Lloris Karius has spent a fair bit of time this season being trolled by the media and on Twitter.
His form left a fair bit to be desired, and after being dropped by manager Jurgen Klopp, had a huge amount to prove ahead of the EFL Cup semi final against Southampton.
Thankfully for Liverpool, he delivered in spades, and managed to keep it at 1-0 during the first half. He made save after save, and the back four looked poor to say the very least.
Of course, that led the majority of Twitter to comment on his form, and even suggest he should come back in for the game against Manchester United.

Karius only one who can hold head up high first if not for him we'd be 3 0 down. Very poor and sloppy from others. Fatigue possibly

How fortunes change. We were all dissing Karius, and now he is keeping us in this tie. That's football. Don't hate, just have faith. #LFC

Terrible first half, all the ball and not a clue what to do with it. Karius has been very good, has needed it with the awful defending #LFC

Karius saving shots that are straight at him almost as well as De Gea

Only positive from that half is Karius. He's been exceptional.
