Liverpool midfielder Philippe Coutinho insists he is enjoying life under manager Jurgen Klopp and hopes he can lead the club to silverware.

Klopp was appointed as the Reds manager in October following the sacking of Brendan Rodgers after a poor start to the season.

Liverpool’s form has never really hit the high notes this season and Klopp is still trying to instil his own philosophy on the squad.

The Merseyside outfit, who are priced at 2.20 to win the League Cup, have shown in glimpses what they are capable of but remain eighth in the league with 12 games left to play this term.

The Brazilian admitted that the players are taking time to adapt to Klopp’s high intensity approach but feels it will eventually come good.

The former Dortmund boss has his first chance to win some silverware with Liverpool next weekend when they take on Manchester City in the Capital One Cup final on Sunday.

Coutinho feels that Klopp is going to be able to get the best out of the group of players as they look to express themselves in the showpiece final.

He said: “It feels like we are moving in the right direction under him and we believe we can fight for the big prizes and enjoy some special moments with the fans.

“In training, we are working hard and enjoying his methods, which are helping to make us better players. Our team is playing a high-pressing game and I am enjoying it. With this style there is more freedom when we have the ball.

“We still have responsibilities within the team, but the manager is asking us to play our game more naturally and it is enabling us to express ourselves.”
