Liverpool will face Spanish outfit Seville in their next Champions League match.

Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp says Philippe Coutinho's absence against Manchester City had nothing to do with the striker's off-season link to Barcelona.

"This has to be the year that trophies start coming back to the club".

But he did play twice for Brazil in the recent global break and rejoined his Reds team-mates in training at Melwood late last week.

The ball traveled an estimated 361 feet, per Statcast's calculations, but needed an extra push to clear the fence in left field. Note: Outfielder Nori Aoki agreed to a contract with the Mets and was expected to join the team before its game at Houston.

As forward Sadio Mane is serving a domestic three-match ban following a nasty clash with Manchester City goalkeeper Ederson, ample room in Liverpool's midfield has since been vacated for Coutinho's return. The 23-year-old has under 10 months remaining on his contract with Liverpool.

It will be the Anfield club's first Champions League game since 2014, when they were knocked out in the group stage, while their last appearance in the knockout stage of the competition came back in 2009. Huddersfield wanted to sign the Welsh worldwide on loan again this season following a successful spell last season, but Klopp's refusal to allow him to leave suggests that he will get some first-team action at Anfield this season.

After tests, a club medical report showed "the forward has suffered a muscular injury to his right thigh" and would "be ruled out of both Wednesday's fixture, as well as Saturday's league clash against Girona", the club said on its website. I will have the situation all the time now over the next three or four weeks. With Phil, we didn't always create more chances against City in the past.

"So we thought "Let's give him three or four days' proper training - and then he's available for us which is good news".
