He added: "I'm not sure it's quite that easy, but if it is that easy - if we bring him in and then everything is great again - then that's cool. You know that this team on their day can surprise you". Yes, we've scored more often. Liverpool are a top club with some of the best players in Europe in their ranks. It was the decision, no problem.

However, Klopp has suggested that Coutinho would not have changed the outcome of the game, as well as indicating that the decision was made with consideration to the club's upcoming fixtures. The Reds did play in Europe's top competition once earlier in this decade under Brendan Rodgers in 2014/15.

"I really think we handled it really well". But if you don't finish the situations you create, then you will always have a problem. "You cannot play these passes better, you have only to make a little more of it. [Coutinho's] a fantastic player, that's really good, hopefully we can use him as quick as possible, but that's how it is". One red card and the rest was history. "We have matches next Wednesday, next Saturday - we play, play, play, so we thought "Let's give him three or four days" proper training - and then he's available for us'".

Manager Jurgen Klopp will be hoping that Liverpool get off to a winning start to their Champions League campaign, but knows that this side will face a tough test against the La Liga giants.

"This has to be the season where the trophies are coming back to the club." .

Klopp denied that this was the case and said, "I can explain it a little - maybe a few of you have had a split in a good relationship, with your wife or whatever, and it is not good to think about the time you were split".
