Southampton took a 1-0 advantage over Liverpool in the first leg of the EFL Cup semi-final, but the Reds were able to get Philippe Coutinho back into action.
James Milner also returned, in a starting role, after shaking off a minor calf complaint. Coutinho, meanwhile, came on for the final half hour of the match and had an immediate impact on what was a previously ineffective attack. The Brazilian's return should see his compatriot, Roberto Firmino, shift back to the central role of a false nine formation going forward, but, as much as Jurgen Klopp would like to name Coutinho to his XI this weekend against Manchester United, the manager may ease the playmaker back with another role from the bench. With Sadio Mane off to AFCON, we should see a front three of Firmino, Coutinho and Daniel Sturridge in the coming weeks with Divock Origi another option. Jan 12 - 6:01 AM
