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.

Coutinho could return to training this week after shoulder surgery last month. He may even be available this weekend to face Newcastle.

Coutinho inspired the 6-0 route of the Magpies last season and will hope to be ready for this weekend's rematch. It may come too soon however, as he has yet to rejoin full training.

The shoulder injury sustained by Phillipe Coutinho in Liverpool's 2-2 draw with Swansea City Monday night will require surgery and will leave the midfielder out of action until late October according to Liverpool's official website.

This is a tough injury blow to a Reds side that has started well out of the gates, with the young Brazilian a significant part of the mix. His real life contributions on the pitch haven't translated to fantasy success as well as expected in the early going, but the creative midfielder played a key role in the Liverpool attack. Currently the most owned midfielder in the Yahoo game, managers need to find a replacement immediately.

The Brazilian schemer had neither a goal nor an assist but he was none-the-less productive for both his team and fantasy managers.

Coutinho seems ready to pick up where he left off last season after coming over from Inter. Liverpool's number 10 had a couple of tame shots on target to make fantasy managers happy and to those he added a number of incisive passes that could have resulted in assists had his teammates been more effective with their finishing. Coutinho's partnership with Daniel Sturridge continues to be impressive.

Liverpool are expected to bid 30 million pounds for Anzhi and Brazil's attacking midfielder Willian.

Willian, like all of his teamates, is up for sale as the Anzhi Makhachkala experiment falls apart in real time. The left-sided attacker would be a big signing for Liverpool, and could be the key to moving Coutinho infield, which Brendan Rodgers sees as his best position.

Brendan Rodgers admitted that Coutinho's best position is central, but that he'll play out wide until new signings allow for a switch.

Coutinho was a fantasy revelation, and he's a very popular target for fantasy managers this season. That value could increase if he's allowed to be the playmaker behind a lead striker. But interesting that Rodgers doesn't rate his own signings to allow the move - unless it's more a defensive change that needs to happen. Liverpool are actively looking for a left back to challenge Jose Enrique.

Shaktar Donetsk's star attacking midfielder, Henrikh Mkhitaryan, will, as expected, be signing for Borussia Dortmund.

Liverpool were keen on the player, but will now be forced to look elsewhere. The club still need to find more goals from midfield, and more creativity in the center of the pitch, as the likes of Philippe Coutinho are probably too slight to prosper infield.
