Liverpool beat Stoke City 1-0 in the first leg of their League Cup semi-final but the win came at a steep potential cost with Philippe Coutinho, Dejan Lovern and Kolo Toure all suffering injuries.

Picking up a win in the road half of the semi-final tie have Liverpool feeling good about their chances of advancing to the finals of the League Cup to face either high flying Manchester City or bitter rivals Everton. The concern coming out of the match will be that three players including their best player this season, Philippe Coutinho, went off injured. Coutinho's replacement, Jordan Ibe, scored the winner but the cost could be high if Liverpool drop points in the League as a result.

Philippe Coutinho has been included in the squad for Liverpool when they take on FC Sion in Europa League action Thursday evening.

Owners of Coutinho will be happy to hear this after wondering what could have been had he been fit for the surprising loss to Newcastle United on Thursday. From a fantasy perspective, the best case scenario is that the midfielder gets 20 or 30 minutes as a substitute to prove his fitness and keep him fresh enough for a Week 16 start against West Brom. Were he to start against FC Sion, then it becomes a question mark for making the starting XI against the Baggies, much like the previous week when Daniel Sturridge started the midweek cup match only to return to a bench role for league play.

Liverpool will have an extra day to assess the status of prized midfielder Philippe Coutinho, but as of Friday's press conference, Jurgen Klopp does not sound optimistic he will play.

According to the presser covered by This is Anfield, Klopp does not think Coutinho will be ready. In his words "he doesn't feel comfortable" and "we can...wait until he is available. Luckily for Liverpool, they are facing an easy opponent on paper in Newcastle United and given their road form, should still be considered a strong bet to take the three points. FPL managers should go ahead and bench the Brazilian though, because if he does feature, it will likely be a truncated appearance. Managers in other formats should be looking at replacement options as there is only one other fixture after the Pool game so waiting to see team news may make it too late to find a viable alternative.

Jurgen Klopp stated in his press conference ahead of Liverpool's match against Swansea City that he is "unsure" on the possible involvement of Philippe Coutinho.

Certainly fantasy relevant news in any format, as Coutinho has been arguably the hottest midfield option in recent weeks. Klopp also mention that he is unsure whether or not Christian Benteke is fit enough to play two matches in short time, referring to the Belgian's start in last night's Europa win. An interesting play in all of this from a fantasy format is Adam Lallana, who has been cementing a role in recent weeks and was once a fantasy stud in his Southampton days.

Philippe Coutinho will have a scan after limping out of the Saturdays’ emphatic win over Manchester City at The Etihad.

Coutinho was superb throughout the late kick-off and a constant thorn in the City side. The Brazilian’s movement, trickery and link-up play proved too much as Liverpool cruised to a 4-1 victory. Coutinho took his tally to 4-goals and 1-assist from his last three games and the South American is beginning to flourish under the new German coach. However, the sight of the 23-year-old limping to the side-lines with an apparent hamstring problem will be a concern. Post-match Jurgen Klopp was optimistic in his assessment of the injury "I hope we got there early enough, it was a little bit of cramp. He felt something. I hope that's all it was because everybody can see that he's very important to us." Liverpool play Bordeaux in the Europa League on Thursday while Swansea will arrive at Anfield in game week fourteen.

Philippe Coutinho made it three in two matches in the Premier League but it wasn't enough as Liverpool dropped a 2-1 decision to Crystal Palace at Anfield.

It was the first loss of the Jurgen Klopp era. Yannick Bolasie opened the scoring in the 21st minute. Coutinho equalized but it wasn't to be as Scott Dann scored late from a Yohan Cabaye corner to give Crystal Palace the 2-1 lead. Liverpool dominated possession 65% to 35% and dominated shots 22 to 9 but the shooting was wild as they only managed 4 shots on target. Palace equaled that number of shots on target and were more clinical with the four that they had and took the points back home to south London.

Phillipe Coutinho delivered two wonderfully-struck goals to guide Liverpool to a comeback win over crisis-ridden Chelsea, 1-3.

Chelsea grabbed the opening goal inside the first ten minutes, but Liverpool completely dominated statistically from there, though it took a last moment strike by Coutinho in the added time of the first half to deservedly level the match. He sent a dazzling curler out of the reach of Asmir Begovic after being teed up by Roberto Firmino. The Reds kept the foot on the gas in the second half and Coutinho struck another curler after the ball was nodded into his path by Christian Benteke. They would put the game, and perhaps Jose Mourinho's Chelsea career, to bed with a Benteke strike late on, set up by a low cross from Jordan Ibe. The Klopp era is now alive and well, and with a fit Benteke and Firmino along with an in form Coutinho, are set up nicely for the time being.

