Jurgen Klopp sends worrying message to Liverpool fans about Philippe Coutinho

Egypt's Mohamed Salah on his Premier League debut with Liverpool but the team conceded a stoppage-time equaliser to draw 3-3 with Watford in a thrilling clash on Saturday.

But the visitors were punished for sloppy defending and missing a string of chances as Britos popped up at the near post to delight the home fans at Vicarage Road, leaving Liverpool manager Juergen Klopp blaming the officials and bad luck. That decide, for example, just in general, if we sell a player or we don't sell him. Asked whether he was upset with Coutinho's conduct, the manager said: "First of all, if I would be upset with the player, I would tell him". There's been times in the past where players have been unsettled and they've gone in and said "I'm desperate to go" and it's ended up happening. "There are a lot of things to work on". That is what I was always doing.

"I don't think (it changes anything)".

"I have said what the club's decision is about this and now you can read it - that is maybe the only difference".

Barcelona has been heavily linked with a move for the 25-year-old and are claimed to have had an offer totalling more than €100 million ($149 million) rejected by the Premier League club.

Rohit and Bumrah, on the other hand, played in the Champions Trophy and were rested for the series against West Indies. Dinesh Karthik and Rishabh Pant, who were also part of the squad in that tour, have been left out as well.

But Miguel Britos secured a point for Watford in the third minute of stoppage-time when he scored from what appeared to be an offside position. Although the frustrated visitors wanted the weird goal chalked off for offside. "We need to show this attitude and commitment in all our games".

"And I'll be part of that riot!"

"There are enough people who can talk about that".

Speaking at his post-match press conference following Liverpool's 3-3 draw with Watford on Sunday, Klopp revealed that Coutinho's future was in the hands of Fenway Sports Group.

The hosts were good value for their lead in Marco Silva's first match in charge but the erratic Heurelho Gomes brought down Salah early in the second half to allow Roberto Firmino to equalise from the penalty spot. With Champions League coming back to Anfield this season, players will have to be on the peak of their fitness, something that is even more essential, given Klopp's propensity to play the high-octane "gegenpressing" style of football.
