Liverpool attacker Mohamed Salah misses training ahead of Sevilla clash

Klopp Coutinho could return against Sevilla

I will have the situation all the time now over the next three or four weeks.

Liverpool return to the UEFA Champions League on Wednesday night to host La Liga giants Sevilla.

The Brazil midfielder, who was the subject of multiple bids from Barcelona this summer, was not considered for Saturday's 5-0 defeat at Manchester City after being told to work on his fitness by manager Jurgen Klopp.

Klopp confirmed the fact that it's Coutinho's back injury that has prevented him from getting first team action at Liverpool. "We have to take the first 20 minutes and how we played before the worldwide break and take it into the next game", said keeper Simon Mignolet on what they intend to do heading into a tough clash.

They both came through a play-off round to reach the group stages of this season's Champions League.

It was unfortunate that the transfer story was played out while the Premier League season was underway and no one believed his "back bad" injury claim that has stopped him playing so far this season, as we all knew it was part of his plan to push for a transfer.

Liverpool will face Spanish outfit Seville in their next Champions League match.

I expect him to do just that and if he shows his desire is as strong as ever on the field, all the nonsense that went on over the Barcelona interest will be forgotten.

He said earlier on Tuesday he was looking forward to the Sevilla game.

"It was a decision made with the season in mind".

"Mohamed Salah missed Liverpool's training session on Tuesday afternoon due to illness", a statement from Liverpool website read. "I would like to win that game!"
