Watch: Gary Neville questions Loris Karius’ technique for Leroy Sane goal


Ex-Manchester United defender Gary Neville has spotted a flaw in the technique of Liverpool goalkeeper Loris Karius during their match with Manchester City.

Karius was beaten at his near post as Leroy Sane drew the away side level at Anfield, but the goalkeeper appeared to go for the ball with a clenched fist rather than an open hand.

The German was picked ahead of Simon Mignolet for the vital game, despite expectations that the Belgian would return after Karius appeared in the FA Cup last week.

And Jurgen Klopp’s side also went into the game without £75 million signing Virgil Van Dijk due to a tight hamstring.

The goalkeeping error undid some excellent work from Liverpool which saw them take the lead through Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain just nine minutes in.

However goals from Roberto Firmino, Sadio Mane and Mohamed Salah meant the error in goalkeeping will be purely trivial come full time.
