Philippe Coutinho will MISS Liverpool clash with Man City because of back injury

The Premier league’s most complicated transfer saga involved the Brazil star being ruled out with for Liverpool’s first three league games with a stress-related back injury and then scoring for Brazil.

Jurgen Klopp has stood by the story that the Anfield hero is nursing a genuine medical problem – and not just biding his time before a last-gasp Barcelona move.

The German needs his best team out for Saturday’s early kick-off against Pep Guardiola men’s but has admitted his star playmaker could return to the missing list.

Klopp said: “Nothing else to say, actually, so he’s back and we had a really good conversation, so good.

“It’s of course different because Phil, I know what people think, but Phil had the back problem a few weeks ago and couldn’t train so that means he missed around about three weeks.
