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.

Liverpool beat Manchester City 3-2 to go five points clear at the top of the Premier League, with Philippe Coutinho hitting the winning goal.

What a game. As has been their signature this season, Liverpool started strongly and were 2-0 up within 25 minutes thanks to a smart finish from Raheem Sterling and a trademark header from Martin Skrtel. Manchester City worked their way back in to the match despite losing Yaya Toure to injury, and were unlucky not have been awarded a penalty towards end of the first half when Mamadou Sakho took out Edin Dzeko. City continued to press in the second half and were rewarded when David Silva slotted home after great work by substitute James Milner. It was soon to become 2-2 as Glenn Johnson diverted a cross in to his own net, and City came close to taking the lead when Sergio Aguero's cross was nudged agonisingly wide by Silva. With 12 minutes remaining and the away side in the ascendancy, Vincent Kompany sliced a clearance and the ball fell to Philippe Coutinho, who hit a sweet snap-shot beyond Joe Hart to win his side a massive three points.

Brendan Rodgers is hopeful that Phillipe Coutinho will be fit to start against Fulham this weekend.

The manager told "He [Coutinho] has only really been back training with the team in the last few days after getting medical clearance. For him to get 45 minutes will be really good for him. "Another good week next week and hopefully we can introduce him into the game next weekend."

Phillipe Coutinho was a second half substitute for Liverpool against Arsenal on Saturday. His return gave Liverpool some impetus, but didn't lead to any goals as they lost 2-0.

While it didn't help against the Gunners, having Coutinho back will be a big boost for the Reds. They have a pretty easy schedule around the Merseyside derby and there will rightly be a lot of investment in Liverpool players. We've yet to see much of Coutinho playing behind both Daniel Sturridge and Luis Suarez and the trio promises goals.

Philippe Coutinho has been cleared to return Saturday after missing more than a month of action due to a shoulder surgery.

Liverpool face Arsenal in an important top of the table match on Saturday and the return of Coutinho should help Liverpool's lethal attack. He can be considered for fantasy squads as he should fit in nicely with Luis Suarez and Daniel Sturridge. If the forwards keep scoring at such a lethal pace, assists are likely for Coutinho.

Philippe Coutinho is back in non-contact training at Liverpool, but likely won't be considered for this weekend's match against West Brom.

Liverpool will be desperate for Coutinho to be fit and ready for their match at Arsenal next week, November 2. He'll be kept in cotton wool until then and expected to regain his playmaking role from Victor Moses at the Emirates.
