The new Liverpool goalkeeper has been ruled out for two months with a broken hand.
The German goalkeeper is one of seven new faces at Anfield this summer in what has been a busy transfer window for Reds boss Jurgen Klopp.
His arrival has been warmly welcomed by the club’s fans, who are hoping to see him replace Mignolet as the club’s number one.
They will have to wait to see him though after he was ruled out for at least the first two months of the season with a broken hand following a collision with Dejan Lovren.
His absence means Mignolet has a second chance to impress, and he says he is intending to do his talking on the pitch.
“I don’t want to speak too much about it because I want to do my talking on the pitch,” he told the Liverpool Echo.
“It’s down to me to put in performances and play the best I can. It may be that Loris is injured now, but that doesn’t mean I’ll take my foot off the gas. It doesn’t change anything.”
It remains to be seen who will be the Liverpool number one next season when Karius is fit once again.
There is no denying that Mignolet has struggled to impress since arriving at Anfield, with last season once again seeing him struggle to win over the fans.
With Karius out injured for the beginning of the campaign, he has been given a chance to try to establish himself again, and it will be interesting to see if he can do that or if he will be replaced when the German returns.
