Klopp grouchy ahead of Liverpool's Spartak test

Klopp grouchy ahead of Liverpool's Spartak test

Both Liverpool and Spartak drew their opening game in Group E and face each other in Moscow on Tuesday, but Klopp was left bemused as reporters in Russian Federation repeatedly failed to discuss the game.

"We scored a lot of goals up front and sometimes we conceded a few", said the German goalkeeper, who kept goal in Liverpool's 2-2 draw with Sevilla in their opening group fixture.

Loris Karius, who Klopp has confirmed will start in goal instead of Simon Mignolet at Otkrytiye Arena on Tuesday, said he and his team-mates have been working on how to tighten up at the back.

"I am not sure if I have to make a decision like this [the club's 'Champions League goalkeeper']". It's all about performing.

The visitors took the lead in the second half with a goal that will make Liverpool's forward salivate.




They and Liverpool make up my Tuesday night double of over 3.5 goals in each game while the more cavalier among you might want to throw in Spurs and Limassol achieving that tally as well in Cyprus.

"He will play tomorrow and we will see, but Simon is the No1 and that's the situation".

Russian champions Spartak looked set to open their Group E campaign with a useful 1-0 victory away to Maribor, only for Damjan Bohar to net an 85th-minute equaliser for the Slovenians.

Speaking at a news conference in Moscow on Monday, Karius hopes to use these outings in Europe to prove to his manager that he can become Liverpool's first-choice goalkeeper in the Premier League. "If you're at a big club like this then you know there is going to be competition for every spot".

"Of course that's a weakness for each team - it is like we played the last three games without Sadio Mane, also a very good player".
