Liverpool hit with Philippe Coutinho injury blow

Date published: Friday 27th October 2017 12:40

Liverpool have been hit with the revelation that Philippe Coutinho could be sidelined for up to three games.

Coutinho has suffered an abductor strain in training, meaning that he is ruled out of Saturday’s meeting with Huddersfield, one of our feature games in Big Weekend.

The Brazilian is also a doubt to face Maribor in the Champions League in midweek, while he faces a race to be fit to play against West Ham next weekend.

Jurgen Klopp is already without Sadio Mane and Adam Lallana, and an injury to Coutinho means that his forward options are limited.

Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain could be drafted in as a straight replacement, while Daniel Sturridge is also a possibility.

The Reds have won just two of their last ten games, and must target all three points against newly-promoted Huddersfield to get their Premier League season back on track.
