Coutinho is in line for a start against Manchester City tomorrow after an impressive return to Liverpool training.
Jurgen Klopp lauded the Brazilian’s Melwood form during his press-conference yesterday, indicating that Phil will at least make the bench at the Etihad.
The no.10 was snapped smiling and laughing with Alberto Moreno in the day and boarded the PR train on the way out – waving to photographers and making funky hand signals to boot!

Of course Coutinho will be disappointed about what happened during the summer, for multiple reasons. Not only has he missed out on a move to Barcelona, but he’s damaged his reputation with a fanbase who adored him.
Now, he’ll be on a mission to get back in the side and get people talking about his football again.
We’re sure that once he curls in a trademark long shot, Anfield will be singing his name once more.
