Philippe Coutinho back in full training

Philippe Coutinho

Philippe Coutinho was back in full training at Melwood today.

The Liverpool playmaker is close to a return from action after injuring his ankle against Sunderland in November.

Reds’ boss Jürgen Klopp said today that the Brazilian won’t figure in Sunday’s FA Cup tie against Plymouth Argyle with a number of key players set to miss out through injury or rotation.

Striker Daniel Sturridge also trained today but there was no sign of Joel Matip, Jordan Henderson or James Milner.

Meanwhile, Liverpool’s Tiago Ilori is currently undergoing a medical at Reading after agreeing personal terms ahead of his proposed £3.75million transfer.
