Oxlade-Chamberlain (and the rest of the team) will be looking forward to receiving Manchester City at Anfield on Sunday, and Ox believes this game will go better than the one last September. Yes, I would, and so would West Ham's owners.

In recent months Barcelona have emerged as surprising front runners for the player's signature, with Griezmann being mooted as a potential replacement for Luis Suarez.

Yes, he'll love that he can build an even bigger swimming pool for his kids and an eight-bedroom mansion by the Med. But he was rich, if much colder, beside the Mersey already. I respected I was the new boy and I had a lot of learning to do. With 17 league goals this campaign, he sits second in the goalscoring charts, behind only Harry Kane. It's almost as if Coutinho is no more than a leading actor in his own transfer drama.

On the match itself, Klopp said: "It's interesting to play against City". I try to do my best to help the team win. It was 100 per cent clear, no chance. There is nothing to compare, it is only to deal with the situation. Oxlade-Chamberlain. London is not a bad city I heard but he came here for the football.

"But that doesn't matter at all actually because we've got Salah, ah Mane Mane and Bobby Firmino but we sold Coutinho".

Georginio Wijnaldum scored the winning goal when Liverpool met Manchester City at Anfield just over a year ago and he remembers it well because it was a header.

"It's normal in this business - you lose players, you buy players, you bring players through", he added. We need to show up. It's about the atmosphere in the club.

Coutinho is training at the Ciutat Esportiva and recovering from a thigh injury.

"It's if you lost your leg, do you know 'phantom pain'? We knew how to create superiorities and we didn't give them options".

But he can make do as he played there when he started out in Liverpool.

Until now Leicester have remained adamant that they will not sell arguably their best player, who handed in a transfer request last summer. That's how it is.

Furthermore, his versatility means that he can comfortably change positions with wingers and attacking midfielders, confusing the opposition defence as they can never be sure who is playing in which position.

He said Liverpool 'kept their word', suggesting they had told him he could leave this month, having resisted all approaches from Barca in the summer. However, Liverpool accepted the very generous offer, and Coutinho is now a Barcelona player, but Carragher can't comprehend why his old club let the player go now. So is the risk.
