However, they showed character as they called a halt to that dismal run on Saturday and can continue their improvement in the Champions League on Tuesday.Crucially, want-away midfielder Coutinho shone in the win over Leicester and the Brazil international appears to have settled back into the team for now, which bodes well for the Reds considering the difficult October that lies ahead, with games against Manchester United and Tottenham on the agenda.The return of Sadio Mane is also a welcome boost for Klopp’s side, who inevitably struggle in the Senegal international’s absence, and he will be keen to make amends for his brutal red-card tackle on Man City goalkeeper Ederson, which has kept him out of action for the majority of the month.
