BT Sport pundit questions Liverpool regular following decision v Crystal Palace
By Harvey Byrne
BT Sport pundit Kevin Davies questioned goalkeeper Loris Karius’ decision after conceding Liverpool’s first goal in the Saturday evening clash with Crystal Palace.
Palace midfielder James McAtrhur equalised for the south London club after looping a header over Karius during the match at Selhurst Park.
The goal drew criticism for both defender Dejan Lovren and goalkeeper Karius and former Premier League forward Davies took to his personal Twitter account, asking why he didn’t use his hands.
Shocking from Lovren, why did Karius not put his arms up!? ????

Despite the German’s error goals from Emre Can, Lovren and Joel Matip, Roberto Firmino ensured the Reds victory in a 4-2 win over Palace.
Karius earned the backing from manager Jurgen Klopp in the week, who revealed he’s his number one, but the 23-year-old will be well aware of the presence of Simon Mignolet.
