Jurgen Klopp is sticking with Loris Karius for Liverpool’s game with Middlesbrough on Wednesday evening, the Echo claims.
The young keeper has been stuck in the middle of a war of words between our manager, pundits and ex-players following his poor performance versus West Ham on Sunday, which partly cost us two points at Anfield.
The young German could have positioned himself better for Payet’s freekick and found himself in no-man’s land for Antonio’s effort.
The weekend previous he was similarly at fault for two of Bournemouth’s goals, which ended up costing us all three points and now we sit six behind Chelsea in the title race.
Yesterday, Klopp attacked the Neville brothers who’ve been criticising Karius loudest, and is set to prove his faith in the 23-year-old by starting him tomorrow.
Many fans want Liverpool to temporarily pull Karius out of the firing line and use Simon Mignolet, but Klopp is stubborn and believes his summer signing is the right man going forward.
Now we know Karius is playing, our only job is to get behind the keeper and show him what Liverpool supporters are really like: the best in the business.
