Klopp: Firmino getting more credit after Coutinho exit


Klopp said, according to the Guardian: "When I came in I said immediately that I was happy Roberto was here".

Salah has enjoyed an outstanding first season back in the Premier League with his goal against Porto in the Champions League on Wednesday taking him to 30 so far for Liverpool.

"He's a very important player and he doesn't always have to be the standout player".

"I know it already we can compete with them, I don't have to look at them", Klopp said.

Carragher noted that Mane was back to his best with a clinical display, praised Salah for a "Messi-esque" goal, and also offered praise to forward Firmino for his performance in a resounding Liverpool victory.

Liverpool Football Club head coach Jurgen Klopp heaped praise on his Senegalese winger Sadio Mane for his prolific performance against Porto in the first leg of the Champions League Round-of-16 fixture.

However, the likes of Manchester City, Real Madrid and Paris Saint-Germain have been more fancied to win the Champions League.

"I accept all of that, but ask them for a little faith". "All the players are really good". Liverpool now sit third in the Premier League table, and tonight face Porto away in their Champions League Round of 16 first leg.

"We are the underdogs I would say".

"The defensive consistency of the team is the key", Conceicao added.

"The stratospheric figures of Neymar and [Kylian] Mbappe blew up the market a little bit and I think we could have got a bigger figure".
