Midfielder was substituted off early vs Watford
Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp has given an injury update on midfielder Philippe Coutinho.
Coutinho was subbed off early against Watford after suffering a leg injury after a heavy collision inside the first 10 minutes.
The Brazilian attempted to run the injury off but was unable to continue, with Adam Lallana replacing him.
Speaking in his post-match press conference, Klopp said: “He has a dead leg, hopefully it’s not too serious but of course it’s really painful and no chance [he could continue]. Everybody could see he tried hard, but no chance.”
An absolute stunner from Emre Can meant Liverpool won the game and kept firmly in the driving seat for a place in the top 4. Despite a game of few chances, there was a lot to take away from the match, and you can read 5 things we learned from the game here.
