Klopp said the Brazil global, who was linked with a move to Barcelona following the departure of his compatriot Neymar to Paris Saint-Germain, was in "a good mood" after returning to Merseyside following worldwide duty.

Liverpool's Sadio Mane had his three-match suspension for a red card received for a high challenge on Manchester City's Ederson upheld on Tuesday, after the FA rejected his claim of excessive punishment. Indeed, Manchester City have recorded an impressive average possession rate of at least 55% in all 40 of the 46-year-old boss' matches in the Premier League so far.

Coutinho is yet to play this season for Liverpool, which faces Manchester City on Saturday.

"Roberto played in the second game a little bit longer, but both are fit so that's cool, they're healthy so now we have to see". Guardiola repeatedly dismissed suggestions the Argentinian would be sold last season but a belief he may not be completely happy persists. I think Liverpool will come and have a go, so that will suit us.

While City fans will be over the moon with joy at this ruthless display from their players, Liverpool supporters will be scratching their heads in disbelief at just how much can go wrong in the space of merely two weeks.

A lot has been made about Sergio Aguero and Gabriel Jesus's apparent inability to play with each other with each having been left out of the starting eleven a bunch of times while the other has received the nod.

One of those, midfielder Guido Pizarro, insists that result in Basle two years ago has no bearing on this game for either side.

City were enduring one of those seasons which would become all-too familiar to their fans as they were knocked out of Europe and out of the League Cup (by fourth division Bury) by early October.

"I have been a City supporter since the 1980s so you certainly won't catch me complaining about the talent we have at the club now".

Asked if Anfield was a place to fear, the former Argentina worldwide said: "I think it is the opposite".

"It was clear it was not the most easy time, but that's the transfer window". It's absolutely no problem and I'm completely fine with the situation. "And he played twice - I think about 15 or 20 minutes", said Klopp.
