“New goalkeeper ASAP” – Fans react to Tranmere 2-3 Liverpool & Loris Karius error

Loris Karius once again found himself in the spotlight for all the wrong reasons as Liverpool defeated Tranmere Rovers at Prenton Park.

The Reds took on their League 2 opponents on Tuesday evening, following Saturday’s 7-0 victory at Chester.

Jurgen Klopp‘s side flew into a 3-0 lead in the first-half thanks to goals from Rafa Camacho, Sheyi Ojo and Adam Lallana.

A poor second-half performance from an entirely changed XI was disappointing, however, and mistakes from Karius and Pedro Chirivella allowed Tranmere to make the scoreline respectable.

Here’s how supporters saw Liverpool’s 2-3 win on Twitter, Facebook and our forums.


It was no surprise to see the under-fire Karius dominate the reactions……

“Sticking with the Karius of the second half of the season is one thing. Sticking with the Karius of the final and of the Tranmere second half is quite another particularly when there is no fall back option.”

Red Armada on the forums.


Some were frustrated by Liverpool’s performance, but certain individuals were praised……

“Crap second half performance here.”

ILLOK on the forums.

“Jeez, that second half was hard work. Again, I saw bits and pieces from Wilson and Jones that I liked the look of. Nice bit of energy from Clyne down the right. Little else.”
