Has the team from Merseyside missed the presence of Coutinho? One could argue that the team would have suffered the loss based on his contribution to the side, but it seems that Klopp was more than ready for it when the time came. One would have suspected the move by Coutinho when Klopp signed up Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and Virgil Van Dijk.
With the the way that Mane, Can, Salah and Firmino are playing at the moment, it’s a wonder that they need any else at all. Klopp has managed to balance out the team quite nicely, and the responsibility of making great plays has now shifted onto the shoulders of more than one player.
When there are more shoulders to carry the heavy load, it seems that there is no longer a need for a single key player. Klopp has definitely justified the money he has spent on his team of late and we can expect to see them deliver over the coming seasons.
