McCarthy made three saves and conceded twice while making a rare start in Sunday's 2-1 defeat to Liverpool.
With Wayne Hennessey sidelined, it was McCarthy, not Julian Speroni, who got the nod between the sticks and that decision backfired. After a relatively quiet opening hour for McCarthy, he made a massive blunder that gave Roberto Firmino an open goal to equalize. He was then unlucky to see Christian Benteke given a spot kick in the 96th minute, which he converted. After a strong-enough collection of matches in the opening six fixtures of the season, conceding once in five-of-six, this was his first action since. Hennessey will likely regain his place in the starting XI upon his return, but in the interim, it could be McCarthy or Speroni in goal.
