Liverpool manager Juergen Klopp said his club will not be able to replace Philippe Coutinho in the current transfer window, adding that he needs to use tactics rather than transfers to achieve his objectives this season. "We can stop thinking about it", he told reporters at a press conference held at Melwood in advance of Tuesday night's visit to face a struggling Huddersfield Town side managed by long-time friend David Wagner, per the Press Association.
Coutinho left Liverpool for Barcelona earlier this month in a £146m deal and Klopp's side have lost two of the three matches they have played since his departure.
"Nothing in training gave me a sign that the boys misjudged the success or result against Man City, or the performance", Klopp told United Kingdom newspapers.
"Unfortunately in the moment when Phil left Adam got an injury and that was unlucky but that can not be the reason for getting nervous and going out to try do something".
"We've played two games in a row in which we didn't perform like we can". I don't think Phil would have helped a lot in this situations.More news: US President Donald Trump Sends Message to African Leaders Following "Shithole" Remarks

"Nothing else to say about that", Klopp said.
"After each defeat, if you learn from it then it makes a little bit of sense".
"As long as the player behaves like Emre does, then I have absolutely nothing to complain about", Klopp continued.
Adam Lallana missed the West Brom game with a small muscle tear and could be back in contention for the trip to Yorkshire, although having been sidelined for much of the season, the England midfielder will not be risked if there is any threat of causing more damage.
"If we make a decision, is it for now, is it for the summer?"
