Liverpool media round-up: Klopp's 'love' for Coutinho, says current squad will get chances to impress

J├╝rgen Klopp thinking

A selection of the latest stories in the media involving Liverpool Football Club this Monday morning.

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp is full of praise for Philippe Coutinho as his two goals were the catalyst for the Reds to come from behind to record a 3-1 win against Chelsea at Stamford Bridge.

Christian Benteke rounded off the scoring as the Reds moved to within four points of the Champions League places as a result of their victory.

The win was Klopp's first in the league and second consecutive win in all competitions. Coutinho has been a player who has been under the microscope lately as his form looked to have dipped, but the Brazilian is getting the plaudits from his manager.

Klopp is quoted in the Liverpool Echo, saying: “Phil is a brilliant player and we don’t have to talk about his qualities.

“I’m not interested in what happened before. I have spoken to him, yes of course. But my job is to help him, not to say what he is not doing good.

“He knows the last three games were not perfect but he needs the games. He needs the experience in games to feel what is good and what is wrong. This is the perfect example. The start was not good. But then we came back.”

The Daily Mirror reports the line about Klopp's response to questions about future transfers, and has said he will give everyone in the current squad the opportunity to shine, with the transfer window still two months away.

Klopp is quoted, saying: “I have been here three weeks. Everyone tells me: ‘You want to buy this player and this player’.

“But development is to work with the players you have. It’s like if you have a problem with your wife, you don’t want to change every day.”
