Jurgen Klopp still has faith in under-fire Loris Karius

Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp says he has faith in Loris Karius despite dropping him for last night's game against Middlesbrough.

The young keeper has come in for plenty of criticism in recent weeks, including a public spat with the Neville brothers and Liverpool legend Jamie Carragher.

Last night Klopp decided to replace Karius with Simon Mignolet to take the 23-year-old out of the firing line.

Liverpool easily beat Middlesbrough at the Riverside Stadium, with goals from Adam Lallana and Divock Origi.

England manager praises maturity of LFC's Henderson as he names him England captain for Slovenia game

Gareth Southgate says Jordan Henderson earned the right to replace Wayne Rooney as England captain after successfully stepping out of Steven Gerrard's shadow at Anfield.

The interim manager wants Rooney to remain as national skipper and squad figurehead despite dropping him for Tuesday's game in Slovenia, but it is Henderson who will lead the side out for the first time in Ljubljana.

The 26-year-old took the Liverpool armband from local hero Gerrard when the latter left the club in 2015 and has been impressive in the role.

And that was not lost on Southgate as he chose the midfielder ahead of other candidates such as Joe Hart and Gary Cahill.

"What stood out for me is that he has taken over as captain at a club where he has succeeded one of the most iconic English footballers of all time," said Southgate.

"That would have been a difficult challenge for him and he has matured from that. He has shown great leadership skills with his club.
