Though his position in Liverpool's goalkeeper pecking order remains to be seen, new signing Loris Karius is set to become Liverpool's literal number one when he finally puts on his shirt for his new club.

Of special note regarding the significance of the Number 1 is that though Brad Jones is the most recent Liverpool keeper to wear the No. 1 shirt, the last first choice keeper to wear the number is none other than Istanbul legend Jerzy Dudek. Fans can read into that what they will, but independent of his number it's fair to say the Karius signing is one that has many people very excited.
