Liverpool's goalkeeper kit for the 2017-18 season has been leaked online.
As shown on Footy Headline's website, the shirt features a new green and white design, similar to this season's but slightly darker in colour as the club celebrates its historic 125th anniversary. Designed by New Balance, the kit commemorates the landmark on the badge and is complimented by
black and white details on the sides.

This leak follows earlier ones for the outfield players; Liverpool fans will be hoping the new kits help bring similar luck to the one which started off the club's legendary history. During their debut 1892-93 season the Merseyside club, not donning their famous red kit and instead opting for a blue and white effort, claimed first place in the Lancashire League, beating off competition from teams like Blackpool and Bury.
The Anfield club eventually changed to their iconic red strip in the 1896-97 season but it's a green kit that Simon Mignolet and Loris Karius will be wearing next year, assuming both have done enough this campaign to warrant a position in Jurgen Klopp's squad.
Supporters of Klopp's side will hope to see their goalies wear this strip in the Champions League next season, although their hopes of a top-four finish were severely dented by the 2-1 loss to Crystal Palace on Sunday.
Former Liverpool striker Christian Benteke scored twice to cancel out Philippe Coutinho's earlier free-kick and boost his own side's chances of avoiding relegation. Liverpool are now just two points ahead of rivals Manchester United, who have two games in hand.
