Coutinho, who was strongly linked with a move to Barcelona in the build-up to the season, has enjoyed his most prolific goalscoring month in a Liverpool shirt, finding the net seven times in December.

Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain has admitted to being disappointed in his own performance despite scoring for Liverpool in a 5-0 rout of Swansea City at Anfield on Boxing Day.

Klopp was also asked if he would make any rotations on Tuesday, specifically in goal, to which he replied, "We will see".

"This year, I don't think that anyone apart from Manchester City and maybe Manchester United are thinking too much about how they can win the league".

"But we will be ready and we will perform, if possible, like against Arsenal but avoid the mistakes we made".

Speaking during Sky Sports' coverage of the game, Carragher said: "I am a huge fan of his". I remember that we lost it.

Liverpool will be keen to bounce back from Friday's result where they were pegged back from a 2-0 lead to draw 3-3 with Arsenal at the Emirates.

Defender Joel Matip could be fit enough to feature after he recently returning to training following a muscle injury while striker Daniel Sturridge has recovered from illness. Either way, it was a statement of intent from the South Wales club that they were here to give it a go, and caretaker manager Leon Britton prowled the touchline offering quiet encouragement to his players, and dishing out team instructions.

It did not take Liverpool long to assert their authority against the Premier League's bottom club.

'We don't talk about [Mignolet] now, it's my job, ' Klopp added.

"We didn't here, but we know already that we have to take the hard way".

"It's a ideal result for us, nobody injured, as far as I know, very important three points, five goals, clean sheet - it's all good".

'We have to perform to get a result as Liverpool. It's important for me [to get amongst the goals]. "Both are out for the next two games for sure".
