Liverpool host title rivals Man City on Saturday in the league and Mignolet is expected to maintain his place in goal, but was criticised by some supporters for his part in Walters’ headed goal.
Karius has endured a mixed start since he completed a move to Anfield in the summer and is currently restricted to the bench.
The German has made 11 appearances this season across all competitions, but was unable to cement his place as the number one goalkeeper after a few high profile mistakes.
The youngster is still expected to have a bright future with Liverpool in the future and may have to bide his time for another opportunity from Klopp.
