The Liverpool players not on international duty missed out on their day off this weekend after new boss Jurgen Klopp made the decision to start assessing them. 

According to The Sunday Times, the 48-year-old coach, who signed a three-year deal on Merseyside on Thursday evening, opted to run the rule over the likes of Daniel Sturridge, Philippe Coutinho, James Milner and Alberto Moreno.

It appears that Klopp has got straight to work in his pursuit of guiding the Reds to success this season.

The German coach will take charge of his first Liverpool game on October 17 against Tottenham at White Hart Lane. 

With Liverpool currently sitting in 10th position in the Premier League table, they will be desperate to leave north London with all three points. 

Key trio 

One thing is for sure, the trio of Sturridge, Coutinho and Milner could all have key roles to play for the club this term. 

Sturridge will be desperate to prove his credentials under the new boss after a difficult year or so. Injuries have disrupted the England international's progress, but there's no reason why he won't be able to fire the Reds up the division. 

Coutinho, meanwhile, could shine under the guidance of Klopp. He has the ability to become the club's talisman, but must perform week in, week out. Milner, who left Manchester City behind this past summer, must use his experience to help guide those around him throughout the course of the season.  

Can Klopp inspire Liverpool to a top-four finish? Have your say below!
