Fans of Liverpool have this evening taken to social media in their droves to slate goalkeeper Loris Karius following the opening goal of their clash with Spartak Moscow.

The Reds travelled to the Russian capital in their second Champions League fixture of the campaign, having drawn 2-2 at home to Sevilla in their Group E opener.

Jurgen Klopp’s men got off to a positive start, with the attacking trident of Sadio Mane, Roberto Firmino and Mohamed Salah, supported by Philippe Coutinho, looking dangerous.


However, after a sustained spell of on-ball pressure from the home side inside Liverpool’s half, Emre Can cheaply surrendered possession with a wayward pass back towards his own box.

A couple of clearances from Dejan Lovren and Philippe Coutinho eventually led to the latter taking out Aleksandr Samedov on the edge of the Reds’ box, with Spartak midfielder Fernando stepping up to take the subsequent free-kick.

The Brazilian’s whipped strike hit the back of the net in what first looked an unstoppable effort, but replays suggested otherwise.

While the free-kick was an impressive one struck with plenty of power, the ball did not hit the corner of Loris Karius’ net, or anywhere near it.


The German shot-stopper looked leggy and slow in his efforts to get across to the strike, with Liverpool fans immediately taking to Twitter to slate the former Mainz star.
