Loris Karius is set to start Liverpool's Champions League clash with Sevilla on Wednesday night.

Having progressed through the play-offs by beating Hoffenheim, the Reds kick off their Group E campaign on home soil by hosting the La Liga side.

And, at his pre-match news conference, Jürgen Klopp confirmed that – as it stands – the German goalkeeper will be between the posts for the tie at Anfield.

“What I can say is, if nothing happens overnight, Loris Karius will play tomorrow – that’s true,” the manager said when asked if the stopper will feature in Champions League games this season.
