Philippe Coutinho is set to put Jurgen Klopp through a nervy week as he prepares to make his return from injury.
International breaks have emerged as a costly disruption for Liverpool, with key players regularly returning to the clubs with injuries.
Coutinho himself has missed the Reds’ last three games due to a thigh problem, but looks ready to make his comeback within the next few days.
The No.10 will declare himself fit for Brazil’s friendly against England on Tuesday, having continued his recovery whilst on duty with his national team, according to the Mirror.
Klopp will now be on edge as he looks to welcome back a fully fit squad for Liverpool’s upcoming clash with Southampton.
Injuries have seen Coutinho miss large chunks of the season so far, with an apparent back problem during the summer and his most recent knock having restricted him to just eight starts.
That said, he has performed admirably when available and displayed no signs of being distracted after failing to secure a move to Barcelona in the transfer window.
The playmaker handed in a transfer request but saw three bids from the Catalan giants rejected by Liverpool and met with a stern insistence that he would not be sold.
It has since been reported that the La Liga club will reignite their pursuit of Coutinho when the window re-opens in January.
On the bright side, if he does play, the Wembley crowd will be paying for some great entertainment.
