Liverpool fans want Kostas Tsimikas to start against Atalanta

A number of Liverpool fans have taken to Twitter to implore Jurgen Klopp to hand Kostas Tsimikas his first Champions League start when the Reds face Atalanta on Wednesday.

Liverpool are in a fantastic position in their group with three games remaining. Victory over the Serie A side this week will secure their spot in the knockout stages of the competition.

And they go into the tie off the back of a hugely impressive 3-0 victory at the weekend. However, it is well-documented that Klopp has had a number of problems to contend with in recent times.

Liverpool have lost several key players to injury – particularly in defence. So it would make sense to many if Klopp decided to rotate his options at the back for tonight’s game.

And with that, many are hoping that Tsimikas is handed a rare opportunity. The 24-year-old has made just two appearances for the Reds since his summer move.

One of those games came in the reverse fixture when he came off the bench. But plenty feel that he should start to hand Andrew Robertson a much-needed rest following the international break.

Resting Robertson obviously appears to be a gamble. But of course, Tsimikas is no stranger to the competition. So it looks like a fantastic opportunity to get a better look at him.

With games coming thick and fast over the coming weeks, Tsimikas – who earns £60,000-a-week, according to Spotrac – is surely going to be needed on a number of occasions.

And with Liverpool set to remain in pole position in their group whatever happens on Wednesday, using him against Atalanta seems to be as good a time as any to increase his workload.

Here is what some of the Reds fans were saying about Tsimikas ahead of the clash…
