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.

The Brazillian midfielder who requested to leave the club durring the summer transfer window to Barcelona missed the start of the season due to injury and also the defeat to Manchester City as a result of the extended training and recovery time he was given after the worldwide break.

Fellow keeper Mignolet said: "I've had it before when you have to jump into people's feet - and you have to be fearless". If people blame me for this, no problem, but it was a decision taken for the season.

Liverpool are eager to put behind the heavy Premier League loss to Manchester City and bounce back during their Champions League game against Sevilla on Wednesday, goalkeeper Simon Mignolet has said.

Gerald Pique and Luis Suarez got their names on the scoresheets in the 87th and 90th minutes respectively making it 5-0. Our opposition this evening are our local rivals Espanyol with Barcelona looking to make it 3 wins out of 3.

Liverpool return to Champions League action later this week in their opening Group E tie at home to La Liga outfit Sevilla.

"Phil is a fantastic player, and hopefully we can use him as quickly as possible". He came back long flight, 15 minutes here, 15 minutes there, three weeks without training. The first half, we didn't play like we wanted to, we were 60-70 per cent.

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.

Klopp cited Coutinho's lack of training and involvement with Brazil as the reasons why he saw fit to rest him against City but is primed to call on the playmaker for the first time this season against the Andalusians, who will be looking to capitalise on the Reds' Manchester malaise.
