Mohamed Salah of Liverpool is challenged by Harry Maguire of Leicester City during the Premier League match between Liverpool and Leicester City at Anfield

Meanwhile Riyad Mahrez has notched the next-best number of assists, 0.36, followed by Lemar at 0.35.

Last week, we covered a report via Bein Sports France claiming that Liverpool are close to signing the Algerian global.

Sanchez was linked with Liverpool before moving to Arsenal in 2014 and could be now available on the cheap with his contract at the Emirates Stadium set to expire in the summer.

"There was no other option". We have incredible players who can score like Mo Salah, Sadio Mane, Roberto Firmino.

'I don't want to sound disrespectful because I really liked him. You miss a person and I'm sure he's missing us - maybe he doesn't realise in the moment when everything is new there! "We only have to carry on".

"I'm a player for this club and I've always said that only the best can play for this club", he told Onda Cero.

Even so, he's a very good player and will need to be replaced eventually. It is at Anfield and we should use that. "[Any signing has to be] right before expensive".

And for Coutinho, he may well have earmarked the Copa Del Rey semi-final on January 31 as his debut for the club - should the Catalans reach that stage.

Barcelona boss altered his tactics a bit since Neymar left for PSG and with Luis Suarez and Messi spearheading the attack in a 4-4-2, Coutinho could be the tip of the diamond with Paulinho, Dembele and Busquets supporting him on the wings and from behind.

Liverpool FC are now preparing for their crunch Premier League showdown against Manchester City at Anfield on Sunday afternoon. Slowly but surely I got my foot in the door and started playing a bit more but I know in football that can change quickly. He is a player of Leipzig. When the move was denied last summer the player and his agent must have expected he would be retained for the year. We know we can beat City'.

Klopp also spoke about transfers in general, with Daniel Sturridge's future up in the air, saying he will never lose sleep about the odd player leaving.

"I've heard some people say I'm not real", said Kevin. It's how it is. "You will probably know before I do".

As we live in a football world of instant judgment, victory over Manchester City, or even a draw, Sunday will see "Who needs Coutinho?" headlines.

Klopp said that Liverpool could enter the market to try and find a replacement for Coutinho, but said they wouldn't make any "crazy" moves as he did not think it was necessary.
