"Underrated" Firmino Now Getting More Credit After Coutinho Exit — Klopp

"If I play a good game then the goals will appear". He could have come and played short, but that might have been blocked by Stephens.

As a result of Liverpool's reluctance to negotiate in summer, Coutinho started the season with Reds. 'It is a quiet group, we received all new players very well'.

He told Sport however that; "To play alongside so many great players is much better".

"They are a complete team", he said when asked how his side would go about stopping their opponents. Memories of November's surrender against Sevilla have not faded. "It's part of our history unfortunately".

The report also suggests that Stamford Bridge was discussed as a potential venue for the fixture.

For all that Klopp has set up to make sense, the puzzle will need to be completed soon. Defenders took risks but only when necessary. Liverpool looked, in a word, balanced. "Each one has their own ways and their own experiences". It worked a treat.

But don't panic, it's on the international stage. After some joy for the hosts in the opening 20 minutes, Liverpool won the midfield battle decisively.

"What's helped me a lot is the welcome I've received in the dressing room: everyone is very calm".

Having a structured framework in the centre then permitted Firmino, Mane and Salah to push higher, especially with the nervous Sa in net, meaning the threat of the counter-attack decreased as Liverpool dominated. "That's why he always plays". "He's different to other people".

In the league, they've scored 61 times.

Although there is no Keita to select currently, Klopp opted to exercise control in the Champions League last-16 first-leg tie and his three forwards were liberated as they led Liverpool to a 5-0 win. It could sometimes feel like shoehorning another forward into the side.
