LALLAFIRE MIDDLESBROUGH 0-3 LIVERPOOL: ADAM LALLANA'S DOUBLE AND DIVOCK ORIGI'S GOAL HELPED
There was no need for Jurgen Klopp to drop Loris Karius, he could have played and the final result would not have been in any kind of danger.
But beacuse of 72 hours of the news agenda being driven by Karius’ poor form, Klopp decided no good could have come from subjecting him to an ordeal with some angry crowd, at a venue where Liverpool historically stumble.
As it turned out, it became the easiest game for any Liverpool goalkeeper. The outfield players were dominant, totally in control and ruthless when the chances came, it made no difference who was standing between the posts at Middlesbrough.
