Klopp insists Liverpool can recover from Coutinho sale: Just like Dortmund

Manchester United are reportedly making a late more for Alexis Sanchez in order to boost their squad for the rest of the season.

Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp insists the club will recover from the sale of Philippe Coutinho. "We have a lot of games to go, and a lot of hurdles to take, but everything is possible". The Dutchman, just signed from Southampton for £75 million, had a dream debut, scoring the winner in the Merseyside derby last weekend. Klopp hailed Coutinho's "professionalism" as the Brazilian secured his dream move.

"I would not like my players, when they see me on TV and read in the newspapers, (to see) the manager talking about another thing like they are not important".

But how Klopp's backline, particularly current fullbacks Joe Gomez and the impressive Andy Robertson, cope with Leroy Sane, Sergio Aguero and Raheem Sterling, will be more instructive for what lies in story for the rest of Liverpool's season. "I think it will be a good game", Guardiola added.

"The records are there to be broken and maybe, on Sunday, Sergio will break that record".

Liverpool FC lost 5-0 to Pep Guardiola's side at the Etihad Stadium back in September, although Mane's first-half sending off contributed to the result.

Before that match against Arsenal in 2004, Ferguson gave a team speech that will ring true for many of City's rivals today.

The so named 'Fab Four' forward line has disbanded, and now Liverpool must prove - against English football's most in-form team - that they truly are greater than the sum of their parts. First, it was a 2-2 draw against Arsenal in the British top tier. Liverpool victory or Manchester City win? We will have solutions, 100 per cent. With the past, use it, don't suffer because of it. "You would obviously prefer to have that front with Coutinho as a No 10". What a character!' But he still wanted to leave, and now he's there and we are still here. The amount of goals he has scored from outside the box is just ridiculous.

Bournemouth have no fresh injury concerns, with former Tottenham Hotspur striker Jermain Defoe, Tyrone Mings and Brad Smith all long-term absentees for the Cherries. I have about 100 different things but it is all those adding up'. Liverpool are nowreportedly ready to off-load him to any club that is ready to meet his valuation of £30m. "It's all about how we react as a club". Manchester United, Chelsea and Arsenal, on the other hand have relatively easier fixtures on hand. "I always have been a big fan, he is having an amazing season with Liverpool".

City had no problem winning at Old Trafford in their earlier matchup, but for Jose Mourinho, there would be few things sweeter than playing spoiler for his crosstown nemesis.
