BBC pundit tears into Liverpool duo after win v Man City, claims fringe player will be laughing
BBC Sport Wales pundit Daniel Gabbidon has destroyed Liverpool goalkeepers Loris Karius and Simon Mignolet and claimed that third choice shot-stopper Danny Ward would be laughing at their performances.
Senior duo Karius and Mignolet have been rotated in the No 1 position by Jurgen Klopp in the past season and a half, and both have come in for fierce criticism for their failure to not avoid calamity.
Karius was picked to start by Klopp in the 4-3 win against Manchester City on Sunday and was beaten at his near post at close range to concede a first-half equaliser to Leroy Sane.
Ex-West Ham and West Brom defender Gabbidon believes that Ward should probably get a chance to start over the duo in coming fixtures after absolutely tear into them for their goalkeeping abilities.
“Danny Ward must be laughing watching two goalkeepers with naan bread hands constantly getting a start in front of him! Any chance,” he said on his personal Twitter account on Sunday.

Ward has been out with a back injury for a good period of the season but is still regarded as a fringe player for Liverpool, having only made one appearance in all competitions which came in the League Cup in September.
The Wales international was on the bench in last week’s win against Everton in the FA Cup.
He was on loan at Huddersfield last term and was a major part in helping them get their first ever promotion to the Premier League by winning the Championship play-offs.
Mignolet has perhaps been the No 1 choice for this campaign, but he started just one of the last four games in all competitions while Karius has been given a chance to show his abilities.
