West Ham Player Ratings v Man Utd

Can's optimism comes despite reports claiming star playmaker Philippe Coutinho submitted a transfer request on Friday after Liverpool announced it will not consider offers for the rumoured Barcelona target.

The Brazilian Coutinho issued an email requesting a transfer on Friday after the clubs owners Fenway Sports Group stated that the player would not be sold.

Liverpool's season would be destroyed if Philippe Coutinho was to leave for Barcelona, Oliver Holt said on the Sunday Supplement.

That message appeared on Liverpool's official website just prior to Klopp speaking at a press conference, during which he said of FSG's statement: "I think if somebody, in this case FSG, is saying something like this, that is the statement".

"I have a bit [of sympathy] for him, he's not a bad kid". If bosses decide, for example, we sell a player then I have to accept it. "I am responsible for the whole team, all these players and I need to focus on the players who are available".

It is claimed that the Liverpool players fully understand that Coutinho can not say no to Barcelona and sympathise with him wanting to move to the Camp Nou.

"It's always been his dream to play for Barcelona, and the kid is panicking thinking he will not get his move if he doesn't go now".

Hours after Arsenal beat Leicester City 4-3 in a ridiculous Premier League opener, Liverpool and Watford were involved in another one, this time at Vicarage Road, with the Reds and Hornets settling for a 3-3 draw. "I was not happy in the first half with the situation; it was very physical and Watford were too often the winners in these situations", he said.

"I think it (Watford) will be tough, but everybody is looking forward to it, everybody will be at 100 per cent and on fire for the season". "We defended a lot of them really well, but at the end is it enough if we concede one goal? No". So how does it change something for me?

"You have to ask the club". I don't make the decision.

"I don't see any way the club would let Coutinho go".

Coutinho rocked the club after he handed in a transfer request to try and push through a move to Ernesto Valverde's side.
