No Success As Watford Fight Back To Hold Liverpool

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp has revealed that he has no choice over whether Philippe Coutinho will end up leaving the club and joining Barcelona or staying put at Anfield.

Our thoughts go out to anyone who's packed their defence full of Liverpool players in fantasy football.

Barca, who sold Neymar to Paris St Germain last week for a world-record £200.6m, made their offer on Wednesday having already had a £72m bid for Coutinho turned down in July.

Having declared that the club's want-away Brazil forward Philippe Coutinho is not for sale, Klopp may need to strengthen his back four who looked completely at sea nearly every time the home side came forward. Asked whether he was upset with Coutinho's conduct, the manager said: "First of all, if I would be upset with the player, I would tell him".

'If they don't sell him, then I'm not involved anymore.

'I am responsible for all of players, not just one, two or three.

"I can not say a lot about it", Klopp said on the subject of Coutinho. That is what I was always doing. We passed but couldn't see what we actually wanted.

"But for us different things are important, the physicality in the beginning - not ready for these things".

The brain-fade derailed Newcastle's momentum and any chance of pulling off an upset against last years Premier League runner-ups. It's taken a little while in the season opener, but Tottenham Hotspur have found their stride against Newcastle United .


Liverpool have a short week as the club will travel to Germany for Tuesday's Champions League playoff game.

"You have to ask them".

"Then we scored two wonderful goals in the second half, it was really good; we had our moments and then we conceded an offside goal".

Goals from Sadio Mane, Roberto Firmino and new arrival Mohamed Salah saw the Reds leading in the closing stages at Vicarage Road, after Stefano Okaka and Abdoulaye Doucoure had netted in the first half for Marco Silva's side.

"We've conceded from a set-piece, that's disappointing, that needs to change quickly if we're going to do anything this season".

But speaking as part of BT Sport's coverage of Man City's 2-0 win away to Brighton & Hove Albion on Sunday, Gerrard said that Coutinho should "give the club another year".

Soon after the press conference, reports emerged that Coutinho had handed in a transfer request.

He fumed: "I don't make the decision".
