Jurgen Klopp has made four changes from the first 11 in the 3-3 draw at Arsenal, with Gini Wijnaldum replacing the injured Jordan Henderson, Trent Alexander-Arnold rotating in for Joe Gomez with Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain switching with Sadio Mane. It is a tough place to go - the way they play their football, the way they press, the high intensity that they work at.
The first half was littered with occasional flurries of attacking play, but Coutinho's moment of magic was the only moment the crowd were able to rouse themselves from their Boxing Day hangovers.
Liverpool could even afford top-scorer Salah's radar to be off with two chances in the second half as academy graduate Alexander-Arnold smashed home a half-volley off the underside of the crossbar at the Kop end. I think the first three goals were from counter-pressing situations, that's good and it looks like when you see the result is 5-0 that it was an easy game but it wasn't an easy game. I'm really happy with what we learned from the game.
"I know that people are often not patient enough as it's all about results".
"But I have to stay serious with a lot of games to come".
The Welsh outfit side are now five points from safety at the bottom of the table, having accumulated just 13 points off their opening 20 games.
Mistakes from Joe Gomez and Simon Mignolet allowed Arsenal to overturn a 2-0 deficit before Roberto Firmino needed to rescue a point. It's hard when the game is going like that but you have to face up to it and take responsibility.
"Length of time [on their returns], actually I have no idea to be honest - but it won't be tomorrow", Klopp added. "You look at their front players and the amount of goals they score, it is right up there with the best forward lines in the Premier League", said Britton.
Leon Britton expects to remain in charge for Swansea City's match away to Watford on Saturday and has called for the club to urgently reinforce the squad in January.
