Jurgen Klopp talks about injuries, league challenge, top4 and Loris karius criticism by pundits

The German manager previews midweek trip to Middlesbrough.

On Philippe Coutinho

“I know everybody misses Phil, because of the part he played, but we have to adapt now, we know what we have to work on.”

On what Liverpool should change

"You have to strike back, when I heard about a new record of shooting in the box, that was interesting, that was my feeling. How can you always be used to being in a box so much?

"You do right, you force situations, in other situations we could have done better. We never forced an own goal with a hard pass with crossing in our box. A lot of things for us to analyse but only two days until the next game, so we have to do a few things, make little changes.

"We are still in a good way. It’s our mistake, cost us five points.”

On Loris Karius

“I’m not interested in creating headlines. No time to write what you want, a few things are obvious, a few things aren’t... working with the goalkeepers and other players, that’s all I care about.

“It’s never about one player. I have nothing to say, only because I can’t say in it so it’s useful for us.”

On the title hopes

"I think it makes absolutely no sense to count the points between you and the other teams at this stage of the season. Around in the last 10 games you need to be in a position to fight for something. We are good enough to be fighting at the top.

"Only the good teams can fight for it. If the gap is getting bigger because of our results, it’s our fault. We don’t think about the distance of the two teams.

"It’s all good in the moment. Things like the last two games happen. We are not surprised things like this happen, especially West Ham. Only we can sort it, that’s all."

On January plans

"The winter transfer market is the most difficult. We are always looking. If you watch our bench, very experienced in defence & not offence. If the situation stays like this it is clear we have open eyes."

On Loris Karius criticism

"My job is to protect the players as much as we can, but I can’t do that when they’re on the pitch. I’m not surprised about it. In my first press conference I spoke about English media, and the pundits, the former players, forgot completely how it felt when they get criticised.

"Especially the Neville brothers, the one who was a manager, he should know. He’s not interested in helping a Liverpool player.

"I don’t listen to them. Carra doesn’t speak too much about United players, and the Neville brothers don’t care much about Liverpool. Tell him I’m not on Twitter. If he wants me, Twitter doesn’t help."

On Middlesbrough

"In one moment they are a possession side, in another - against Arsenal and City - they are not. They are difficult. But they haven’t collected 500 points, so we have to use our experience from the last few games, try to do better and win."

On injuries

"The tendon goes over the muscle for Grujic, a tendon injury. It was three weeks, so he’s already on the way back.

"Emre Can was a challenge on Origi, knee on knee. They could both finish training but... I’ve never heard this ligament but already damaged. I’m not sure if he’s in doubt for Wednesday, Everton he will be back sure. It will be cool if he can play tomorrow.

"Lovren was cramp, he told me he wanted to play, but I told him I want to play too and I haven’t been able to for 20 minutes
