85% Or 87% - Liverpool Manager Jurgen Klopp Reassures Simon Mignolet

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp has opened up on his side's defensive troubles, following the Reds' disappointing draw at home to Sevilla in the Champions League last night.

With a missed penalty in the first half and a numerous amount of missed attempts, Loris Karius claims that the draw against Sevilla was a disappointing one.

He confirmed the Belgium global is his first-choice for Premier League matches, while Trent Alexander-Arnold could return at right-back. At the end of the season, he will have 85 or 87 per cent of all games I think.

Mohamed Salah's Champions League debut goal with the Reds wasn't quite enough, despite an outstanding performance by the Egyptian forward who nearly snatched Liverpool their first win in the group stage.

This was not the result Liverpool had been hoping for on their return to the UEFA Champions League group stage, but there were plenty of positives from the hosts' perspective.

The Reds have a world class attack with the likes of Roberto Firmino, Mohamed Salah and Sadio Mane to call upon.

On Saturday, in the horror-show against Manchester City, everyone including me were quick to say that Klavan was the weak link in Liverpool's defence and Klopp should not have rotated him in instead of Dejan Lovren.

'There will be moments where he can not play or should not play. "We're disappointed not to take three points", conceded the skipper, knowing full well that a hard job just got that much tougher. "Then probably the bench thought I was responsible for the red card and so they didn't like me too much but it's not a problem".

PHILIPPE COUTINHO will dive straight back in to Premier League action as Jurgen Klopp will reportedly work him into his starting XI for Saturday. Maybe the best game we played against them was the first game when we lost 2-0: "we were really strong in this game, had the ball all the time and they still scored twice". The crowd need to get used to him, but this is modern football.
