Goalkeeper Loris Karius happy to compete for Liverpool spot

Instead he put it down to a collective failure, which he said was partly as a result of the attacking ethos Klopp has instilled.

"I am really impressed that we're in a Champions League press conference and we're talking about things like this", he said.

"We know how excited you are about this competition and we will give everything we have to live up to your expectations".

"Usually, I'm a really good defensive coach, but obviously that has worked not too well so far". "There are no worries".

Simon Mignolet is still the No.1 though, according to the German.

"Of course we scored a lot of goals up front then sometimes we conceded a few".

Klopp had at least been able to discuss the merits of facing a Spartak side who are likely to be missing star man Quincy Promes, comparing the situation to Liverpool's recent slump in the absence of Sadio Mane.

Liverpool missed out on Southampton centre back Virgil van Dijk in the summer and while left-back Andrew Robertson was the only defender added in the transfer window Klopp says he is happy with the squad.

"It is good healthy competition".

The visitors took the lead in the second half with a goal that will make Liverpool's forward salivate.

Fellaini has not recovered from an ankle injury he suffered in a tackle by Shane Long in the 1-0 Premier League win over Southampton on Saturday and was not in the squad which departed for Russian Federation on Monday.

"When I get to play, it is a chance to prove himself to the manager and show I am ready".
