Sunday August 27th, 2017

Ahead of Liverpool's clash with Arsenal on Sunday afternoon, Liverpool's number one keeper Simon Mignolet has been left out of the squad ahead of Loris Karius and Danny Ward on the bench.

According to Sky Sports News, the Belgium keeper is planning to hold talks with Liverpool Manager Jurgen Klopp concerning his place at the club.

Despite the fact that Klopp declared Mignolet to be Liverpool's first choice, the keeper is disappointed that he has been dropped after just four games. 

He will be seeking further clarification from Klopp in the upcoming days regarding his situation with the club.

Last season saw Karius become the preferred keeper over Mignolet but he was however dropped in September after a series of mistakes that costs the Reds.
