"No timescale will be placed on an expected return date for Gomez, though it's likely he will feature again this season".

"I don't necessarily expect us to score four again [like at the start of the season], but I do expect us to win".

He said: "We are still in the Champions League and I am very happy about in a very hard game - yet (listening to some people) at some point it seems we are already through because 'it's only Bayern Munich!'".

They had never previously achieved the feat against any team in their top-flight history.

Liverpool were held by Leicester City on Wednesday amid a nervous atmosphere at Anfield, but Jurgen Klopp is not unduly anxious. We always play the league and the Champions League is then a little sweet in between and we will go for it with all we have.

"We can't compare with the first game of the season".

"Everything will be fine, and it is fine so far, but we can really expect a lot more still, that's how it is".
