The Liverpool fans in the Transfer Tavern have been reacting to comments made by their German shot-stopper, Loris Karius. The 24-year-old has put in a number of impressive displays between the sticks over the last few months, usurping Simon Mignolet as the number one at Anfield. Karius, whilst speaking in an interview for the Liverpool website, has said that the Afield game shows just how quickly things can change.
"When you think, 'this is really tough', and then you hear all the people pushing you on. It's just, mentally, it helps." @LorisKarius on the importance of the #LFC support: https://t.co/tEPqrUnjZv pic.twitter.com/YeL4ptvp0L

The Liverpool fans propping our bar up are all nervous and excited as they prepare for their biggest game of the season so far. Jurgen Klopp is to meet Pep Guardiola again tonight at The Etihad as our resident Reds aim to be in the Champions League last four for the first time in ten years. Klopp’s side beat City 3-0 last Wednesday at Anfield as first-half goals from Mo Salah, Sadio Mane and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain put the Merseysiders in control of the tie.
The form of Loris Karius and the Liverpool backline will be crucial tonight of they’re to get past an all-conquering Manchester City side that are just one win away from securing the Premier League title. Guardiola’s City has lost just six games this season, with two of those coming in their last two games against Manchester United and Liverpool. Our local Kopites will be praying that the Citizens are still hurting from losing two games on the bounce as they look to sneak past them tonight. The tie is still open with City proving before that they’re capable of turning on the style when they need goals, although whichever way the tie goes, it promises to be entertaining.
