Coutinho is available to play in the Champions League - Klopp

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

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. I'm very, very excited to start the Champions League games at Anfield. Klopp says that he is set for Champions League duty this week.

The German coach will guide his side back to Champions League action for the first time since the 2014/15 season - where they crashed out in the group stages in disappointing fashion.

Jurgen Klopp's side will be looking to bounce back from Saturday's disappointing 5-0 defeat at the hands of Manchester City.

After avoiding Real Madrid, Barcelona, Bayern Munich and Paris Saint-Germain, Liverpool have to be delighted to end up with Sevilla, Maribor and Spartak Moscow.

"That's probably a good thing, the game comes early and we can put things right, change it again".

Gini Wijnaldum is the man most likely to make way with Coutinho playing in an advanced central attacking midfield role and Sadio Mane is expected to keep his place in attack.

The news of his illness comes just hours after he told of his excitement at the prospect of the clash with Sevilla, who beat Liverpool in the Europa League final a year ago.

'I could [give you an idea], but I'm sure all the Liverpool supporters around the world are ready to wait another 24 hours, ' Klopp said.

However, Liverpool could be without Mohamed Salah, who missed training on Tuesday due to illness.
