Jurgen Klopp has shown he’s not afraid to make big decisions to aid Liverpool’s title challenge.
There was one notable absentee in the Reds’ 3-0 win over Middlesbrough, Loris Karius finally being dropped after a catalogue of errors in recent weeks.
Simon Mignolet did well on his return, and it may well be that Klopp now reverts to playing the Belgian instead of his summer signing.
Sky Sports report that when asked after the game when Karius would be returning, the Anfield boss insisted there was “no time frame”.
“Loris is very young and a great talent and everything will be very good in the end,” he said.
It may be that Klopp simply took the stopper out of the side to take the pressure off him, as he has been in the headlines following his public war of words with Gary Neville.
The former Schalke man may therefore have been asked to focus on his football, and it will certainly be interesting to see who is between the sticks for the Merseyside derby against Everton on Monday.
