Soon after the press conference, reports emerged that Coutinho had handed in a transfer request and, although initially Liverpool insisted that was not the case, it is understood they have now received one from the player.

Coutinho emailed a transfer request to the club on Friday after Liverpool's owners, Fenway Sports Group, issued a strongly worded statement saying the midfielder would not be sold in the transfer window.

In a statement on yesterday, the club's owners said its "definitive stance" was that "no offers will be considered".

"I can not say a lot about it", he told Sky Sports when asked about the Brazilian. In an instant, Emre Can plays it through on goal for Mane, who composes himself and angles a stunning finish into the top corner of the net.

Lynch was gone from the locker room by the time reporters arrived. "You do your thing". "So, it's a non-issue for me". I missed a long one to Jaron (Brown ) and wanted to kind of redeem myself. "I've got to wait until next week".

"I think Jurgen Klopp's got it under control, I think FSG have got it under control, and they're the key", he explained.

Senegal global Mane equalised for Liverpool in the 29th minute after a delightful interchange with Emre Can before unleashing a shot to the top-right hand corner.

Serving an FA ban due to his misconduct charge with relation to betting, a club-less Barton was speaking to Talksport radio today ahead of Liverpool's opening Premier League fixture against Watford.

"It's a similar situation to Luis Suarez, where he put in a transfer request and was made to stay by FSG at that time, but you always felt he'd only be at the club for 12 months". He said: "I think Philippe Coutinho could well still be at Liverpool at the end of the transfer window".

If an investigation begins, the USA government could seek remedies either through the World Trade Organization or outside of it. The officials said that matter, and the trade issue, are not linked.

As well as being unavailable for Liverpool's league campaign-opener at Vicarage Road, Coutinho is a doubt for Tuesday's Champions League qualifying play-off first leg against Hoffenheim in Germany.

The visitors pulled themselves back into the game and bagged their second from the penalty spot ten minutes after the break.

"It was an away game as the first game against a physically really strong side", he told Sky Sports.

"We spoke about it at half-time and second half was much better". Asked whether he was upset with Coutinho's conduct, the manager said: "First of all, if I would be upset with the player, I would tell him".

But Arsenal entered the match with a dismal record of one win, three losses and three draws in their last seven season openers. No, I'm just myself. "But at some stage I opened the door for him because I knew that I had many strikers".
