Mignolet believes Liverpool can bounce back from City defeat

He didn't have much to do, but his inclusion led to renewed rumblings that Karius could be set to play the Champions League group stage games for Liverpool.

However, one of the key players from their victorious 2005 team insists they can lift the trophy in Kiev next May.

"I'm not sure it's quite that easy, but if it is - if we bring him (Coutinho) in and then everything is great again - then that's cool", said Klopp, defending the reasoning for initially prolonging his absence.

Fellow keeper Mignolet said: "I've had it before when you have to jump into people's feet - and you have to be fearless".

When can Klopp win trophies this year?

"He's been at the club for almost two years and he's been trying to build a team in the way he was doing in Germany". He has been trying to build a team similar to the one he had back in Germany and this has to be the season where the trophies are coming back to the club.

"I think he's doing a good job".

Alberto Moreno is delighted by Philippe Coutinho's continued stay at Anfield, believing it represents a boost to everyone at Liverpool. Both Mignolet and Karius will feel they deserve playing time, but Liverpool also still have Danny Ward, and he needs minutes, too.

"Liverpool are improving and are known in every corner of the world, but they haven't been picking up trophies to match their history", he says. We saw it with Fernando Torres and Luis Suarez, and this time with Coutinho.

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. We should give him credit for that.

"But he is a fantastic player".
