Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp has explained why he didn't feel it necessary to reinvest some of the £142m received for Philippe Coutinho in January.

And Klopp is prepared to give 26-year-old plenty of time to settle into life on Merseyside after a stop-start campaign so far. Following his debut victor over Everton, the Dutchman played 90 minutes in both shock defeats at the hands of West Bromwich Albion and Swansea City.

"Our defending is different to Southampton or Holland so it makes sense that [he] gets used to it".

Metabolism study signals more trouble ahead for polar bears
Meanwhile, the most recent polar bear population estimate by USGS also indicated almost 40 percent decline over the past decade. Polar bears rely nearly exclusively on a fat-rich diet of seals, which are most efficiently hunted from the surface of sea ice.

While record-signing Van Dijk is still working his way back to full fitness, Clyne is still yet to feature for Liverpool this term after suffering a back injury during pre-season in July. Swansea was good defensively, we were really good against Swansea and he was involved in the three biggest chances we had, his header and then two passes, one for Mo [Salah] and one for Roberto [Firmino]. West Brom was a bad game for the whole team, then it made sense to rotate.

He told reporters: "It was a purely physical thing".

Carragher said on Sky Sports on Thursday that he expects Van Dijk to become a key player for Liverpool, but he still has some adjusting to do at his new club.

Manchester City withdraw interest in Leicester's Riyad Mahrez
Other reports suggested that the Leicester players were very unhappy with how he conducted himself approaching the deadline. However, it is now claimed City are walking away from the deal as they were deterred by Leicester's asking price.

"It is just exactly as I expected it would be: a few ups and downs". We don't have to wait until then, so we got him in.

Liverpool are unbeaten in each of their last 14 Premier League games at Anfield (W8 D6) - they last went on a longer run in December 2016 (17 games). "In the matches, we have to deliver". They beat [Manchester] City recently in one of the most fantastic games, so they know that in a one-off match they can do it. It's really not a big thing, three games is like not being injured.

The Reds host Tottenham on Sunday in an important fixture for the top-four battle, as they bid to qualify for the Champions League for a second consecutive season.
