Liverpool's week has gone from bad to worse courtesy of a 1-1 draw with Burnley at Anfield on Saturday.
"I think Coutinho had a really good game, and a big impact on the game", said Klopp.
"Maybe the best game we played against them was the first game when we lost 2-0: we were really strong in this game, had the ball all the time and they still scored twice".
Emre Can of Liverpool celebrates scoring his sides first goal during the UEFA Champions League Qualifying Play-Offs round second leg match between Liverpool FC and 1899 Hoffenheim at Anfield on August 23, 2017 in Liverpool, United Kingdom.

Vols Look For Another Breakthrough Against Florida

"He needs rhythm. We didn't want to change him, it looked a little bit confused when we brought the subs on because I asked him and it was a thumb up".
"Unfortunately, I still don't feel any positivity in this moment. For me, that is the No.1", explained the German manager.
Klopp's frustration was in stark contrast to Dyche who, having seen his team collect just seven points away from home all last season, has now seen them garner five points from their first three away games - tricky visits to Chelsea, Tottenham and Anfield.
Crystal Palace had 65% possession at Turf Moor last weekend, producing 23 shots on goal, and it was arguably the ideal conditions for the former Charlton Athletic striker to step in to following Tom Heaton's injury ahead of a trip to Merseyside. It's not going to happen.
"It's nearly subliminal at times". As one of the only players to prove a real threat against Manchester City before his early substitution from the game, Salah has already shown his standard, but now has the challenge of maintaining this level for the remainder of the season.
