Liverpool midfielder Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain talks about Philippe Coutinho's transfer

Germany's Julian Brandt March 2017

'Regardless of how much Coutinho agitated, Liverpool could have stood firm, ' Carragher said.

However, with Liverpool only 4th on the Premier League table and not realistic Champions League contenders, it is tough to see Griezmann making the move this January.

JURGEN KLOPP has hinted he believed Philippe Coutinho was ready to down tools to force through his £145m move to Barcelona. Like Sterling, who made a decision, like Suarez, stuff like this.

Liverpool fans will be desperate for this unlikely move to go throughWhat's the story? City like to play out from the back and will always give you a chance, which is why Lallana could be a real difference-maker this weekend.

"There was a moment when we had to accept that".

We'll be hosting a Facebook Live with our chief football writer, Miguel Delaney, immediately after the press conference, and you can get your questions in for him on all things Coutinho, Liverpool and Barcelona to have them answered this afternoon. "I remember some of his runs against one of the senior players, who couldn't keep up with him".

"We have to go with open eyes through this transfer window, you can imagine, but we will not make insane things".

"To be honest, it was 100 per cent clear [there was] no chance".

Focus on Klopp's selection will be just as intense as that on the match itself as the world waits to see how the German adapts his team without Philippe Coutinho. It is not that they say "You've got this but on the other hand we've done this and this and so you can not spend". They're a team that, when our central defenders have the ball, Salah, Mane and Firmino are going to go to take the ball, and of course with Van Dijk now, their build-up will be better.

Klopp admitted that they can not convince "all players" to stay but that they must ensure to show them that "there is no need to leave from the sports side".

"I haven't really even thought about Phil leaving", he said.

"We played against each other a couple of times and he's a fantastic player".

"The boys really do a lot in their rehab situation and, if we have time, we bring them a little bit later into team training so that they can do a little bit more specific physical work".

Arsene Wenger is on the look out for another attacker as Alexis Sanchez is expected to leave this month and Mahrez is seemingly keen to replace him at the Emirates if a deal could be agreed.
