Another disappointing evening for the German

The pressure of being a top flight goalkeeper is absolutely massive and it's really taking it's toll on Loris Karius. The German has recently endured the toughest months of his career and he hoped that the spotlight would shift off him after finally leaving Liverpool a couple of weeks ago. The former Mainz man sealed a 2 year loan move to Turkish Super Lig outfit Besiktas in a bid for first team football after his parent club shelled out a mega £66m to land Alisson Becker as his replacement from Roma. This move is a huge opportunity for Karius to prove to everyone that he's a top keeper but after making his debut on Sunday evening he has an awful lot of work to do.

His error filled 2018 continued when his new side took on Bursaspor at the Timsah Arena last night. It was a tough game on paper for Besiktas but they took the lead through Ryan Babel just after the interval. It looked like they would hang on to, but just four minutes from time they were pegged back. Karius mis-judged a cross from Yusuf Erdogan which allowed former West Ham man Diafra Sakho to nip in, leave the German in no-mans land and tuck the ball into an empty net.

It wasn't as horrendous as some of the mistakes that we've seen him make over the last few months, but one thing for sure is that his confidence is absolutely shot and it could be sometime before he repeats the level of consistency that made Liverpool shell out £5m to sign him two years ago.
