Klopp: Liverpool priced out of spending Coutinho money

The question has to be: 'Is OK good enough for Liverpool?'

So from that perspective, the Reds are right where they need to be heading into February, sitting third in the standings on goal difference and two points clear of fifth-placed Spurs in what has now become a five-horse race for the top four. Hopefully he can fit right in and when he gets an opportunity, he takes it.

"But if you are second, third or fourth at the end of the season when you look back all three positions are good and similarly hard to reach". Yes, I think everyone knows that but I think it was sensible to do it.

Pochettino is at a loss to explain the contrasting fortunes home and away but says that it was results on their travels over the last two seasons which cost them in the chase first of Leicester and then of Chelsea.

Champion Real Madrid has strangely not boosted their squad to help their crumbling campaign, with coach Zinedine Zidane saying he did not want new signings despite his side sitting in fourth place an embarrassing 19 points adrift of Barca.

That Liverpool have only managed to win one trophy since Hamann's departure in 2006 does not sit well with the former Bayern Munich man.

There was a theory that he was signed as the natural heir to central midfielder Andres Iniesta, who will turn 34 this year, but that may not be the case with Barca often deploying a 4-4-2 system this season.

Jamie Carragher suggested the £75 million defender could "lose a bit of weight" after failing to build a regular run of games for his new employers.

Klopp has explained the reasons behind that decision though after revealing that asking prices soared when Liverpool came calling.

"They have the most similar game to City, not the same but similar".

"Going back to my time, we gained a lot of confidence from these cup competitions".

"He is still a new player but you can not train in a Premier League match so we need to use the time between the matches and in the matches we have to deliver".

The 26-year-old arrived from Southampton in a £75m deal, having played just 13 games for the Saints all season. They beat [Manchester] City recently in one of the most fantastic games, so they know that in a one-off match they can do it.

"Nothing. Wow. I'm sure Jamie needs to lose a little bit of weight".
