Stan Collymore is pleased that Loris Karius has been named in the starting line up against Hull ahead of Simon Mignolet.
The goalkeeper has replaced team-mate Mignolet in the team and will make his Premier League debut.
Jurgen Klopp has decided to put his faith in Karius, who kept a clean sheet mid-week in his first competitive Liverpool game against Derby.

Marius, 23, moved to Anfield in the summer and he was largely expected to replace Mignolet as the club’s first choice goalkeeper until he broke his hand in pre-season.
Following his return to fitness, ex-Liverpool player Collymore has backed the decision on his personal Twitter account to name Karius and is pleased with the competition for places.
“Looking forward to seeing Karius getting a run of games now for Liverpool,” he said. “Nice to see competition in a position that the Reds haven’t had for ages.”

Mignolet has been the club’s number one since his arrival from Sunderland three years ago but has been criticised several times by fans in the past.
The Belgian shot stopper has made several high-profile error and Jurgen Klopp believes that Karius may offer a safer pair of gloves.
Liverpool have recorded three consecutive wins against Derby, Chelsea and Leicester and will hope to continue their recent impressive form.
