Loris Karius looked to be in good spirits as the goalkeeper drove around Merseyside ahead of Liverpool’s crunch Premier League clash with Manchester United on Sunday.

The Reds are currently preparing to take on the Red Devils at Old Trafford as they look to get back to winning ways following the disappointment of their 2-2 draw with Sunderland last time out.

Liverpool also lost 1-0 to Southampton on Wednesday night in the first leg of their EFL Cup semi-final clash at St Mary’s.

It remains to be seen whether Karius or Simon Mignolet will start in goal for the Reds at Old Trafford on Sunday afternoon.

However, the German goalkeeper looked to be in high spirits nonetheless as he enjoyed a drive before the game.

Karius posted the picture above on his personal Instagram account and wrote the caption: “Rollin’ into the weekend…✌🏼️ Big game on Sunday 😉👉🏼#MUNLIV #LK1”
