Graeme Souness has told Jurgen Klopp that it’s time for the Liverpool FC manager to make his mind up about the Reds’ goalkeeping situation.

The German manager raised eyebrows with his decision to start Loris Karius in goal for the Reds in their crunch clash with Manchester City in the Premier League on Sunday.

It wasn’t exactly an assured performance from Karius between the posts for the Reds, as he conceded three goals during the thrilling 4-3 victory over the Citizens.

Simon Migolet has been preferred in 19 of Liverpool FC’s 23 Premier League games so far this season but Klopp still seems to be undecided about his goalkeeping situation.

And former Liverpool FC star Souness feels that it’s time for Klopp to make a final decision about his goalkeeping situation at Anfield once and for all.

Speaking on Sky Sports on Sunday, Souness said: “You have to make your mind up now.

“If there’s not one [signing a goalkeeper in January] in the pipeline, and that’s who [Karius and Mignolet] you’re left with until the end of the season, make your mind up now.

“It’s very hard to defend Mignolet. He’s been given many opportunities to make this his place. He’s not done that.

“This guy [Karius] has come in and not covered himself in glory. I think neither of those guys would go to any of the big six teams and replace their goalkeepers.”

Liverpool FC’s win over Manchester City lifted them up into third place in the Premier League table as they look to qualify for the Champions League for the second season running under Klopp.

The Reds are next in top flight action when they travel to the Liberty Stadium to take on Swansea City on Monday night next week.
