A lot of different things.

But Coutinho has issued Liverpool with an official transfer request following the owners' statement that he is not for sale, according to Sky sources. It should be exciting to see Liverpool's new frontline featuring Mohamed Salah, their marquee summer signing in action.

Watford don't have Barcelona calling, and they have plenty to improve upon this season.

Watford finished the season just above the relegation zone.

What was a bit abnormal was how extremely passive Klopp's men were in defence. "We created two or three chances to score and this is the way we have to carry on and play".

The Reds were without wantaway playmaker Philippe Coutinho, who remains injured, and they went behind after just eight minutes, via a headed effort from Stefano Okaka after some dismal Liverpool defending. The other Watford goal started from an attacking throw-in. The club will take on Nice in their tie while Liverpool face off with Hoffenheim on Tuesday.

Klopp suggested the decision was out of his hands as the "bosses will decide".

"He won the penalty and scored a goal even though it wasn't the most hard goal of his life", said the Reds boss. "I had to prepare for a match (watch from 6:00 below)".

Leicester boss Shakespeare: Arsenal defeat hard to take
He has scored seven Premier League goals as a substitute since August 2016; three more than any other player. Both Ramsey and Giroud played big parts in the win for Arsenal , as both ended up on the scoresheet.

"I can't keep players happy".

"As a manager of a football club, I have bosses". 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 am responsible for the whole team, all these players, and I need to focus on the players who are available". I can not say anything about it [the transfer request].

"I can not say anything about it, but I only work with the players I have".

"How can it change something for me?"

"It's a similar situation to Luis Suarez, where he put in a transfer request and was made to stay by FSG at that time, but you always felt he'd only be at the club for 12 months".

The club's expectation is that Coutinho will act professionally and won't let either his team-mates or the supporters down. Sometimes players. That is how it is.

The source said that Coutinho will not be sold and that Liverpool consider the matter closed, and the club's owners have now backed that stance up in a statement.

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