Champions League to test coach Klopp's progress

- Klopp says Coutinho is available for selection in the Champions League this week.

Egypt winger Mohamed Salah missed Liverpool's training session on Tuesday due to illness, one day before the club host Sevilla in their opening group-stage game of the European Champions League.

Georginio Wijnaldum will be among those looking to improve on an abject display in Saturday's 5-0 loss to Man City, with the Dutchman in poor form at Anfield.

Effectively, Mane has been banned for more than three and a half matches following an incident in which he showed no malicious intent and that seems very harsh to me.

"We have to look forward to the next game, forget that result and play like before".

Attack: Philippe Coutinho is being tipped to make his comeback in what will be his first appearance in a Liverpool shirt since failing to force a move to Barcelona during the summer transfer window.

"Phil is a fantastic player, and hopefully we can use him as quickly as possible".

The players who guided to Liverpool to their five iconic wins in Europe's top tournament are living legends and while it might be asking too much for Klopp's current team to win the Champions League this season, I feel they can do well.

As claimed by Don Balon and reviving a story that has been floated at least twice already over the past month, Barcelona have sent word to Coutinho via his agent that if the player can resist Liverpool's efforts to cup tie him hey will return to sign him in January.

Mohamed Salah is a minor doubt after being sent home from training today with a sore throat but Klopp has suggested the Egyptian worldwide should be fit to start against Sevilla.
