Wenger: Sanchez Is Ready To Play

Jurgen Klopp stressed Liverpool have done all they can to make signings in this window and admitted there could be more activity at Anfield before next week's deadline.

The manager finished his presser with one final word for current Premier League leaders Manchester United.

"Now Liverpool know they're in the Champions League, I expect a busy week of transfers at Anfield".

Arsene Wenger will be boosted by two of the team's most important players. "We can't just concentrate on him".

The forward is expected to depart the United Kingdom to join up with his Chile global squad shortly after Sunday's crunch tie at Anfield, and surely if he is fit enough for his country, he should be fit enough for us. "If you are concentrating too much on [Sanchez], then - 100 per cent - Mesut Ozil will show up", he said. It's high intensity, high quality, they're really good.

"It's always hard because you want your players to be happy, but players have contracts as well". I'm happy at the moment, will I be happy on the 31st? I'm not even sure that Barcelona are in for him.


Liverpool will again be without attacking midfielder Philippe Coutinho who has not yet recovered from a back problem.

Today, Daily Star have come up with an exclusive report that the 24-year-old England global is still interested in staying with the Gunners but he is only ready to agree a four year deal worth 40 million pounds ($51.5million).

"He's on our injury list, that hasn't changed", Klopp added.

"I think what hurt him a lot was to miss the cup final". We had a nice sign last night - the first 20 minutes were probably part of the best pieces of football I was ever part of.

"It is the first game we lost since the beginning of April and we feel we should have largely won this game". Rather than choose between the two, he fudged the issue and while Arsenal dominated the game in general, the lack of stability was evident in the goal they conceded early in the second half. From Michael Thomas in 1989 to Georginio Wijnaldum in 2017 via Robbie Fowler's four-minute hat-trick and Andrey Arshavin's four in one game - and far too many other great moments to list - it has simply never been tiresome. "Now we can start the preparation".
