Liverpool fans have reacted with horror after Klopp announced his starting XI for the game against Man City, with Loris Karius in goal.
It was reported earlier that new signing Virgil Van Dijk would not be playing as he was suffering from a tight hamstring.
Jurgen Klopp didn’t want to risk the centre-back and drafted in Dejan Lovren to replace him.
However, fans weren’t expecting to see Simon Mignolet dropped in favour of Loris Karius.
The team news was announced on the official Liverpool Twitter page ahead of the 4pm kick-off.
