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 the 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.

Phillipe Coutinho has been one of Liverpool's more consistent attacking weapons in recent weeks and can be trusted for starts in fantasy due to the Reds current injury woes.

Coutinho has played well enough where a spot in Rodger's XI should be earned regardless of his squad's health but with Adam Lallana now sidelined for a month, even more responsibility falls on the Brazilian's shoulders. In Pool's last four league contests, Coutinho has collected either a goal or an assist, the consistency and form fantasy managers crave. With a rested Raheem Sterling and Steven Gerrard impressing in his final days with the club, there is plenty of potential spark to come from the Reds midfield at the Stadium of Light in Saturday's early kickoff.

Liverpool were lucky to defeat Queens Park Rangers 2-3, as the hosts gifted the vistors two own goals, but the third Reds strike was a 90th minute beauty by Philippe Coutinho.

A lively match that ended in bizarre fashion, Liverpool escape with all the points despite a lackluster overall performance. Mario Balotelli was frustratingly ineffective all day, including missing a sitter that will surely be one of the top Vine videos of the week. Things began to noticeably change for the better when Coutinho came on, as the pace he and Raheem Sterling possess allowed them to run free into the area. His goal came on a counter-attack as he took a Steven Gerrard pass on the left, cut sharply inside, and smashed a low drive with pinpoint accuracy into the far corner. Until Sturridge comes back, having Coutinho and Sterling on the pitch together appears to be essential to the Reds attacking hopes.

Phillipe Coutinho's groin strain, which kept him out of Liverpool's league match last weekend, continues to keep the midfielder's status in doubt as the Reds prepare for the Merseyside Derby.

The injury list is piling up for Brendan Rodgers at the moment. With Glen Johnson and Joe Allen already ruled out and Daniel Sturridge highly unlikely to start, Coutinho's absence would all but decide Rodgers' XI for him. Expect a front six of Raheem Sterling, Mario Balotelli, Adam Lallana, Steven Gerrard, Jordan Henderson and one of either Lazar Markovic or Ricky Lambert.

Philippe Coutinho was at the center of an excellent Liverpool 4-0 win over Borussia Dortmund at Anfield with a goal and an assist.

Liverpool got goals from Daniel Sturridge, Dejan Lovern, Jordan Henderson and Coutinho as they looked to make a statement heading into the season without last season's talisman Luis Suarez. Coutinho, while he won't fill a similar role, looked very much the man to step up to make up the numbers with his exceptional display against the 2012-13 Champions League runners up. The only caveat on an otherwise great day is that Dortmund were missing a number of World Cup winners from their starting line-up while Liverpool were pretty much full strength.
