Liverpool boss Klopp: Karius and Mignolet on same level

Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp admits a fit-again Loris Karius has given him a selection headache.

After making the bench for the past two league matches he made his competitive debut in the EFL Cup victory over Derby.

"It is not the place to announce line-ups but of course we have to think about it but in a positive way," said Klopp.

"I was never a goalkeeper - my father was so I am a little bit experienced with goalkeepers - but it is obviously a little bit different to an outfield player as no-one asks whether he can start this day and another player can start the next.

"I am not sure I will make a final decision for the next game but it doesn't mean we will go like this for the next five years.

"It is a decision at a very high level because I am really happy with both of them but there is nothing to say about this here.

"Like always when I decide for the next game then it is a decision for a player and not against another player - you will have to wait and see."
