Liverpool manager, Jürgen Klopp, got his biggest win on Saturday since he took over at the Anfield with a 4-1 thrashing of Manuel Pellegrini's Manchester City, who were before FIFA's international break.

But, the German tactician came at a price as his Brazilian midfielder, Philippe Coutinho, was replaced by Jordan Ibe in the 68th minute after a muscular problem during their EPL game at the Etihad Stadium.

The Brazilian had run the hosts ragged throughout Saturday's Barclays Premier League encounter, scoring the second goal and teeing up Roberto Firmino for the Reds' third.

In Coutinho's absence, the visitors went on to extend their lead and secure the points when Martin Skrtel smashed emphatically home late on.

And Klopp provided a further boost for supporters in his post-match press conference as he revealed that he is not overly concerned by the 23-year-old's injury.

The German told reporters: "I hope [he] is well enough.

"He showed not a real [injury], it was a little bit of cramp, he felt something.

"I hope that's all, he will be very important for us, everybody can see he's in really good shape in this moment. I hope he can react well enough."
