Sports Watford Deny Liverpool in Injury Time to Secure Thrilling Draw

Jordan Henderson will look to lead Liverpool into a new era of success

Just before the half-hour mark, Mane reminded Liverpool of their stylistic identity by picking up possession, passing to Alberto Moreno, dummying for Emre Can and moving to receive the ball in a decisive position.

Barca manager Ernesto Valverde is under pressure to recruit a top-level replacement for former left-wing star Neymar, who last week joined Paris Saint-Germain in a world-record £200 million deal.

How did the Liverpool players perform during their clash with Watford?

Philippe Coutinho doesn't want to play for Liverpool again.

Klopp's comments on the Coutinho situation were oddly cryptic, however.

Mohamed Salah is to make his competitive debut for Liverpool against Watford in their opening fixture of the new Premier League season away at Vicarage Road. "Barcelona are a great club and I do not think there are many who say no to Barcelona".

Liverpool launched their PR offensive at the same time as Sky Sports News reported a member of Coutinho's family had released a statement stating the player's case.

"Philippe has tried very hard to find an amicable solution to this situation but to no avail", the source told the Mail.

Scotland worldwide Andy Robertson, acquired from Hull for £8 million, may be the answer to Liverpool's problems at left-back, while young striker Dominic Solanke arrives from Chelsea with glowing reports of his potential.

Barcelona's follow-up bid came after the Merseyside club first rejected a £72m offer for the Brazil global last month.

Mahrez has been a success during his three years at Leicester, helping them win promotion to the top-flight in 2014 before then proving key as they lifted a shock Premier League title in 2016.

Watford limped over the line last term, having plummeted from 10th to 17th within the blink of an eye, losing their final six games of the season.

August will be a key month for Liverpool, as they face Arsenal in the Premier League as well as a two-legged Champions League qualifier against Hoffenheim, but Klopp is raring to go. He was not in training since last Friday. "So, no, he is not available and is also a doubt - if he is not available for Saturday - for Tuesday, unfortunately". That's how life is.

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