Phillipe Coutinho will not be participating in international duty as the Brazilian looks to nurse a groin injury sustained at some point during the recent Merseyside derby.

Coutinho played a full 90 minutes in Sunday's derby but came away with an issue to the groin area that has been deemed serious enough to keep him out of international competition as Brazil play a couple of World Cup qualifiers. Liverpool are offering no timetable as of yet on his return. In other news for the playmaking midfielder, rumor have recently surfaced that he wants out of Anfield, precisely what the Reds do not want to hear right now, as they attempt to transition away from the Brendan Rodgers era. Coutinho was arguably Liverpool's most dynamic figure last season and if he has lost the passion to play for his current club, it only makes the situation there all the more disastrous.

Liverpool played poorly on both sides of the ball and went down to ten men when Phillipe Coutinho was given a second yellow card as they lost to West Ham 0-3.

This is one the Reds will want to forget as quickly as possible. Poor defending led to the first two Hammer goals, as Martin Skrtel failed to clear a ball effectively and Dejan Lovren simply gave the ball away to put the Hammers up 0-2 within the opening half hour. Early in the second half, Coutinho made a rash sliding tackle of Mark Noble and his second booking saw him off. The attack, outside of a 30 yard strike of the woodwork by Roberto Firmino in the early going, was dormant all day. The Reds will have a fortnight to get things right but no Coutinho in Week 5 will certainly hurt.

Philippe Coutinho hit the post twice and was the player of the first half as Liverpool dominated play at the Emirates but couldn't break through and had to settle for a nil-nil draw.

For the second week running, Liverpool benefited from an incorrectly called offsides that disallowed a goal that should have stood. Other than the disallowed goal, the Reds dominated the first half with Coutinho and Christian Benteke their best players. The second half saw Arsenal regain dominance on their home field but neither side could find the back of the net during an exciting but ultimately fruitless day for both sides.

Liverpool were desperate to begin the season right and they were saved from an otherwise disappointing goalless draw with a late strike by Phillipe Coutinho as the Reds escape with all the points after a 0-1 win at Stoke City.

Christian Benteke and Joe Gomez were handed their debuts from the start and the atmosphere was electric at the Britannia, but neither side had much industry in the opening hour and it could be said Stoke were the better side to that point. The introduction of Emre Can changed all that. The Reds began controlling things and spent more time in the Potters final third but were still missing the final touch. In the 86th minute, with Brendan Rodgers looking set to take him off, Coutinho turned sharply with the ball outside the box and sent an accurate blast from distance that Jack Butland could only get a helpless fingertip to. The result takes the heat off of Rodgers but the Reds need to show a bit more moxie next week at Anfield considering all the talent that has been brought in this summer.

Liverpool fielded a strong XI in their trip to Finland and managed a pair of second half goals to beat HJK Helsinki, 0-2.

While we wait to see the much anticipated debuts for Christian Benteke and Roberto Firmino in tomorrow's final preseason match, today's XI looked much closer to what Brendan Rodgers will have in mind when the club open the season next weekend away to Stoke City. After a rather uneventful first half, the Reds began taking control of affairs and Divock Origi would finally break the goalless affair in the 73rd minute. Only five minutes later, Pool doubled the advantage when Coutinho played a 1-2, then fired an angled shot that took a deflection and smashed the back of the net. As much growth as we witnessed in Coutinho last season, he still has a crack at getting even better. If he can add a few goals to the bevvy of assists he is sure to provide, he could move into the top tier of midfield options with David Silva-type numbers. Another interesting note, Joe Gomez got the start again today and is still has an outside chance of supplanting Alberto Moreno at left back.

Philippe Coutinho missed Brazil’s opener against Peru in the Copa America after picking up an injury in training earlier this week.

Coutinho was expected to start having impressed during wins over Honduras and Mexico but the Liverpool play-maker was sent for a scan to ascertain the extent of his thigh injury. Although the results of those tests have not been revealed his injury is not thought to be serious and Brazil coach Dunga has no plans on cutting his 23-man squad. It took an injury-time winner from Douglas to take all 3-pts against Peru with Neymar once again proving the saviour with a superb performance – goal plus an assist – while the BPL had representatives from Chelsea – Willian and Luis – with Fernandinho [Man City] also starting in midfield.

Philippe Coutinho continued his hot streak versus Chelsea this past weekend, finishing with 13 fantasy points.

Coutinho didn't get on the score-sheet but found a way to contribute in the fantasy sheet. He finished the day with two shots on target and four fouls won amongst other stats, finishing with 13 points. He has been Liverpool's best player lately and is averaging 17 fantasy points per match over his last three. He is a safe fantasy choice for this weekend.
