Loris Karius to be back on goal


Loris Karius is expected to get his chance to reignite his career when Newcastle take on Manchester United in Sunday's Carabao Cup final

Newcastle's No1 Nick Pope is suspended and Karl Dallow is bound to watch from the stands having played for United in the competition this season.

Jamie O'Hara told Grosvenor Sport : "I think Man United win this one now. I just look at it now and think, Loris Karius in goal, he hasn’t played, he’s Newcastle’s third choice!” O’Hara said.

“The pressure is going to be on him big time. I hope he does have a good game, I really do, because that Champions League final wrecked his confidence for a long time.

“Hopefully, he has a good game, but I just can’t see Newcastle getting past Manchester United; United are in great form at the minute, and Newcastle are stuttering. It’s a bad time to have a final for them. Now the tie goes in Man United’s favour just on the fact Newcastle have a third-choice goalkeeper and they’re in great form.

“I missed a penalty in the League Cup final against Man United and played in a final a year after and was still thinking about the miss. It’s impossible to get it out of your mind. You learn to deal with it and get on with it, but it will have knocked his confidence.

“Hopefully, he has learned from it. If he is a good keeper, he will be thinking about it but thinking about it in a positive light – don’t make that mistake again, don’t do anything stupid, and keep it simple. It might actually hold him in good stead, we'll see."
