Liverpool fans heap praise on Konstantinos Tsimikas after Carabao Cup win v Leicester

Liverpool progressed into the semi-finals of the Carabao Cup after a penalty-shootout win over Leicester City at Anfield. Many fans have heaped praise on Konstantinos Tsimikas, for his display at left-back.

Tsimikas, 25, has been in much-improved form this time around – in what is his second season at Liverpool. In his first season at the Reds following his move from Olympiakos, he only managed seven senior appearances.

Greece international Tsimikas has already played 13 times this season, improving with every minute he wears a Liverpool shirt. Against Leicester, he was superb – eventually coming off after 80 minutes, replaced by Owen Beck.

Liverpool came from two goals down, with Jamie Vardy scoring an early brace – to win on penalties. Takumi Minamino scored a last-minute equaliser for Liverpool to draw 3-3, after Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and Diogo Jota also netted.

What are Liverpool fans saying about Tsimikas, after win over Leicester?

Andy Robertson was sent off against Tottenham on Sunday, and Tsimikas will be forced to replace the Scotland ace over the Christmas period. So, it was important Tsimikas put on a good show against the Foxes.

He certainly did that, as Liverpool booked their place in the last four. Goalkeeper Caomihin Kelleher was to thank, making two saves in the penalty shootout. £60,000-a-week starTsimikas (Spotrac) was superb at both ends.

WhoScored report he made two tackles, more than any of his teammates, but also four key passes – just as much as Roberto Firmino, joint first. Reds fans applauded his efforts on Twitter.
