Coutinho back for Reds

Philippe Coutinho has given Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp a boost by suggesting he will be available for Sunday's game with Southampton after suffering a dead leg in Monday night's victory over Watford.

“The injury is much better,” he told the club's official site. “It was a hard tackle and what happened was a dead leg. It caused a lot of pain in the area I was hit, but the pain has reduced now. 

“At the moment, I am feeling very well – the first couple of days were the most painful. Of course, when you have to come out of such an important game like this one, and when you leave that early, it frustrates you, but thanks to God it was nothing major – just a strong tackle. 

“It was nothing too serious and the main thing was we won the game and we left the match very pleased and happy because the result was very good for us. The main thing was for us to come home with the three points.”
