Liverpool moving on with Coutinho gone

Liverpool's unnamed January transfer target: Speculating who the Reds are back in for Have Barcelona lost trust in La Masia?

"It was his dream (to move to Barcelona) and there was a moment when we had to accept that".

Coutinho joined the Catalan club last week in a transfer worth £142m, the second-most expensive in the history of football.

"There was no other option; I would say it's a pretty easy answer", Klopp told reporters. Oxlade-Chamberlain said that the Reds played good football even when Coutinho did not play. It's not that there was an open question or something and in the end 50 per-cent pro, 50 per-cent con and then I had to make the decision. It is a massive profit from five years ago when Liverpool, with Brendan Rodgers in charge, paid Inter Milan £8.5 million for the midfielder after former manager Rafa Benitez, then coach of Inter, recommended him to his former club. On Sunday if we have a free-kick 18 yards out (against Manchester City) if someone in the stadium thinks "Phil" that is not too cool.

While the skilful Algerian may not be endowed with Coutinho's unbelievable passing range and ability to dictate the tempo of a game, Mahrez is entering the peak of his career and having spent three seasons in the Premier League, would certainly make an instant impact at Anfield. You lose a player, you buy a player. But it was clear - that's over now so we made that decision.

"It would have been very hard if we say, and we could have done of course with his contract, "you have to stay here". I don't want to sound disrespectful.

"We don't have to replace him", said Klopp.

Coutinho has earned his dream move after distinguishing himself as a world-class attacker at Liverpool but has now left a gaping hole in the Reds' attack.

Randle spent most of the season using his superior athleticism to get the better of backup centers and power forwards as a scorer. As the year has played out, Ingram, Ball, and Kuzma have been earmarked as "untouchables", meaning that they won't be traded.

"When Phil wasn't in the team we still played great football and we have still awesome players who can score goals - the likes of Mo (Salah), Sadio, Roberto".

They are an incredible 17 points in front of rivals Real Madrid - though Los Blancos have two games in hand.

"He wasn't ready to do it anymore".

"Some teams try to sit back against us". 'It's bad for the Premier League because he's one of the best players in the league.

Speaking on Coutinho's transfer, Chamberlain said, "I haven't really even thought about Phil leaving", Oxlade-Chamberlain said, according to Sky Sports. "If we do it in this window, I don't know", he explained.

Asked about City's Anfield curse, Guardiola said: "I don't believe in these kind of things, but of course the last time City won was 15 years ago, so it means it is hard and complicated to play there".

"You know players are different". Always they were a good and stable team.
