Karius: I have to show my worth – for now and the long-term

Loris Karius is determined to prove himself worthy of the chance Jürgen Klopp has given him to be Liverpool’s regular goalkeeper.

After continuing his role between the posts in the cup competitions for the Anfield victory over Everton, the German was selected again when Manchester City visited in the Premier League last weekend.

On the day, the manager confirmed that the position is the 24-year-old’s to retain, stating: “Usually I could say it’s a decision for today but if Loris now is able to perform, he will stay in the goal.”

Karius was naturally encouraged by those words, of course, but is conscious of the need to repay Klopp’s faith in him with a series of consistent displays.

“Now you are back in goal you have to prove yourself and show how good you are to stay No.1 in the long-term, not just for the moment, to prove maybe I’m the long-term No.1 that can be in goal here for Liverpool for years to come,” he told

“But that’s far ahead. So, for right now I just want to help the team in the remaining four months of the season to reach our goals and do well.”

‘Oxlade-Chamberlain is not someone you want to come up against’

18th January 2018

A big character, a brave person, and not a player you want to come up against – Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain has not needed long to make an impression at Liverpool.

In a new series on, Joe Gomez talks us through the individuals that have helped to make Jürgen Klopp’s side one of the most prolific in the Premier League and Europe.

Part two turns the spotlight on Oxlade-Chamberlain, and specifically how the No.21 has used his infectious personality to positively influence a squad with major ambitions this season…

The 24-year-old made the bold move from Arsenal to Anfield on transfer deadline day last summer to join Klopp’s project ahead of what should be the peak years of his career.

He had to be patient at the beginning but with each appearance Reds fans have been afforded more frequent glimpses of the athleticism and nous that the former Southampton prodigy can provide to the team.

Roberto Firmino: Liverpool’s No.9

17th January 2018

As examples of self-evaluation go, Roberto Firmino’s upon signing for Liverpool has proven to be unerringly accurate.

“I’m a player who works hard and who’s constantly looking to support my teammates on the pitch,” the Brazilian pledged, during his first interview as a Red following his transfer from Hoffenheim in June 2015.

“I’m a player with an attitude and who knows how to play a tactical role with the team.”

Two-and-a-half years on, few observers would disagree. Certainly not his manager, anyway.

“What a player! What can I say? If he loses the ball, he fights for it back. If he loses it again, he fights for it,” Jürgen Klopp told this website earlier in the season.
