Is There a Place for Coutinho On This Liverpool Team?

Raheem Sterling's future remains uncertain

In fact, shining star Phil Coutinho has returned from South America, with teammate Roberto Firmino, but Coutinho's back injury has miraculously disappeared and it appears he'll be available for selection at the weekend.

Coutinho and compatriot Roberto Firmino returned to Melwood on Thursday morning along with the majority of Liverpool's global contingent.

Two of Premier League's top four teams in the current table standing are set to face each other in a crucial match on Saturday at the Etihad Stadium as players return from the global break when they played in the World Cup qualifiers.

Coutinho was desperate to leave Liverpool for LaLiga giants Barca, handing in a transfer request but a move did not eventuate as the Reds reportedly rejected three bids before the transfer window closed.

He scored in a 2-0 World Cup qualifier win over Ecuador last Friday, and also came on during Tuesday's 1-1 draw with Colombia.

"He was in a very good mood and training was even better". Any team would miss him, and those two do not fill me with confidence when he's not playing. "The last seven, eight, nine games last season he played no problem".

There are some who even say that they will refuse to play the game if the company does not revert to the old shader system. The story itself is more cohesive and easier to parse, pitting you against a clear set of bad guys with coherent agendas.

"We have got all the numbers (on Coutinho) from the Brazilian FA - the training, the intensity of the training, stuff like that, and it was all okay". I wish him all the best.

Both clubs have picked up seven points from their opening three league games of the season and both Pep Guardiola and Jurgen Klopp put more of an emphasis on attack, which should make for a great game.

"I chose to leave him out of the squad for City so we can use the extra time for training".

Klopp said: "Maybe a few of you have had a split in a good relationship, with your friends, wife or whatever, and it is not good to think about the time you were split". The German manager wants him to undergo a few more training sessions before getting back on the pitch.

Most of the injuries happen because players play too often.

Sergio Agüero will be hoping to start for City, having been dropped by Guardiola for their last-gasp victory over Bournemouth at the Vitality Stadium. They talked to me and I said no chance. He just wants to develop as a player and with all his talent and skills he has space to do that.
