Robbie Savage reacts to Loris Karius’ performance in Liverpool’s 4-3 loss at Bournemouth
The former Leicester midfielder believes Liverpool need a new goalkeeper after their 4-3 loss to Bournemouth
Robbie Savage urged Jurgen Klopp to buy a new goalkeeper in January after Bournemouth came from behind to score a late winner and seal a 4-3 win against Liverpool.
Divock Origi started his first Premier League game of the 2016-17 season in the absence of Philippe Coutinho but the Belgium international wasted a glorious chance to make the breakthrough with the Bournemouth goal at his mercy.
However, Jurgen Klopp’s capitalised on their dominant start at the Vitality Stadium through Sadio Mane after the Senegal forward outpaced Nathan Ake before the summer signing poked his finish past Cherries goalkeeper Artur Boruc.
Origi made amends for his earlier miss with a stunning second for Liverpool after the former Lille man beat Boruc to a long ball and curled a finish into the Bournemouth net from an acute angle to put the visitors in command.
James Milner conceded a 56th-minute penalty and Bournemouth striker Calum Wilson converted from the spot to offer the Cherries hopes before Emre Can restored the away side’s two-goal cushion with a well-taken strike.
However, Bournemouth came roaring back in the final 14 minutes thanks to goals from Ryan Fraser and Steve Cook to level the Premier League clash before Nathan Ake netted an added-time winner to seal an unlikely comeback.
BT Sport pundit Savage took to Twitter to encourage Klopp to invest in a new goalkeeper this January despite Liverpool signing Karius in a £4.7m deal from Mainz in the summer.
