"Until January 31 there are a lot of things that can happen in the transfer window, not only with Daniel".

In terms of replacing Coutinho, Klopp admits Liverpool will explore the transfer market for potential new signings, but will not be rushed into reinvesting the £142m.

"I haven't really even thought about Phil leaving", he said.

"My phone has been hopping with messages about it, even from people I don't know", Kevin said.

Asked about City's Anfield curse, Guardiola said: "I don't believe in these kind of things, but of course the last time City won was 15 years ago, so it means it is hard and complicated to play there". "There's a lot of noise around what's happening and that can make things a bit hard".
