Iker Casillas Tweets About Loris Karius' Performance Vs. Dortmund

Liverpool's Loris Karius

Lazar Markovic - 5: You have to feel sorry for Markovic who has been at the club since 2014 but played just 19 competitive games - the last in 2015, the Serbian had one or two chances but could not find the assist or room to shoot, killing time till his next loan spell.

No news about the extent of his injury has yet been revealed but Liverpool fans may be looking to the transfer window and Domagoj Vida or Diego Godin as a precaution should the outcome be bad. We see him as a creative No.8 playing the passes and making the runs with the ball.

However, the Bundesliga giants levelled things up through a Christian Pulisic penalty before the American global made it 2-1 in the 89th minute.

'But for that to happen we need a strong squad around him and Loris is an outstanding goalkeeper.

Virgil van Dijk gave Liverpool the lead with a towering header 25 minutes in before Pulisic's introduction at half-time sparked a comeback from Lucian Favre's side.

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp has backed the former Mainz stopper to learn from his mistakes, though the Reds have since signed Alisson in a world-record deal for a keeper. "He's a fantastic skilled boy, and it's not a surprise to see". He alone can not do it all.

The statement is a powerful one and illustrates that, despite what many people seem to naively think, footballers are not immune to self-doubt, insecurity and pain purely due to their enormous wealth. "But, football-wise, he is in a very good way because he's a naturally skilled player".

The poor guy clearly wants people to back off and he has every right to get that off his chest.

On Liverpool's performance, Klopp added: "We have said a few times, it is a results game".

Both teams swapped out several players to begin the second half which brought the German side to life. The midfielder played 45 minutes here, displaying some nice touches in attacking areas, and is targeting a place against West Ham on the opening day. Dortmund had exactly the same problems.

And Pulisic played a huge part in the German side's winning goals, scoring the second before providing an assist for Dortmund's third. We have to learn off it and go again.
