Coutinho was able to rescue Liverpool a 1-1 draw in Tuesday's UEFA Champions League clash against Spartak Moscow, scoring the equaliser in Russian Federation, but the Brazilian admits the team expect much more of themselves.

"We speak about the things we have influence on".

"The modern game is so cruel in many ways, you never really get a chance to build something but he is at a very special club where he will be given that chance and the supporters will give him a chance".

"We all know these boys will score".

But being 100 per cent with where you are when decisions have been made - that's the only way life works, and football is no different. The hard thing in a situation like this is to stay confident. "It makes no sense to criticise finishing, it's about creating".

The Liverpool manager added his voice to the growing crescendo against the proposal which would see the game at The Emirates moved back 24 hours from December 23 with a 3pm kick-off.

Liverpool played out a five-goal thriller at the King Power Stadium last weekend as the Reds edged to a 3-2 victory over the 2016 champions thanks to goals from Mohamed Salah, Philippe Coutinho and Jordan Henderson.

And now the affair looks to have nearly come full circle, with Coutinho telling Sky Sports UK, "Now I'm calm, it's passed".

But they can not win anything without the other six outfield players on the pitch. "As a group, we have to work together to get better defensively because, if the midfielders can help us and the strikers can help us, then as a team we'll improve". "If we can just shore up at the back and not concede silly goals and not switch off then we'll be a big force", said Robertson.
