Ahead of Liverpool's crucial Champions League game at home to Spartak Moscow, manager Jurgen Klopp addressed a question about Philippe Coutinho's future.

Liverpool, who are fourth in the league, host 10th-placed Everton in the Merseyside derby on Sunday.

"First of all, there is absolutely no reason to think about that; I can not think before each game about a 3-0 lead and then that the other team will come back", Klopp stated.

MEMORABLE MEETING October 2002 would be a trip to Merseyside to forget for Spartak Moscow as they came away from Anfield on the wrong end of a five-star performance from Liverpool.

The Cameroon centre-half was a noticeable absentee at the weekend as the Reds recorded an impressive 5-1 win at Brighton, though the major talking point before kick-off was the makeshit back three Klopp fielded which included Gini Wijnaldum, Dejan Lovren and Emre Can.

Jürgen Klopp has described Liverpool's Champions League showdown with Spartak Moscow as "all or nothing" and believes qualification for the knockout stages for the first time since 2009 would further highlight the progress he is overseeing.

Liverpool need only a draw to qualify but a win would see them top the group. Kombarov joins Jano Ananidze, Artem Timofeev and Georgi Tigiyev on the list of players who are also sidelined.

Spartak have only win six of their last 40 Champions League games, drawing eight and losing 26.

Spartak Moscow require an average of seven shots per goal in the Champions League this season, making them the 12 most efficient team in the competition.

In his last season for the Reds, the South American superstar netted 31 league goals.
