Sevilla's Nolito to miss Champions League match due to injury

Sevilla's Nolito to miss Champions League match due to injury

On why Coutinho did not feature against City, Kop boss Klopp said: "It was a decision made with the season in mind".

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp has insisted that he does not regret omitting Philippe Coutinho from the squad for the Premier League fixture with Manchester City. He came back long flight, 15 minutes here, 15 minutes there, three weeks without training. He has been trying to build a team similar to the one he had back in Germany and this has to be the season where the trophies are coming back to the club.

Klopp has no doubts about Coutinho's quality but knows they will need more than just the Brazil ace to get them back on track.

"I think he's doing a good job".

"At the moment, there is probably also a difference in talent between the two clubs".

It sits at the heart of Syria's oilfields, once an essential source of income to ISIS , and is Syria's main gateway to Iraq . At the moment, it still partly holds the Deir ez-Zor province, as well as territories near Hama and Homs in western Syria.

"If you look at the players and some of their performances, you can say why not have a go at the Champions League".

Coutinho could be involved when Liverpool host Sevilla in the Champions League on Wednesday night.

Karius had always been earmarked as one for the future by Klopp after showing last season that he was not ready to be Liverpool's number one, and giving him the nod in Europe is, all at once, a massive show of faith in the 24-year-old and putting enormous pressure on the former Mainz keeper's shoulders. With the Champions League back at Anfield, it's very important to keep those quality players. With Phil (playing), we haven't created more chances against City in the past. Huddersfield wanted to sign the Welsh worldwide on loan again this season following a successful spell last season, but Klopp's refusal to allow him to leave suggests that he will get some first-team action at Anfield this season.

"But he is a fantastic player".
