Klopp Alert: 59% of LFC fans reject plan to dump 'excellent' €18m Liverpool star.

On Monday, John Aldridge urged Jurgen Klopp to drop 'excellent' Reds 'keeper Loris Karius for the upcoming Man Utd game, but what do Reds fans think about this?

In his column for the Liverpool Echo, Aldo explained:

"Karius has looked nervy. He's conceded from corners, and his distribution has not been fantastic. Mignolet should [play] at this moment in time".

I conducted a poll asking fans if they agree with Aldo's suggestion.

* 59% of participating fans voted for Karius to retain his place.

I voted for Liverpool to stick with Karius for Manchester United.

Dropping him will (arguably) send a message that Klopp doesn't trust him in the biggest matches, and that isn't conducive to breeding confidence.

Additionally, Karius needs to be properly tested, and until that happens, it's hard to gauge whether he has the ability to permanently replace Mignolet.

That said, if Karius has a 'mare against Man Utd, what then? Should he retain his place, or should Mignolet return to the fold?
