How will Liverpool line-up against Sevilla?

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp

Coutinho missed Liverpool's opening league fixtures and their Champions League qualifiers due to a back injury but featured in Brazil's 2018 World Cup qualifying matches.

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp has suggested playmaker Philippe Coutinho will play some part against Sevilla on Wednesday (13 September) and believes he was right to exclude the Brazilian from the side that lost 5-0 to Manchester City on Saturday.

Coutinho was not involved in Liverpool's humbling 5-0 defeat to Manchester City on Saturday.

Eyebrows were raised last month when Karius started in the Premier League clash against Arsenal (with Danny Ward on the bench) and although the former German youth worldwide kept a clean sheet in that 4-0 victory, Mignolet's improvement since reclaiming the starting spot past year makes the adjustment in Europe - in their first season in the Champions League under Klopp - a massive gamble. "He came back from a long flight, after two substitute appearances and three weeks without training", Klopp said in his pre-Sevilla press conference.

But he did play twice for Brazil in the recent worldwide break and rejoined his Reds team-mates in training at Melwood late last week.

Can is no stranger to playing in the back four - or three - and spent most of his early days at Liverpool as a centre-back or full-back.

But are Liverpool capable of winning the Champions League? The first half, we didn't play like we wanted to, we were 60-70 per cent.

Liverpool will return to the Champions League group stages after a three-year absence from the competition and Mignolet said the team were focusing on the positives. "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".
