Coutinho will not feature against Man City - Klopp

Coutinho will not feature against Man City - Klopp”

The 17-year-old, who has yet to feature in Liverpool's match-day squad this season, is set to be offered a senior contract when he turns 18 next month.

He has not yet played a match for the Reds this term because of a reported back injury but, having joined up with his national side for World Cup qualifiers, he made two substitute appearances against Ecuador and Colombia, scoring a trademark goal in the first match. We had this conversation. We can use these four or five days for proper training - we have all the numbers [regarding Coutinho's physical performance] from the Brazilian FA.

"Sometimes it's impossible after the worldwide break - different plans, different positions, they played all over the world, I don't like this but we can not change it - but you saw City struggled also a little bit. He could have played 15-20 minutes for us again in the City game, maybe longer, but I think it makes sense".

It stands to reason that Coutinho will be involved in some capacity against Sevilla, then, but Klopp has also called for more from his team than was on show at the Etihad, regardless of who is involved, per the club site.

"Nothing that I'm aware of was unforgivable", Klopp said. I was really angry at half-time. "It wasn't clear, it was not an easy time, but that is the transfer window and this is the only time when people can make transfers". It's a normal thing, he came in yesterday and accepted the situation. It was not that I had to say something about it.

"We play on Wednesday, we play on Saturday, we play, play, play, play, play".

Liverpool, who thumped Arsenal 4-0 in their last match before the worldwide break, are second in the Premier League after three matches, with two wins and a draw.
