Beating Liverpool won't be any easier without Philippe Coutinho — Pep Guardiola

Liverpool will reinvest full Coutinho fee, says Klopp

Liverpool will reinvest full Coutinho fee, says Klopp

"The red card changed the game and maybe for Man City the season", said Klopp, who confirmed that Mo Salah is likely to return after recovering from the thigh strain that caused him to miss the past two matches. "The fact is he has gone now we have to think, 'what have we got that is going to get the job done?'" It was actually too early for my plans. I would say it's a pretty easy answer. We were fighting until the last second and tried everything. Because I know we tried absolutely everything.

"[Alex] Oxlade-Chamberlain is there, [Adam] Lallana is back, but obviously you are going to miss Coutinho". He was not in team training so far. Do I think I can use him and can he help us? "You always need to react".

Klopp said his side will not be fazed by City, who have swept all before them this season and enjoy an 18-point advantage over fourth-placed Liverpool. You can learn better.

'You cannot use him if he's not 100 per cent, ' he said.

"I will be judged depending on results and what happens", Guardiola added.

"Of course, is a master of the counter attack, so they're a team who can arrive in the finishing area in three or four touches. But I could not decide differently". It's all about the atmosphere in the club. Though he has just moved there, He knows that Barcelona has no shortage of attacking options and talent just like himself. He did fantastic and the team did fantastic. He has the things that we like. The loss of Coutinho, while significant, should not really harm Liverpool too much this weekend. On Sunday, for example, if there's a free kick in the stadium from 18 or 20 yards and everyone is thinking: 'ah, Phil'.

It is exactly this new role that has made Mahrez the ideal heir to the throne vacated by Coutinho. I wish Jürgen and the team nothing but joy and success for the rest of this season and beyond.

"We lost plenty of players at Dortmund".

"We played against each other a couple of times and he's a fantastic player".

Recently acquired Liverpool midfielder Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain feels that the exit of Philippe Coutinho will not affect the club. Will it happen? Watch this space.

Paris Saint-Germain goalkeeper Kevin Trapp is happy to stay at the French giants for now as he continues to attract interest from the Premier League.
