Philippe Coutinho’s form since his return from injury is not a concern for Jurgen Klopp, who is trying to be patient with him.
The Brazilian was a sensation for Liverpool in the beginning of the season, but was out for close to seven weeks with an ankle injury in November.
He has only scored one goal since his return after 12 games, in the 3-1 loss to Leicester and played only one hour in the match against Burnley.
“The influence of him on the game is really big. If he is not at 100 per cent you miss something, that’s how it is.
“But two weeks ago we played Arsenal and he did really well. Yes, Burnley again was not the best game, but he misses in this moment – which is pretty normal after a long injury – this kind of consistency.
“But the training week so far was perfect, he presented himself really well; it was fluent, confident and looked really well.”
