Liverpool midfielder Philippe Coutinho is a doubt for tomorrow’s trip to Southampton after undergoing a scan on Thursday.

The 24-year-old was photographed at Liverpool’s Spire Hospital yesterday and that was soon circulated around social media sparking all kinds of rumours. However, it has since been confirmed that he was there for a scan on a tight hamstring.

Coutinho reported back from international duty with Brazil on Wednesday night and didn’t train yesterday because of the long haul involved.

Sources at the club insist that the scan was a “precautionary” measure after the player reported some discomfort.
