Referee For Hoffenheim May Be Mixed Blessing For Liverpool

Philippe Coutinho is in the news yet again, this time for having seen a transfer request to try force a move to Barcelona get shot down by Liverpool.

The manager said, "Liverpool is not a club that has to sell players".

The 25-year-old, who missed the trip to Vicarage Road with a back problem, is Barcelona's top target to replace Neymar following the Brazilian's world record switch to Paris Saint Germain.

Though Klopp and Reds fans will be hoping that Coutinho stays at the club, it now appears that he wants to move away.

Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp is confident that Philippe Coutinho will not be sold to Barcelona in this summer's transfer window.

Rafa Benitez brought on Jamaal Lascelles and Chancel Mbemba as replacements for the two defenders. Alli kicked the ball away as the Newcastle midfielder bent down to collect it.

"If they don't sell him, then I'm not involved anymore". We have to work on it but for us different things are important, the physicality in the beginning - not ready for these things. "Pre-season is over now and everybody's happy, I think we played a good pre-season and we can go with confidence into the new season". "Of course we knew it before but after this game we have a lot of things to do", Klopp added. In defence an injury to Nathaniel Clyne could pave the way for Trent Alexander-Arnold who will be making just his third Premier League start.

"We forgot to close the game".

"I don't think (it changes anything)".

Liverpool are back in action on Tuesday when they travel to Germany to face Hoffenheim in the play-off round of the Uefa Champions League.

"You have to ask the club".

FSG is pretty firm on not selling Coutinho, but if a bid of over £100 million is received, it might be better for the Reds to cash in on the money and sign Insigne as a replacement instead of keeping an unhappy player.

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

Coutinho is believed to have handed in a transfer request on Saturday (AEST), just hours after Liverpool owner Fenway Sports Group released a statement in which it insisted it would not entertain offers for the Brazil star.

Liverpool conceded 27 goals from set pieces last season, and two of Watford's goals came from corners.
