Jurgen Klopp says Loris Karius must "deliver" amid Liverpool transfer talk

Jurgen Klopp says Loris Karius must

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp has insisted he has not given a second thought to his team's 18-match unbeaten run ahead of their trip to Swansea City on Monday.

His goal in an outstanding performance against Manchester City last weekend took his tally for the season to 17, 10 of which have come in the Premier League.

The success of the transfer window resulted into a successful campaign with the club climbing to the top of the Premier League and breaking Arsenal's records of most consecutive victories in the league.

"That's all the past and I'm not really interested".

Liverpool are reluctant to let Danny Ings leave with Daniel Sturridge on the verge of an Anfield exit.

Foremost in the conversation is the impact of Roberto Firmino and whether he is Liverpool's worst kept secret.

"I don't want to call it being number 1A or number 1B but the situation wasn't satisfying for me", the 24-year-old said. It's not like we want that, but it's still possible.

"We have a long and very decisive part of the season still to play", he said.

"It is not nice for Simon but a big chance for Loris", Klopp admitted. In four months, the England international has shown signs of why £35m was not such a extortionate price after all.

Klopp claims that he is happy with the players now on his books, and has confidence in those already at his disposal to cover the loss of Coutinho and allow him to delay drawing up a transfer strategy until the summer.

Alexis Sanchez has been told to train with the youth team as Arsene Wenger closes in on deals to land Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Henrikh Mkhitaryan.

Liverpool fans are delighted to see the dynamic midfielder return to the starting eleven, but many will expect a marquee signing to replace Coutinho.

Last year I decided already that if I had the opportunity to do it, we would do it between December 30 and January 1. Will they challenge for the title next season?

Liverpool are third in the league, level with fourth-placed Chelsea on 47 points and are unbeaten in 14 games.

"He's a fantastic football player", the German said, per the Liverpool Echo.

Sunderland as of late selected former Wales boss Chris Coleman as their manager after his resignation from the National group following his failure to land a World Cup place for Wales.
