LONDON, Jan 6: Liverpool goalkeeper Loris Karius has benefited from his time on the sidelines and he has a good chance of starting Sunday's FA Cup third-round clash with fourth tier Plymouth Argyle at Anfield, his mager Juergen Klopp said on Friday. Karius came under intense scrutiny after making a series of costly errors, forcing Klopp to drop the 23-year-old German last month and replace him with Simon Mignolet.

"It's difficult to speak about these things in public because you make all of these things big stories. But we cannot ignore the pressure you make," Klopp told reporters.

"We have to cope with it we have to deal with it, and that's why we made the change before. Sure, Loris will benefit from this step back, or step aside if you like.

"Loris forces him (Mignolet) to train on the highest level because we have two really good goalkeepers." IANS
