Liverpool fans are divided on who should be their first-choice goalkeeper after Bournemouth capitulation
It was all going so well for Jurgen Klopp's side.
With just under 15 minutes to go, things couldn't have been going better for Liverpool.
They were 3-1 up away to a tough Bournemouth team and looked certain to secure the three points and stay in touch with league leaders, Chelsea.
However the wheels well and truly came off as they conceded two goals in a four minute period thanks to strikes from man-of-the-match Ryan Fraser and Steve Cooke.
In fact Fraser, who only came on as 55th minute substitute, won a penalty, secured an assist and scored a goal for his side.
Not bad for 35 minutes work.
Ryan Fraser since coming on:
- Won a penalty
- Scored a goal
- Assisted the equaliser

Livepool fans couldn't believe what they were seeing.
Though things went from bad to worse in injury-time when Chelsea loanee, Nathan Ake, bundled home the ball after Liverpool goalkeeper, Loris Karius, fumbled an initial shot.
Safe to say this didn't go down too well with Liverpool supporters.
Some were calling for the return of much maligned keeper, Simon Mignolet.
Although not all Reds were that keen on the idea
How bad a GK has to be, for calls of "Mignolet back" to appear. I am not an expert but Karius looked so much out of depth - painful to watch

Elsewhere, a Chelsea fan pointed out this rather embarrassing record for the German goalkeeper.

And some were resulting to desperate measures to solve Liverpool's goalkeeping problem.
Out of Mignolet and Karius, I'd have Sturridge in goal. #LFC

This will be a defeat that will surely hurt Jurgen Klopp and he must be beginning to think that he may have to delve into the transfer market in January for a new goalkeeper.
