It comes as so surprise to see Liverpool goalkeeper Loris Karius practising with high balls ahead of Saturday’s league encounter with Crystal Palace.

It’s one area where the Reds have struggled on more than one occasion this season and with Crystal Palace boasting the likes of Puncheon and Townsend to complement Benteke’s aeriel threat, the goalkeeper may well make the difference between 3 points won or lost for Liverpool.

It could well live up to be a close contest between Liverpool’s gegenpressing football with its aerial failings and Palace’ old fashioned tactic of wingers and aerial dominance.
