Sevilla's Nolito to miss Champions League match due to injury

Klopp stands by Liverpool's failed Mane appeal

Jurgen Klopp's side will be looking to bounce back from Saturday's disappointing 5-0 defeat at the hands of Manchester City.

On why Coutinho did not feature against City, Kop boss Klopp said: "It was a decision made with the season in mind".

As forward Sadio Mane is serving a domestic three-match ban following a nasty clash with Manchester City goalkeeper Ederson, ample room in Liverpool's midfield has since been vacated for Coutinho's return. He came back long flight, 15 minutes here, 15 minutes there, three weeks without training. Klopp says that he is set for Champions League duty this week. "He has been at the club almost two years and has been trying to build a team similar to the one he had back in Germany".

Klopp has been at Liverpool for nearly two years, and reached the Capital One Cup final in 2016, but lost on penalties to Manchester City.

Coutinho has not been involved for the Reds so far this season after being sidelined with a back injury, but manager Klopp is keen on re-integrating the player into his side for the Reds' crucial European Cup tie against Sevilla on Wednesday evening.

Nolito and Johannes Geis are Sevilla's only absentees from their 22-man squad to take on Liverpool at Anfield on Wednesday. He's brought in the players he wanted and this is the time for him to show the team is ready to face everything.

But are Liverpool capable of winning the Champions League?

'When I was here, no one in Europe really knew too much about us until we reached the final in 2005.

On the specific absence of Coutinho's incisive passing, Klopp added: "We score a lot of goals and all the players on the pitch play these passes".
