Not sick and exhausted any more! Coutinho and Firmino rouse Liverpool

Adam Lallana is still out with a thigh injury, Klopp said, "Adam Lallana is better, much better, but is of course no option for the weekend because he is not training".

However, Klopp insisted that his side are indebted to Mignolet, who - after denying Charlie Adam earlier on - produced a stunning save to prevent Saido Berahino tucking in a maiden Stoke goal late on.

However, his anger increased when Stoke scored on the counter-attack with a ball inside makeshift left wing-back Nathaniel Clyne picking out Shaqiri whose near-post cross was headed in by Walters.

Klopp could consider youngsters Trent Alexander-Arnold and Ben Woodburn against Stoke.

Mane's finishing and pace have been key for Liverpool under manager Jurgen Klopp and the team won just one of seven games in January - their worst run of results all season - when the player was at the African Cup of Nations.

To make matters worse, Liverpool could be without the rejuvenated Philippe Coutinho - who has improved hugely in his last two games, scoring two goals - due to illness. But the second was even better as Stoke roared up the field in pursuit of an equaliser.

"After two games for Brazil, last game after injury [he] played Man City, flying immediately to Brazil, played there, in his situation tried to convince the people, coming back and playing the derby immediately".




The Senegal global has enjoyed a phenomenal debut season at Anfield, becoming a key member of Klopp's team and scoring 13 league goals, more than any other Liverpool player. The news will come as a major blow to Liverpool given Mane's influence on the team following his arrival from Southampton last summer.

"We needed Simon Mignolet, he made two outstanding saves", Klopp said.

Hard as it was his compatriot bettered that effort with a thumping first-time 25-yard volley from Wijnaldum's pass.

Liverpool might not be possessed of many threats beyond their favoured front players but boy do those ones have power.

Woodburn's shielding of the ball from Erik Pieters just inside the Stoke area at the end of the first half drew a rash challenge from the Dutchman and although referee Mike Dean had a good look at the tangle, he allowed play to continue.

But Stoke will have a tough match ahead of them. "He feels good, he is on a good way, but the problem with this is it is kind of a shooting muscle".
