Liverpool goalkeeper Loris Karius' 2018 nightmare season continues after he failed to make a straight-forward save in his side's friendly match against Tranmere Rovers in England.

The Germany international's lapses of concentration in Kiev back in May cost Jurgen Klopp's side the chance of claiming their sixth European crown as Real Madrid secured a 3-1 victory.

The mistake prone German spilled a free-kick for Tranmere scored a tap in, and underlined the fact Liverpool just can not rely on him heading into the 2018/19 season.

But, while many questioned Karius' position as Liverpool's number one, Klopp backed his man ahead of the new season, but the latest instalment of his goalkeeping mishaps may force Klopp into the transfer market ahead of the new season next month.

Klopp defended Karius over the error after the game. "I would say the second one, but we don't talk about that".

'Two brilliant footballers make mistakes but we only talk about one.

"Mistakes will happen; I don't like it, he doesn't like it", said Klopp.

'You can stop it by not asking, promise?

But after Karius was introduced at the interval he was beaten twice as the hosts battled back into the game, the German goalkeeper at fault for the first of their goals. Our job is to perform and you do what you do and that is part of the deal.

"I've seen this situation 500 times at least in my life - "Bam", against the chest, (ball) going down".

Liverpool have been dragging their heels over signing a new goalkeeper, with top targets Jan Oblak and Alisson regarded as too expensive.
