Bravery: Loris Karius surrenders late equaliser in first Besiktas appearance
On-loan Liverpool goalkeeper Loris Karius conceded a late equaliser in his first appearance for Besikstas, a 1-1 draw against Bursaspor on Sunday.

Karius, who finalised a two-year loan on Aug. 25, came out to claim a cross from the byline from Bursaspor midfielder Yusuf Erdogan, but forward Diafra Sakho reached it at the edge of the box before the goalkeeper and tapped home in the 86th minute.

Replaced in July as Liverpool's No. 1 by Alisson, who signed from Roma for a club record €62.5 million, Karius chose to leave amid significant scrutiny for his errors, including two in the loss to Real Madrid in the Champions League final in May.

"[Klopp] told me he would like to have me in the squad because he wants to have the best quality players," Karius said last week. "But I spoke to him and asked him for my wish. It is important to me to play for Besiktas.

"I talked with him for a long time and he understood my situation. I think it was a good deal for everyone. He wished me well but he said he would have liked to keep me."

Meanwhile, Alisson opened the season with three consecutive clean sheets, but he surrendered a Premier League goal for the first time in Liverpool's 2-1 victory over Leicester City on Saturday.
