Liverpool legend Carragher states the Reds have committed a mistake this month

Liverpool legend Carragher states the Reds have committed a mistake this month

Their leading scorer Mohamed Salah, who has hit 23 goals in 29 appearances this season, is in contention after missing two matches because of a groin problem.

Typically, though, Klopp values a team more than an individual. This year Pep Guardiola has deployed Kevin De Bruyne and David Silva in deeper roles than we are used to seeing them, which in turn has allowed City to still field three pacy forward players ahead of them. He will be a Liverpool player in the summer.

Firmino is a key part of manager Jurgen Klopp's 'gegenpressing' tactic, with the No. 9 happy to defend from the front by pressing defenders in possession of the ball. "If we do it in this window, I don't know", he explained.

"It can't be that at all".

Adam Lallana will be a central figure for Liverpool without Philippe Coutinho.

Coutinho similar to Iniesta? The amount of goals he has scored from outside the box is just ridiculous.

Leicester City winger Riyad Mahrez and Monaco ace Thomas Lemar have both been touted as potential replacements for Coutinho. It was clear he was not ready to do that anymore.

"The final decision, if I would have said 'no way', the club would have said: 'okay, let's try'", explained Klopp. We talk about the age, the price, everything.

"I knew it would come up again in the transfer window and I knew it would be very difficult".

Carragher's point about Coutinho's excellent form since last summer is undeniably true, and evidence suggests that the midfielder would have continued to play well until the summer, had Liverpool retained him.

Word from inside Liverpool is they are not actively pursuing him at this moment.

Victory over City on Sunday would barely affect the visitor's title hopes, but it would be a massive boost for Jurgen Klopp's team in the sideshow of finishing in the top four.

It appears it's going to take some time for Coutinho to make his way up for his unveiling, but fear not, we'll keep you updated on all the latest developments including what the player himself has to say.

Alberto Moreno was back with the group on Thursday following an ankle lay-off, but is not likely to be involved on the weekend. You always have to react. 'Philippe Coutinho is a world-class player but if he's not 100 per cent, he's not that international class or Premier League class any more. "I'd love to create one for Klopp as I love him".

New Barcelona signing Philippe Coutinho wrote a farewell message for his former club Liverpool and shared it on Instagram for his and his former clubs fans.

"Coutinho started getting into double figures for goals over the past couple of years", he wrote in his column in The Times.

So who will Liverpool spend their money on? After all, the 22-year-old is a man for all occasions, as he can tackle, dribble, pass and shoot.
