​Karius determined to become long-term Liverpool number one

Loris Karius believes that he has what it takes to become the number one goalkeeper at Liverpool.

Karius has been in a good run of form, after getting in the team ahead of Simon Mignolet. Now he wants to make sure that spot is his for the long-term.

"If you read the press as a Liverpool player then every week we would have five new signings in every position,'' Karius said.

"You can't go crazy about the speculation. When I look at the training, I think we do have good quality already with the keepers.

"I think we've been a bit unlucky at times. Often you don't have much to do.

"Then if you don't do something 100 percent right it weighs a lot heavier than for other goalies at smaller clubs who have several more saves to make in a game.

"That's life at a big club like Liverpool and you have to deal with it.

"I just want to present myself well and then I'll have the chance to play at this club for the next season as well.

"That's the challenge facing me personally. I also want to help this team achieve as much as we can.

"As well as the top four, we still have the Champions League.

"We want to go forward in that and why not win it?''
