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 with Southampton. Nov 27 - 9:20 AM

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.

Phillipe Coutinho looks to build off a productive Week 34 as Liverpool host Queens Park Rangers on Saturday.

It was a 19 point week for Coutinho which featured no goals or assists but he was active, registering five shots on target between the two games. Luckily for fantasy managers, his price has not jumped too much as a very attractive matchup looms against a very vulnerable QPR side. With the striker situation looking to remain muddled until season's end, it only means more will be asked of the talented Brazilian.

Philippe Coutinho scored a stunning winner as Liverpool dented Manchester City's Premier League title defence with a deserved victory at Anfield.

This was a great match between very good sides, but in the end Liverpool shaded it and deservedly took the three points. Jordan Henderson's curling effort put the Reds ahead before Edin Dzeko finished off Sergio Aguero's great pass to equalise after a slick team move. That was how an even match stayed until half time, but Liverpool came out with renewed energy in the second half and their pressure eventually told when Brazilian midfielder Coutinho capped a man of the match display with the decisive goal with another curling strike from 25 yards. The result leaves Man City five points behind Chelsea having played a game more, while Liverpool move to fifth and are on a run of 11 Premier League matches without defeat

Philippe Coutinho scored a 30 yard screamer in the fourth minute to lead Liverpool to a 2-0 win over Southampton at St. Mary's Stadium.

This was an extremely controversial match that saw Southampton call for three penalties that were not given to them. Liverpool also had reason to complain as they too had a case for a penalty. Despite all the controversy, no penalties were given and no one was sent off. Liverpool looked to be in control for most of the match due to their 1-0 lead and Raheem Sterling made it 2-0 with 15 minutes left to put no doubt in fans' minds as to who won this one. Southampton will have to blame their poor finishing for the result and Ronald Koeman will have to question whether starting Sadio Mane or Dusan Tadic could have helped.

Liverpool enjoyed a productive afternoon as they won 2-0 over West Ham United with both goals set up by Phillipe Coutinho.

It looked like a frustrating day for the Reds after one half of play, as they dominated possession, and created several chances without cashing in, with a sitter from Lazar Markovic just before the half summing up their frustration. They never kept off the front foot though, and the chances began to come good in the second frame. A cross to Raheem Sterling allowed the speedster to play a 1-2 with Coutinho and Sterling chipped in his fifth league goal of the season. Then just 12 minutes into his substitution appearance, Daniel Sturridge scored after following Coutinho up the pitch on the break. The Brazilian dribbled nimbly toward the area then picked out Sturridge who finished with confidence. Add in another clean sheet and we are looking at the best form of the season right now for Liverpool. All of their fantasy stock is ticking up.
