Jamie Carragher has told Loris Karius to 'shut up and do his job' after the Liverpool goalkeeper conceded twice in the first half of Sunday’s Premier League meeting with West Ham United.

Karius came under-fire for the second week running after failing to keep out a Dimitri Payet free-kick, despite getting a hand to the ball.

The 23-year-old goalkeeper later conceded to Michail Antonio, who established a 2-1 lead for the visitors shortly before half-time.

Karius was criticised last weekend by Carragher and his fellow Sky Sports pundit Gary Neville following his display in a 4-3 defeat to Bournemouth.

The £4.3m summer signing from Mainz later responded to both players and, while claiming to accept the former Liverpool defender’s criticism, he did not care much for Neville’s comments.

“He was a top player, then he was a manager for a short bit and now he is back to being an expert again,” Karius told the Daily Mail.

While analysing Karius' first-half display on Sky Sports, Carragher addressed the 'keeper's latest comments and criticised him for both goals.

"The 'keeper got criticism last week and he's come out this week and had a pop at Gary Neville, he's mentioned me.

“My advice to him would be just shut up and do your job," he added.

Karius' starting role has come under question since the defeat at the Vitality Stadium, in which his error lead to Nathan Ake's stoppage time winner.

The Germany Under-21 international replaced Simon Mignolet as Liverpool's first-choice 'keeper earlier this season.
