Sunderland keeper in goal coming against Championship side Burton.
Liverpool are currently sat in sixth place and they will be keen to progress with their solid start with a win against Hull at the weekend.
