Coutinho dropped for Liverpool FC's trip to Man City

Manchester City vs Liverpool Coutinho dropped for Liverpool FC's trip to Man City
Noah Ferguson | 09 September, 2017, 12:58

Manchester City and Liverpool meet on Saturday lunchtime hoping to land an early strike at the top of the table.

The Brazil star pulled up at Melwood on Thursday morning, having flown back to England from global duty via private jet on Wednesday.

He has missed the start of the Reds' campaign with a back injury amid interest from Barcelona.

"Of course we were interested in him, but Arsenal decided not to sell him so I wish Alexis all the best".

Liverpool will be relieved to have Philippe Coutinho- who was targeted by Barcelona through the summer- on their side.

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp has revealed he engaged in a "really good conversation" with Philippe Coutinho, but the player is not expected to be considered against Manchester City.

We can use these four or five days for proper training - we have all the numbers [regarding Coutinho's physical performance] from the Brazilian FA.

"I think he played, when fit, maybe 90 per cent of the games, especially in the important games".

Klopp expressed his delight at having finally completed the move but said he would have preferred to have signed the Guinea global for 2017-18, per Doyle: "I have lots of contacts in Germany, and I've never had so many congratulations than after we signed him". The next time he will be able to play.

The Reds look confident after they embarrassed Arsene Wenger's Arsenal in their last match, defeating them 4-0.

England Premier League leaders Manchester United go in search of their fourth successive victory of the season when they visit Stoke City in what is expected to be a tough challenge for Jose Mourinho's side.

City are likely to be without captain Vincent Kompany after the defender picked up a minor calf injury while playing for Belgium. What I like about him is that he can play in several positions and is good in small spaces as well as being able to run into the big ones.

If he opts to revert to a three-man defence, Eliaquim Mangala or Tosin Adarabioyo, the 19-year-old, could play their first games under Guardiola. The attacking midfielder will miss the game against his former club after being sent off celebrating City's late victor against Bournemouth.

"The caution I would throw into this otherwise rosy picture is that everyone was saying the same things about Liverpool a year ago and they ended up collapsing in disastrous fashion amid a miserable run of results last January". Zero chance. Not 1% chance to make a swap with Sanchez and Raheem.

One such option is 17-year-old academy graduate Ben Woodburn, who returned from the global break having scored once and assisted once for Wales. He is English. He has a lot of improvement to do. They asked, we said no and it stopped.
