Liverpool goalkeeper Loris Karius once again made goalkeeping mistake as his side held on to beat Tranmere 3-2 on Tuesday.

Liverpool, for now, look like they will enter the season without signing a first-choice shot-stopper, with a deal for Roma's Brazilian worldwide Alisson Becker proving hard to negotiate.

Klopp defended Karius over the error after the game.

"Loris concedes that goal, but we can not start a story always after each mistake".

"We can not change that".

Elsewhere Klopp said that he was impressed by the performances of forwads Divock Origi and Daniel Sturridge and added that he will give the duo time to show that they deserve to stay at Liverpool following respective loan spells at West Bromwich Albion and Wolfsburg last season.

Ahead of that match, Jurgen Klopp said Karius was "100 percent" influenced by the concussion after a collision with Madrid captain Sergio Ramos during the Champions League final.

She was ranked as high as number eight in the world previous year after her win in Mexico and has struggled for much of 2018. Kim actually has a 27 under par total for 72 holes which she recorded when winning the JTBC Founders Cup in 2016.

"You all can stop them immediately".

"No-one likes that goal but if we talk about the second goal I think it was Millie's [James Milner's] fault together with [Pedro] Chirvella".

"Two brilliant footballers make this mistake, but we don't talk about it".

Liverpool had led 3-0 at half-time after goals from Rafael Camacho, Sheyi Ojo and Adam Lallana, before Jonny Smith and Amadou Soukouna hit back for Tranmere.

"The boss is asking me to do a job as a right-back for him".

And the Liverpool manager maintained his support for the under-fire stopper after his mistake in the game with the newly-promoted League Two side.
