Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp says he will "have to accept" it if Philippe Coutinho leaves but expects the club owners to refuse to sell the player.

Boss Jurgen Klopp will be disappointed with Liverpool's result from their Premier League opening match against Watford.

Barcelona is looking for a replacement for Neymar, who was sold to Paris Saint-Germain for a world-record fee of 222 million euros ($262 million) last week.

The Mirror are reporting that Liverpool are already drawing up a list of potential targets in the event that relations with Philippe Coutinho can not be repaired and Barcelona submit a monster offer. If they don't sell him, then I'm not involved anymore. "We created two or three chances to score and this is the way we have to carry on and play".

"I can not change it". "Pre-season is over now and everybody's happy, I think we played a good pre-season and we can go with confidence into the new season. I hope of course that we will win the game, that's the most important thing in the first game".

"We forgot to close the game". So how does it change something for me? I don't know if it was a reaction to the club coming out and making a statement earlier in the day.

At present, Seoul is allowed to possess ballistic missiles with a range of 800 kilometres and payload of 500 kilogrammes. The US military has a huge footprint across south-east Asia and the Pacific, particularly in Japan and South Korea.

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.

"I had no time to think about it today because that's how it is with all other players who are not available", Klopp said of the situation surrounding the Brazilian.

Watford were good value for their lead at half-time and looked comfortable at the start of the second-half, only for Heurelho Gomes to bring down Mohamed Salah and give away a penalty. Although the frustrated visitors wanted the weird goal chalked off for offside.

He fumed: "I don't make the decision".

Liverpool conceded 27 goals from set pieces last season, and two of Watford's goals came from corners.

Coutinho was thought to be against the idea of agitating for the transfer and the club was rocked by his official request to join Barcelona.
