The German goalkeeper has been a regular fixture in the first team at Anfield in recent weeks after having seemingly won the number one spot from Simon Mignolet – for the time being at least.
Karius was in good form on Saturday and he produced one moment of brilliance to deny Mohamed Diame in the first half at Anfield as the Reds ended up claiming a comfortable win.
The goalkeeper has been questioned for his form in recent months but he seems to be gaining more confidence between the posts for Klopp’s side.
And Klopp was full of praise for the shot-stopper after the game, as he reflected on his top quality save to deny Diame in the first half of the victory on Merseyside.
Speaking at his post-match news conference, Klopp said: “It is exactly the life of a top-class goalkeeper – if you are at a top team, you have not a lot to do but when you have something to do you need to be there – and he was there, so it’s a good thing.
“It’s better that they had the finish and he could make the save than if they couldn’t have shot the ball at the goal because then nobody speaks about the goalkeeper, so it’s good.
“It was fantastic – it was like scoring, to be honest.”
Liverpool FC will now turn their attentions back towards Champions League affairs and the return leg of their last 16 clash against FC Porto on Tuesday night.
The Reds have all but booked their place in the quarter-finals after having thrashed the Portuguese side 5-0 in the first leg last month.
