Liverpool boss fuming after set-piece horror proves costly

Liverpool winger Philippe Coutinho has reportedly issued the club with an official transfer request following the owners' statement that he is not for sale.

"I think the difference here is Coutinho in January has just signed a five-year deal, become the highest-paid player at the club", he continued.

Barca, who sold Neymar to Paris St Germain last week for a world-record £200.6m, made their offer on Wednesday having already had a £72m bid for Coutinho turned down in July.

The Reds boss has said that the "timing" of Coutinho's request to leave Liverpool makes it even more out of the question, adding that it's impossible to put a price on the Brazil global because it's too late in the window to try to replace him. I think Alberto [Moreno] loses a really high challenge and there should be another player, then you can't play the pass in behind. "We created two or three chances to score and this is the way we have to carry on and play".

It is claimed that the Liverpool players fully understand that Coutinho can not say no to Barcelona and sympathise with him wanting to move to the Camp Nou. "I work with the players I have - that is what I'm always doing".

"It was an away game as the first game against a physically really strong side", he said after the match.

The new Premier League season has started with a bang! "We worked a lot on them in preseason". So how does it change something for me?

Anfield HQ's Twitter site confirmed the revelation, and now that Liverpool have secured Champions League football for the coming season, they'll want to maintain their top offensive threats for the coming campaigns as they prepare to battle for supremacy season in, season out.

Coutinho has been strongly linked with a move to Camp Nou, with reports claiming that the 25-year-old has handed in a transfer request in a bid to force a move to Camp Nou.

"I have said what the club's decision is about this and now you can read it - that is maybe the only difference".

"I don't see any way the club would let Coutinho go". The Reds will battle Hoffenheim in the first leg of the playoff tie.

Liverpool conceded 27 goals from set pieces last season, and two of Watford's goals came from corners. "We had our moments then we conceded an offside goal", Klopp said.
