Coutinho could miss Liverpool’s trip to Tottenham
Could the injury news get any worse?
No sooner had we regained our composure after learning both Divock Origi and Emre Can were major doubts for our game against Spurs on Saturday, we’ve now just found out that our wondrous Brazilian Philippe Coutinho also has serious question marks looming over him.
“The muscle was a little stiff,” Klopp said. “He felt something so we didn’t want to take a risk (against Burton).
“We left him out of training until now. We have to make a decision on Friday with what we can do with him. It is not a situation to take any risk. We have to talk to the player.
“From the medical side, it is not a big issue, but it was big enough to leave him out of the squad for Burton.”
In slightly brighter news, Sadio Mane is almost certain to start after being a surprise inclusion against Burton, while Gini Wijnaldum is also expected to come back into the side.
“We still have options, Klopp added.
“Adam Lallana can play there, Roberto Firmino can play there, Sadio Mane is back and he can play there…. on the wing if you want!”
If Coutinho is injured, who would you start on Saturday? Let us know…
