Klopp had good chat with Coutinho

Klopp had good chat with Coutinho

With Manchester City failing to bring in cover at centre-back, Kompany's presence in the team is even more important, but the defender could be a doubt to face Liverpool at the Etihad.

In short, Liverpool won't be given the freedom to attack at will as they did against Arsenal, but tactical flexibility hasn't always looked Klopp's strength in his time with the club so far.

Manchester City kicked off their Premier League season with a 2-0 win over Brighton at the Amex Stadium.

City, who also have seven points, have match-winners everywhere though, even if they will be without former Liverpool forward Raheem Sterling who was sent off for over-celebrating a last-gasp victor against Bournemouth last time out.

Liverpool have collected seven points from their opening three matches to sit second in the table and spark talk of a possible Premier League title challenge.

Celtic v Paris Saint-Germain
It was a great performance by them. "It was the ideal match, the match we had to play here to get the three points". We fancy them to take that momentum and get a little bit of revenge on Juventus in the first round of group games.

Goalkeeper: Simon Mignolet was rested for the 4-0 win over Arsenal before the global break but the Belgian worldwide is fully expected to be recalled this weekend with Loris Karius dropping back to the bench. Klopp rested Simon Mignolet against Arsene Wenger's side, but is still likely to start the Belgian goalkeeper ahead of Loris Karius against City.

How Klopp re-integrates the wantaway midfielder into his squad could define Liverpool's season.

The Brazilian was also the subject of intense transfer speculation throughout the summer with Barcelona seeing several bids for him rejected by the Reds.

The playmaker made a miraculous recovery from an apparent back injury to play for Brazil during the worldwide break so he is match-fit and he took part in full training today, however, Klopp has no reason to rush Coutinho back in to the starting eleven.

City are favourites for this one, but with both teams unlikely to want to cede early ground to their rivals, I think Liverpool can keep that unbeaten record going, and get at least something at the Etihad.
