Klopp had good chat with Coutinho

Klopp had good chat with Coutinho

On early evidence, Coutinho's return to the first team - he missed the opening weeks of the season due to a reported back problem, before leaving for worldwide duty with Brazil - has been seamless.

Speaking to Sky Sports after the game, via Turkish Football, Carragher said: "Emre Can really struggled when he played in the middle of the back three and didn't look solid at all".

"I had to make a decision".

"Yes, he went to the national team and trained normally, but now we have to prepare for a normal season so we have seven games [before the next worldwide break] and we saw training this morning and thought "OK, maybe we should use him immediately" because he was really good, but that doesn't make sense". We had this conversation.

The Sky Blues trot out in a 3-5-2 formation, with Brazilian custodian Ederson starting behind a back-three of Danilo, John Stones and Nicolas Otamendi. Klopp needs a general at the back and the club will regret not getting him the man he so badly wanted for the first half of this season.

Mane took to Instagram after the match to issue an apology to the world's most expensive keeper and wish him a speedy recovery. We can use this four or five days for real and proper training.

"Hopefully", Guardiola concluded. "He can walk but maybe he won't play in the next game." .

Jose Mourinho has worked hard to bring in new quality players this summer, and the improvement has been evident, with 10 goals scored and none conceded in their first three games so far.

"He agreed completely. It was a good conversation".

Coutinho handed in a transfer request last month in an attempt to engineer a move to the Camp Nou, but the Reds insisted they would entertain no offers for the Samba star.

Trent Alexander-Arnold was then booked for fouling De Bruyne on the left, but the Belgium international's delivery was easily cleared.

The last meeting between the two clubs saw a second-half Sergio Aguero strike cancel out James Milner's penalty for Liverpool at the Etihad back in March, with the game finishing one goal apiece. I really think we handled it really well. "I am so happy with his performances and not just today", Guardiola said. It's a normal thing.

"He came in on Thursday and 100 per cent accepted the situation", said Klopp.

Even without Coutinho, I think Liverpool could get something on Saturday.

"If not, Chamberlain should start in the middle, that's where he wants to play and that's why he didn't go to Chelsea".

Liverpool will look to build on their demolition of Arsenal when they take on Manchester City at the Etihad Stadium on Saturday lunchtime.
