“But Karius seems to have adjusted to it well. The Premier League is that quick you need to be very decisive. It’s about decision making – which balls to come for and when to stay.

“He was voted the second best keeper in the Bundesliga behind Manuel Neuer so Karius is no rookie. He’s got very good feet.

“I hope he can go on and keep the No 1 spot for many, many years. He’s certainly got the potential to do that.”

Jurgen Klopp’s side have conceded 14 goals in 11 Premier League games this season with Simon Mignolet and Loris Karius in between the posts.

Nonetheless, this has not stopped the Reds from leading the table with 26 points as they have made a blistering start to the season by scoring 30 goals.

Karius has played six out of 11 games this term as he missed the first three games of the season due to a hand injury.
