Liverpool midfielder Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain is confident the club can cope without Philippe Coutinho following the Brazilian's move to Barcelona. "I have nothing to say about all the rest". "I don't know exactly how the reaction has been after that, but if there is somebody who maybe should be angry, massively disappointed or whatever in this case then it could be the manager of the club, with players leaving. If we do it in this window, I don't know".

Klopp said the Premier League squad was fighting and tried everything to keep Coutinho.

"I knew it would come up again in the transfer window and I knew it would be very hard".

"I can imagine what people have said and written this week and I would think similar if we, as a club, had not tried everything".

Having stood firm and rebuffed all offers from Barcelona for the playmaker during the summer, Klopp and Liverpool finally conceded defeat last Saturday after it became clear that there was "100 per cent no chance" of Coutinho staying for the second half of the season.

"He wasn't ready to do it anymore". Really, it is a normal, normal thing and we have only to make the best of it. "We made that decision".

"You need to be here [mentally]". It is all about the atmosphere in the club. You use the past but you don't suffer because of it. Talks of bringing in Naby Keita breaking his clause of joining from RB Leipzig in summer seems to be hard too as the Bundesliga outfit are adamant to keep hold of him until the end of the season.

"If we do it, it has to be the right decision".

He said: "There was no other option". We will have 11 players and we have played fantastic football without Phil.

'You can not use him if he's not 100 per cent, ' he said. They play really good and if you don't respect that then you have a problem. "I think he suits perfectly the way Barcelona want to play, and have played for the past 20 years", he said. "Gini Wijnaldum. Not everyone thought "fantastic idea", but a lot of other clubs wanted him and we have him". That's how it is. I didn't mind too much people talking because I knew that's what would happen.

Henry ended by tipping the Reds to potentially be the team to overcome Manchester City on Sunday, with the runaway league leaders still unbeaten after 22 matches and seemingly invincible thus far. Hendo is in this moment out on the pitch and is training. 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.
