For the majority of the season, Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp has chopped and changed goalkeepers depending on the competition.
For the first half of the campaign, Simon Mignolet was number one in the Premier League and Loris Karius played in the cup competitions, including the Champions League.
Since the turn of the year, Mignolet has been demoted and his teammate has snatched the top spot.
Karius has been in between the sticks for every top-flight match, and now it has been confirmed that he will keep the gloves for Wednesday’s Champions League encounter against Porto.
The Merseyside outfit travelled to Portugal today ahead of the first leg of their last-16 tie.
Both Mignolet and Karius have faced heavy criticism this season, but the latter’s confidence has grown following some decent saves in recent matches.
Even though plenty of Liverpool fans have urged the club to sign a new shot-stopper at the end of the season, the majority seem happy that Karius will continue as number one in Europe.
Yessss! No swapping now keep consistent at the back and results will follow

The end of Mignolet after 5 years. Hope Karius does well and no please don't give Bogdan the promotion of replacing Mignolet.
