Jurgen Klopp is not committing to a first-choice goalkeeper as Loris Karius readies himself for his Liverpool debut on Tuesday.
Karius, a summer signing from Mainz, has been sidelined since the end of pre-season when he broke a bone in his right hand and had surgery to insert wires to correct it.
Asked whether Mignolet would remain first-choice for Saturday’s Premier League visit of Hull, he said: “Where is my possibility to answer? “When I say ‘Yes’ what will this mean for Loris? If I say ‘No’ what will it mean for Simon?
“There is no number one so there is no decision to make, it is all about performing, improvement and showing how much you can help the team
“I don’t want to make a big battle of these two goalkeepers. They need to feel secure… It is all about what I see in training and what I see in training is two very good goalkeepers. Now the boys have to perform.”
