Watford Vs. Liverpool: Hornets Hold Reds To Draw In Premier League Opener

Liverpool XI to face Watford Putting the Coutinho spectacle to one side who does Klopp pick for the Reds' opener

The Brazil global was missing with a back injury, according to Liverpool, although he might not have been in the right frame of mind to play anyway after handing in a transfer request on Friday in light of interest in the playmaker from Barcelona.

Jurgen Klopp claimed Liverpool were wrongly denied a winning start to the Premier League season as Watford snatched a controversial last-gasp equaliser in a dramatic 3-3 draw on Saturday.

Speaking at an earlier news conference previewing the league match at Vicarage Road (12:30 BST kick-off), Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp said the Brazilian would miss the season opener because of a back problem.

'If they don't sell him, then I'm not involved anymore. They've added Brazil U-20 member Richarlison to the squad, and that name alone has me intrigued.

'The only thing is I work with the players I have'. "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". So how does it change something for me?

After Saturday's Premier League draw with Watford, Klopp admitted that he would have to "accept decisions from owners" over the player's future.

Two people were confirmed killed on Saturday evening after a police helicopter crashed in the north west of the town. The controversial " Unite the Right " march was organised to protest the removal of a statue honouring Gen.

And according to the Times, Barca are growing increasingly confident they can lure the 25-year-old to Spain and believe a final offer of £137m will convince Liverpool to cash in.

"You have to ask the club".

Stefano Okaka, Abdoulaye Doucoure and Miguel Britos scored for Watford, while Sadio Mane, Roberto Firmino and Mohamed Salah, with his debut goal, were on the scoresheet for Liverpool. You have to ask them. "A lot of money is on offer but I can't see that Liverpool need that money". "It feels not too good, but we know we can do better and have to do better - that's what I told the boys".

"I think the fans are frustrated and you can understand it. I'm not part of it". It'll be a busy one, as Liverpool has earned a Champions League bid for the first time in his tenure.

"But at the end of the day he's just signed a five-year deal, the club have been superb to him and made him the player he is".
