Karius Vs. Mignolet - What do the Numbers Say?

In my Football Manager avatar (currently managing Newcastle), whenever one of my players or my team is criticised, I jump to their defence. Press conference after press conference, I keep clicking on the option that I think will be the best defence of my team or player(s).

Liverpool's strength in numbers under Klopp

Although this season is still in its early stages, some players have stood out for their respective clubs. For Liverpool, as a fan, I've found it refreshing that rather than just one or two players standing out, it's been a handful and much more of a team effort, than outstanding individual displays.
