Reds manager Jurgen Klopp admitted: "They didn't create too much with the ball but of course they scored two goals and in a specific situation where everyone will say, "Oh, it was a set-piece", Klopp said.

In a statement on Friday, Liverpool owners Fenway Sports Group said its "definitive stance" was that "no offers will be considered". And if the bosses decide, for example, just in general, if sell a player or we don't sell him, then I have to accept it. Alberto lost the challenge, which can happen obviously - maybe it was a foul or not, I'm not sure - there was a gap open, they played a pass and I thought it was offside, I'm not sure if it was.

"I think everybody is looking forward to the new season", Can said.

Upon submitting his transfer request on Friday, many Liverpool fans disowned the midfielder, but others, including one Steven Gerrard, are willing to give him a break if he ends up staying.

"But I think the bottom eight, nine teams, who will sit back a bit and make them work hard, will catch them out".

Mohamed Salah scored and drew a penalty on his competitive Liverpool debut as the Reds drew with Watford 3-3 at Vicarage Road.

Jurgen Klopp insists he will not become distracted by the transfer saga surrounding Philippe Coutinho, but suggested that the Liverpool star's future could be out of his hands. If you ask early enough, you can either switch the plan of whatever.

In the press conference, Klopp was asked about trying to keep Coutinho happy.

The Coutinho controversy added to Klopp's frustration after Liverpool squandered the chance to claim an opening day victory by conceding a stoppage-time equaliser.

Coutinho did not appear in Liverpool's 3-3 draw with Watford on Saturday as expectations of his departure grew further.

"It was an away game as the first game against a physically really strong side", he said after the match.

Things started with Liverpool posted an official update on the club's website confirming that FSG will refuse to sell the Brazilian this summer.
