Coutinho out for Reds against Man City

Coutinho out for Reds against Man City”

Liverpool are eager to put behind the heavy Premier League loss to Manchester City and bounce back during their Champions League game against Sevilla on Wednesday, goalkeeper Simon Mignolet has said.

Senegal global Mane, who will serve a three-match domestic ban after receiving a direct red, was likely to feature in the mid-week game while Brazilian playmaker Philippe Coutinho could make his first start of the campaign.

Barcelona director Albert Soler claimed Liverpool's demands were closer to £180m.

Coutinho appeared as a substitute twice for Brazil over the global break, scoring in a 2-0 World Cup qualifying win over Ecuador.

After joking that he would not answer questions on Coutinho and the transfer window, Klopp said: "We had a very good talk, he was in a very good mood and training was even better".

"I had to make a decision".

"We have now to continue with the pre-season, not too long, but in a few sessions we have to give ourselves the time because in the next month we have seven games". We had this conversation. That means we have to try to prepare him now for the rest of the season - that's quite hard with our schedule.

"So I chose to leave him out for City".

"We have got all the numbers (on Coutinho) from the Brazilian FA - the training, the intensity of the training, stuff like that, and it was all OK".

"We have to take the first 20 minutes and how we played before the worldwide break and take it into the next game", Mignolet told British media.

"But I think this makes sense - and he agreed completely so it's not that he said he doesn't need training and wants to play".

Liverpool have made a strong start to their Premier League campaign and sit in second place behind Manchester United after two wins and a draw from their first three fixtures.
