The Brazilians completed a move to the Catalan giants in the January transfer window, which was a club record fee for the LaLiga outfit.
However, the Reds have fared fine on their own as they are still in the UEFA Champions League and are currently third in the Premier League standings.
"We work for each other, they didn't change attitude and they were smart enough to use Phil in a specific moment and now they use each other in a specific moment," Klopp was quoted as saying by the Mirror.
“There was on example of a bad game from us when we gave all the responsibility to Phil and it was Tottenham away. We cannot do that any more, it makes us a little bit more unpredictable with us on the pitch.
“Phil Coutinho was a very dominant player in our game and when we were not at our best it was always a good idea to give him the ball.
“But it was always clear when Phil didn't play we had to do the job differently, to put responsibility on different shoulders and spread it between the players.
“You can never be sure it will work but now it is a few weeks ago and I am really happy with the reaction of the boys, they stepped up.”
