And Kop chief Klopp left his star out of Saturday's game at Manchester City in which Liverpool were thrashed 5-0.

Coutinho missed Liverpool's start to the season with a back problem but managed to appear for Brazil during the worldwide break. If you want to blame me for the decision (not to play Coutinho) then no problem.

"I'm not sure it's that easy but if it's that easy it's cool, I have only to bring Phil in and everything is good again", he said.

Barton was criticizing Klopp's decision to start Ragnar Klavan at the expense of Dejan Lovren, who played in their recent 4-0 win over Arsenal.

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp says that Philippe Coutinho will be considered for selection for the first time this season, with Liverpool facing Sevilla at Anfield in the Champions League on Wednesday night. Yes, we've scored more often.

Senegal global Mane, who will serve a three-match domestic ban after receiving a direct red, is likely to feature in the mid-week game while Brazilian playmaker Philippe Coutinho could make his first start of the campaign. He came back long flight, 15 minutes here, 15 minutes there, three weeks without training. "You cannot play these passes better, you have only to make a little more of it. [Coutinho's] a fantastic player, that's really good, hopefully we can use him as quick as possible, but that's how it is".

Sevilla forward Manuel Agudo "Nolito" has suffered a right thigh injury and will be sidelined in Wednesday's Champions League football match against Liverpool, the Spanish club announced Monday.

Goalkeeper Mignolet said: "We have to take the first 20 minutes and how we played before the worldwide break and take it into the next game".
