  • Liverpool out to make title statement

"Of course - all good, all good", Klopp told Liverpoolfc.com about his talking with Coutinho since he returned to the team's Melwood training facility. Their highest scorer with two goals this season, Raheem Sterling, however, will miss the clash against his former club through suspension - he was sent off moments after scoring the victor against Bournemouth.

The 31-year-old defender has started all three of City's opening Premier League clashes off the back of an injury-plagued 2016/17 campaign with Pep Guardiola's side where he made only 15 appearances in all competitions.

He featured and scored for Brazil during the global break, but Klopp has decided against putting him straight back into the Liverpool team after a disrupted pre-season has left him lacking fitness. They have, however, been unbeaten so far this season.

"Roberto played in the second game a little bit longer, but both are fit so that's cool, they're healthy so now we have to see", Klopp continued.

"I am tipping City to win, although I always say that". In the future, similar things will happen and I think we handled it really well. The next time he will be able to play. There's one thing you can be sure of in this game, and that's goals.


City were enduring one of those seasons which would become all-too familiar to their fans as they were knocked out of Europe and out of the League Cup (by fourth division Bury) by early October.

'I think, for him, this has to be the season, ' said Garcia.

"And you have to hope that they don't score - that's not about what we do".

Guardiola's treatment of Sergio Aguero continues to raise eyebrows. It is City's first game since the close of a transfer window where they spent in excess of £200million, tailoring the squad to their manager's specifications. It's absolutely no problem and I'm completely fine with the situation.

Klopp has previously stated that Coutinho would be welcomed back into his fold, with Liverpool remaining firm in their stance that the player would not sold, having rejected three offers from Spain. "The players come from all over the world and had different roles in different systems". Now it's time for him to concentrate on rewarding the fans that pay their hard-earned money to watch their team every week.
