Liverpool weren't close to challenging Manchester City for the Premier League in 2017/18, but they were able to reach the Champions League final before being defeated by Real Madrid in Kiev.

'Gary should come over and tell me exactly how that works. Bring your kids in the Champions League? That would be amusing!

"I don't know what he means by that to be honest", he added.

Goalkeeper Lloris sustained a thigh problem during last month's 3-0 win at Manchester United, which meant he missed the subsequent 2-1 loss at Watford and France's global commitments over the past week.

The £43.7million summer arrival has not featured in the matchday squad since being an unused substitute on the opening day of the campaign as he has been given time to adjust to Klopp's training methods.

"The thing is it is absolutely no problem".

"It's not nice to tell him he's not involved but he's come from another league with a different system, it takes time".

"It is only the job to do sometimes because we have players that work together that much longer".

"If not, we are not going to take a risk because he missed a lot of games and now we have a lot of games ahead".

"But the plan was, and is still, that he will make us better".
