Liverpool manager says Brazilian is intrinsic to Reds' title prospects and happy at the club

Jurgen Klopp says that Philippe Coutinho is going to be a key player for Liverpool in their quest for a first Premier League title.

Coutinho scored a wonderful winning goal as the Reds came from behind to beat Leicester City 2-1 in the Premier League Asia Trophy final on Saturday, and Klopp says the Brazilian’s contribution is typical of a player who rises to the occasion when it matters.

"Everybody knows Phil Coutinho is a key player for us, no doubt," Klopp told "I know that he feels completely more than fine, comfortable, whatever, in Liverpool. He loves the club, loves the city, all that is clear.

"That he is able to play like tonight in a very, very difficult moment of pre-season after all these sessions is good to see and shows his big potential."

Klopp also revealed if Mohamed Salah will be a "definite starter" for the new season, and hailed Liverpool’s support in Hong Kong.
