Coutinho could miss Spurs clash
Liverpool midfielder Philippe Coutinho could miss the Reds' Saturday clash at Tottenham with a hamstring injury. The Brazilian playmaker felt tightness in the muscle in the wake of Liverpool's 2-0 defeat at Burnley last weekend, and was out of Jurgen Klopp's side in the team's 5-0 midweek thrashing of Burton Albion in the EFL Cup.
"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."
Liverpool duo doubtful
Jurgen Klopp has revealed that Emre Can and Divock Origi are injury doubts for Liverpool's trip to Tottenham Hotspur on Saturday. The pair picked up knocks in the Reds' win over Burton Albion in the EFL Cup on Tuesday, with Can coming off midway through the second half having landed awkwardly on his ankle, and Origi sitting out the closing moments of the tie due to cramp.
"[On] Emre, there's nothing really serious in the ankle where he had a few problems in the past. It should, for sure, not be long, but maybe too long for the Tottenham game, I don't know in this moment," the Reds boss said. "It's the same with Divock. It's nothing serious really, but if you have a cramp - whatever cramp it is, there are different levels - you need to have a look at it too. It's not for sure that they will be available."
