Klopp cautious over Coutinho


Philippe Coutinho has yet to recover from the hamstring injury that has resulted in him missing Liverpool's last three games.

Coutinho has been sidelined since the Reds 4-1 win at Manchester City on November 21, missing the wins against Bordeaux, Stoke and Southampton, and he is unlikely to be fit for the trip to Newcastle on Sunday.

Manager Jurgen Klopp hoped to have the Brazil international available for the game at St James' Park but he admits they cannot risk aggravating the problem further.

"I like optimism but with Phil, we were too optimistic. Sometimes it happens like this. There’s nothing to criticise about this. He tried everything he could. He trained nearly normally but he doesn’t feel comfortable with it," Klopp told reporters.

"We have to take care of this. The muscle is a dangerous thing when you are always on your feet, and when you don’t feel comfortable then stop. He is training. We will wait. If somebody tells me he’s available for the next game, then he plays no problem. But yesterday nobody gave me the sign. So today we have to wait again."
