Photo: New Liverpool signing reflects on first clean sheet
Liverpool number one Loris Karius was feeling pleased about his first Premier League clean sheet
Loris Karius has taken to Instagram to celebrate his first Premier League clean sheet after Liverpool’s goalless draw with Manchester United.
The Germany Under-21 international retained his starting spot ahead of Simon Mignolet for the visit of Jose Mourinho’s side at Anfield on Monday night.
And Karius enjoyed a quiet evening despite a couple of nervous moments from Jurgen Klopp’s summer signing in front of the Kop.
However, the 23-year-old managed to keep Liverpool’s first clean sheet of the 2016-17 Premier League campaign so far, providing a positive in an otherwise disappointing 90 minutes.
And Karius took to his Instagram page to post the above photo as the Liverpool number one celebrated the special feat.
He wrote: “My first clean sheet in the @premierleague ✔😉 We’d have deserved more than a draw… Once again it was an amazing feeling to play in front of all you Reds! 👏🏼🔴 #LFCvMUFC #Anfield #YNWA #LFC @liverpoolfc”
The former Manchester City youth player moved to Liverpool in a £4.7m deal from Bundesliga side Mainz O5 in the summer transfer window.
Karius is competing with Belgium international Simon Mignolet for a starting spot in Jurgen Klopp’s Liverpool side this season.
