JURGEN KLOPP faces a sleepless night as he waits on the fitness of star player Philippe Coutinho, according to Echo.
The Brazilian ace reported back from international duty on Wednesday ahead of this weekend’s trip to Southampton.
But instead of training with the rest of the Liverpool squad on Thursday, Coutinho instead went to the private Spire Hospital for a scan and injury assessment.
It means he’s now a doubt to face the Saints on Saturday, much to the annoyance of Klopp.
The German has already lost Adam Lallana to a groin injury.
And if the £68m-rated ace is also ruled out, Klopp runs the risk of drawing a blank against Southampton’s rock-solid defence.
Liverpool are currently top of the table but know that an in-form Chelsea will be looking to take advantage of any slip-ups when they face Middlesbrough on Sunday.
If Coutinho is absent, Daniel Sturridge is likely to be handed a chance in attack alongside Roberto Firmino and Sadio Mane.
However, the striker is believed to be a transfer target for AC Milan and could be ready to end his Anfield career as early as January.
