In the press conference, Klopp was asked about trying to keep Coutinho happy. No, of course not.

"In football life, it makes sense to be really self-critical and that's what we are of course but in the end, if you do everything on the first matchday, you can not expect perfection". We had two exactly the same chances off set pieces and they defended them with luck.

"The problem here are Barcelona, because they will be saying to Coutinho's representatives: 'It's now or never".

"We have to work on it, but that's our life". These two faced each other a little over three months ago at the end of last season, with Liverpool coming away with a 1-0 win thanks to this memorable Emre Can goal. Physicality in the beginning and not being ready for these things. "We had a very good first half, a good intensity like I wanted", he told BBC Sport.

"Again we talk about set pieces, we need to be better", Liverpool captain Jordan Henderson said.

Asked if Coutinho had let down his team mates with his request, Klopp said: "I am not part of the discussion with the group". But it already will feel better because it's one point and I saw a lot of good things.

Klopp felt he took time to get into the game in the first half, but was pleased with the Egypt international's overall contribution.

The Hornets lead twice through Stefano Okaka and Abdoulaye Doucoure, either side of a splendid Sadio Mane goal after 29 minutes.

Jurgen Klopp claimed Liverpool were wrongly denied a winning start to the Premier League season as Watford snatched a controversial last-gasp equaliser in a dramatic 3-3 draw on Saturday. We passed but couldn't see what we actually wanted.

"It does not hurt, I promise, it's a simple header, you have to deal with those things".

"If they don't sell him, then I'm not involved anymore".

We all know Barcelona have made their interests known after Neymar departed for Paris, but Liverpool have remained stubborn in their approach to not wanting to sell him.

"We don't have too many midfield players in the moment who have experience". That is what I was always doing.

"How can it change something for me?"

"I have said what the club's decision is about this and now you can read it - that is maybe the only difference. It's just like it is".

"I didn't think he would put in a transfer request, if I'm being honest", he said on Friday Night Football.
