Klopp confirms Loris Karius will start against Maribor

Jurgen Klopp insists Liverpool's tough run of results has not dealt damage to the team's level of confidence.

The game will be the second of three in the space of eight days for Liverpool, sandwiched between last Saturday's visit of United and next Sunday's trip to Wembley to face Spurs.

It has been a similar tale in Europe, with Liverpool drawing their opening two fixtures in Champions League Group E, squandering a lead at home to Sevilla in their opener, before being frustrated in Moscow by Spartak last time out. "There is space for us to improve, of course, but the shape in general is good", added the German manager, sounding humble but confident. "It is easy to remember how hard we fought be to be in the Champions League and we have to make the most of it now".

We can't say we'll wait until they lose the ball.

Ideally, Klopp would be in a position to rest a couple of key players ahead of another important Premier League clash next weekend - they travel to Wembley to face Tottenham on Sunday - but Liverpool can not afford to drop any more points and must be wary of Maribor, who are unbeaten in their domestic league. "In some moments they will be compact and together, we have to do the same". "We need to be concentrated and courageous against a top team of a European league", he said. They are the only team yet to pick up a card in this season's Champions League.

"Now we have twice Maribor and know we know what we have to do - we have to get the points".

"It's a very, very important game so, again, it's always a decision about rhythm and being used to each other or bringing in fresh legs".

"I saw that they're an offensive-minded team, offensive players really strong, in style, keeping and protecting the ball, fluent play, different buildup formations, trying to find the two No. 6s, playing through balls-stuff like this".

The Kop boss has told his side they need to make up lost ground in back-to-back games against the Slovenian minnows after dropping points in draws against Seville and Spartak Moscow.
