Brazilian Star could miss Man City-Liverpool clash with back injury

PHILIPPE COUTINHO could be ruled out of Liverpool’s clash with Manchester City with injury despite playing for Brazil during the international break.

Coutinho did not appear in any of Liverpool’s first five games of the season with what the club say was a back injury and then illness, having handed in a transfer request as he sought a move to Barcelona.

However, the playmaker appeared as a second-half substitute on two occasions for Brazil over the recent international break, scoring against Ecuador in a World Cup qualifier.

The German needs his best team out for Saturday’s early kick-off against Chelsea but has admitted his star playmaker could return to the missing list.

Klopp said: “Nothing else to say, actually, so he’s back and we had a really good conversation, so good.



“It’s of course different because Phil, I know what people think, but Phil had the back problem a few weeks ago and couldn’t train so that means he missed around about three weeks.

“Yes, he went to the national team and trained normally, but now we have to prepare for a normal season so we have seven games [before the next international break] and we saw training this morning and thought ‘OK, maybe we should use him immediately’ because he was really good, but that doesn’t make sense.

“We have now to continue with the preseason, not too long, but in a few sessions we have to give ourselves the time because in the next month we have seven games.”



The Kop icon played and scored in the final 14 minutes of his side’s 2-0 victory over Ecuador on September 1 and, just four days later, played 15 minutes in the draw with Colombia.
