Loris Karius has taken to social media to thank Lucas Leiva for scoring Liverpool’s winner in the Reds’ 1-0 FA Cup win over Plymouth on Wednesday night.

The Reds successfully booked their place in the fourth round of the cup competition as they won the replay thanks to the Brazilian’s first-half header from a corner.

Divock Oriki missed the chance to make it 2-0 from the penalty spot late on but Jurgen Klopp’s men held out to set up a fourth-round clash against Wolves at Anfield.

Karius started in goal ahead of Simon Mignolet and helped the Reds book their place in the next round of the competition.

And the Liverpool goalkeeper took to social media to pay tribute to Lucas following the midfielder’s winner on Wednesday night.

Karius shared the photo above on his personal Instagram account and wrote: “Through to the next FA Cup round 👍🏼 Congrats @leivalucas for scoring the winner! 😀🙌🏼 Thanks for the support! #PLYLIV #YNWA #LK1 @liverpoolfc”
