Liverpool's Philippe Coutinho ready to start against Burnley, says Jurgen Klopp

Liverpool's Philippe Coutinho ready to start against Burnley, says Jurgen Klopp”

The Brazil worldwide has been eased into the first-team picture after missing the start of the campaign with a back injury but made his comeback with a 15-minute cameo in the Champions League draw with Sevilla on Wednesday.

Jurgen Klopp praised the Anfield crowd for the way they reacted to Philippe Coutinho's return - and hinted the Brazilian could start against Burnley on Saturday.

"You can build up, you can get minutes when you start. He should be ready", Klopp told a media conference.

Aldridge wrote for the Sunday World: "I don't think anyone has a big problem with a lad from South America wanting to try and force through a move to Barcelona, as that would have been a dream for him when he was growing up back in Brazil". "He has trained outstanding since he's back".

As far as the team news is concerned, star attacker Sadio Mane is out due to suspension and we can expect Coutinho to replace him in the starting XI.

However, Klopp is confident the squad can cope in the absence of the Senegal global, just as they did at the end of last season when he was sidelined for the run-in due to a serious knee injury.

"We cannot take out the five goals against City but if we could do it, we have played a lot of games with decent defensive performances", he added.

"It was clear before the season that there would be moments when he can not - or should not - play", the German said of Mane. That's why we built the squad. Roberto (Firmino), Phil and Alex can play on the left.

Klopp confirmed that forward Danny Ings has returned to training after recovering from a knee injury but midfielder Adam Lallana and full back Nathaniel Clyne remain on the sidelines.

Burnley have beaten Chelsea and Crystal Palace in their first four league games of the season.
