Liverpool legend Souness: Reds must learn from humbling Man City defeat

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp has revealed that the appeal on Sadio Mane's red card to reduce the tenure of the suspension from three matches was a waste of time in every sense of the word.

Manchester City goalkeeper Ederson Moraes is back in preparing in the wake of influencing a fast recuperation from his kick to the face in Saturday's 5-0 to prevail upon Liverpool, report by ESPNFC. There were a lot of situations which were similar.

But with Claudio Bravo - himself a £17m signing last summer - riding the bench, Guardiola may not wish to take the risk, despite Ederson's impressive form at the start of the season.

"I wouldn't have wanted to play for a reason like this, an injury to a team-mate, but you always have to be prepared".

"It's important he wants to do that in all the games he plays".

"All the other players were lucky only Sadio was not lucky".

"We can not change this and it's a sport where this happens". We don't want to underestimate this, it looks bad and Ederson was lucky nothing more serious happened in this situation.

"The most important thing for me to say is not even 1% of Sadio wanted to put the goalkeeper in danger".

'In sport, things like this can happen.

He took Mohamed Salah off at half-time in the Man City game and may have had one eye on this Sevilla game when he made that decision and Liverpool have a chance to prove they can bounce back from a big disappointment in this game. I don't blame the ref for the decision. He didn't give the red card immediately but when he saw the player bleeding.

'It was our duty to appeal but as I said after the game.

Then I would expect to see Coutinho starting against Burnley in the Premier League on Saturday, when his invention and guile would be very useful to unlock the door against opponents who will come to Anfield intent on defending.
