Then, they followed that up by making a £40million deadline day raid on the Gunners for Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain.

It is unclear whether Klopp will re-introduce Coutinho to the squad this weekend.

Alberto Moreno has welcomed the isolated Philippe Coutinho back into the fold with an Instagram post, with Liverpool fans happy at the influence the defender has had on Coutinho staying.

"It's a little bit different [Coutinho and Firmino's situation]", Klopp said, as quoted on Liverpool's official site.

The £215m paid for the likes of Kyle Walker, Benjamin Mendy and Bernardo Silva means there are no excuses for Guardiola after a trophyless first season in England.

Trent Alexander-Arnold was named among the substitutes last time out as he was feeling the effects of a dead leg so the youngster could get a recall at right-back with Joe Gomez the man to make way.
