Former Liverpool man Luis Garcia, who was part of the Reds team that won the Champions League in Istanbul in 2005, believes Jurgen Klopp must end the club's trophyless run this term.

"If you look at the performances, you can say: "Yes, why not win it", says the Spaniard.

"We have to take the first 20 minutes and how we played before the worldwide break and take it into the next game", said Mignolet.

Eyebrows were raised last month when Karius started in the Premier League clash against Arsenal (with Danny Ward on the bench) and although the former German youth worldwide kept a clean sheet in that 4-0 victory, Mignolet's improvement since reclaiming the starting spot past year makes the adjustment in Europe - in their first season in the Champions League under Klopp - a massive gamble.

'He has been at the club nearly two years.

"I think he's doing a good job".

"In 2005, teams didn't know anything about us until we were in the final".

JURGEN KLOPP will send an SOS to Philippe Coutinho this week.

"At the moment, there is probably also a difference in talent between the two clubs".

"Klavan has not set the world alight as a Liverpool player and, when you're going to the Etihad, you want your back four to be confident and connected and know where each other is". We saw it with Fernando Torres and Luis Suarez, and this time with Coutinho.

"He's been a key player for a few years".

It will be the Anfield club's first Champions League game since 2014, when they were knocked out in the group stage, while their last appearance in the knockout stage of the competition came back in 2009.

"It's true that it's not easy to tell Barca to go away, but the kid has been fantastic because he hasn't said anything". We should give him credit for that.
