According to the Liverpool ECHO, Chamberlain said: "I knew what a world class talent Phil is before I came here and in the short time I played with him I saw what an influential part he was of the side".

"Liverpool is no longer the same without you my magical brother", Firmino wrote on social media following his friend's departure to the Nou Camp.

Typically, though, Klopp values a team more than an individual.

There is always the option that Liverpool spend in January, just not on a Coutinho replacement.

Liverpool want to bring in new players but also protect the existing squad.

Since McManaman quit Anfield for the Bernabeu, where he won two Champions League titles, Liverpool have also lost Owen, Xabi Alonso, Fernando Torres, Suarez and Raheem Sterling. It is on a 17-match unbeaten run in all competitions.

They're the type of signing that could come in for money separate to the "Coutinho replacement fund", but help steer Liverpool further on their upwards trajectory until the flawless man becomes available.

RB Leipzig have softened in their stance over allowing Naby Keita to join Liverpool this month.

Liverpool do not believe the sale of vital players will become the norm under Klopp, as it did for him when he was Borussia Dortmund manager.

The former Southampton man was a regular scorer last season and it's important that he can maintain that because neither Georginio Wijnaldum nor James Milner have offered much of a goal threat this season.

The German newspaper say "internally it's clear" at RB Leipzig that Keita can go if Jurgen Klopp gets Liverpool to stump up €95m in total.

Coutinho has been a scourge of City in recent seasons, scoring winners at Anfield in 2014 and '15, and being the driving force behind Liverpool's thrilling 4-1 win over City at Etihad Stadium in November 2015.

Keita will remain in Leipzig colours this season, the German side insist.

The absence of Coutinho this weekend will only help that quest.
