Tsimikas admits mental struggle after recent mistakes – and Klopp agrees

Tsimikas has been thrust into an unlikely position since the October international break, with a shoulder injury for Robertson bumping him up to first-choice left-back.

The Greek has not exactly excelled in his five starts since the promotion, with an error leading to a goal in Thursdays 3-2 defeat to Toulouse attracting widespread criticism.

But Tsimikas was retained three days later and came away from the 3-0 victory over Brentford with two assists, the first a fine cross for Mo Salahs header.
