Jurgen Klopp urged to ask Liverpool owners for another January signing

"There are a lot of games to play, a lot of big challenges waiting for us and we have to be ready", he added.

Despite his inconsistent form and the way that he continues to divide the Liverpool fanbase, Can is an important player for Jurgen Klopp and pretty much the only defensive minded midfielder at the club.

It isn't just the hosts, however, looking to give their season a lift tonight with Liverpool having been knocked out of the FA Cup by West Bromwich Albion last weekend, five days after suffering a shock 1-0 loss at bottom club Swansea City.

Ragnar Klavan and Adam Lallana have not recovered from muscle injuries.

"We could have won these games [against Swansea and West Brom]".

It was not about us creating chances. "We need all the boys and I think Hendo did well when he came on, like Millie did".

'We need results to reach our targets, we know that, but the solution is not out there in the transfer market in this moment.

"In the short-term, I don't think we will do a lot". Two weeks ago we had an 18-game unbeaten run and then you lose twice and everything feels different.

If the two managers are to be believed, the stage is set for an almighty scrap in front of the live BT Sport cameras.

In the wake of Coutinho's departure, Liverpool produced a stunning attacking display to beat Manchester City 4-3 at Anfield, the Sky Blues' first Premier League loss of the season. But Jurgen Klopp has indicated the club's spending this month is over, warning reporters last Friday [27 January] not to expect any late deals ahead of Wednesday's [31 January] transfer deadline.

Despite spending £75m on Virgil van Dijk - a world-record for a defender - to sign him from Southampton, Liverpool have conceded eight goals in the four matches since he arrived.
