I hope karius gets another chance between now and the end of the season. With no cup games left we may not see him again this season.
I said last night at halftime that Mignolet wasn't the only one to blame, felt the wall could have done a slightly better job as well.
I'm more frustrated with the referee, was a soft free kick to give in the first place for me.
Being ready for the whistle is the keepers responsibility.
Actually noticing that the whistle is blown and the free kick has been taken...is the keepers responsibility.
Whatever the responsibility of others...those things are indisputable.
He made a complete arse of it...it doesn't mean he should be dropped or sold on the back of it.
And he deserves credit for keeping his head up and saving the penalty.
But he made a massive error and no amount of deflecting changes that.
You've said people can't speculate as to whether Luiz would take the shot if Mignolet was looking but are doing exactly the same by saying that he woudn't have saved it so it doesn't matter.
The only thing we can say is that Mignolet wasn't looking and Luiz hit the ball into an empty goal.
People saying hes better than Karius....
We need new keepers
I blame Luiz he should not be allowed to take the free until migs is fully awake.
...well Migs said he didn't hear the whistle and the free kick was hit early.
Looking at the replay too on the old YouTiube, doesn't look like he was ready either, he was still shouting at players and not even looking at Luiz at the run up to the ball.
But Lallana, Henderson and Firmino were stood in the wall all watching Luiz run up and strike. Coutinho peels off the wall too.
