Reds to check on Coutinho fitness for Spurs clash
Liverpool must assess Philippe Coutinho's fitness on Friday before deciding whether the No.10 can feature against Tottenham Hotspur.
The Brazilian was not involved as the Reds eased to a 5-0 victory at Burton Albion in the EFL Cup earlier this week, due to a muscle issue.
And ahead of the trip to White Hart Lane, Jürgen Klopp explained that no risks will be taken with Coutinho after his training was disrupted.
The manager said: "The muscle was a little stiff. He felt something so we didn't want to take a risk [against Burton].
"We left him out of training until now. We have to make a decision on Friday with what we can do with him.
"It is not a situation to take any risk. We have to talk to the player.
"From the medical side, it is not a big issue, but it was big enough to leave him out of the squad for Burton."
