Klopp Explains How Liverpool Have Improved Since Couitnho's Exit

Ilkay Gundogan snubbed Liverpool transfer to join 'genius' Pep Guardiola at Manchester City

LIVERPOOL boss Jurgen Klopp has revealed he wants to hand Roberto Firmino a new contract amidst his stellar run of form. "And there's no doubt that Mo Salah plays a really good one as well", the German continued.

"They need these situations in the box as Roberto [Firmino] plays different to other strikers, turns and passes the ball, so he [Salah] can not stay there [wide]".

If you view Oxlade-Chamberlain as Coutinho's direct replacement, Liverpool have made a £105m profit and got a player who is more suited to the team's style, as well as being a year younger. The 23-year-old has established himself as Liverpool's first choice left-back ahead of Alberto Moreno and Klopp believes he is mature enough to skipper the Scotland team.

"It's the job of the boys to make sure that we don't show that we miss him". Klopp admits he was unsure how the team would react without Coutinho but is delighted with the evidence so far, claiming there is no longer an over-reliance on one player. If you are that then you need goals from players like this and you want them to score.

"We are here to win trophies and performance has a big influence on that", the Liverpool manager said.

Speaking in an interview with Liverpool FC's website after the game, Mane said: "All the time it's very important because sometimes it's hard, you can't score a goal". But I chose to go with [Pep] Guardiola, because he had the philosophy closest to my game.
