Liverpool fans have often lamented Simon Mignolet’s propensity for the odd blooper, particularly at crosses, and, as it turns out, the recently recruited German stopper Loris Karius might be similarly accident prone.

Like Manchester United yesterday, the Reds visited the DW Stadium today for a pre-season friendly against Wigan Athletic.

Karius, who arrived from 05 Mainz this summer, looked very uncomfortable in clumsily dealing with a harmless back pass from Joel Matip.

However, there were encouraging signs as Philippe Coutinho looked at his dazzling best.
