Trio set to miss Hoffenheim game

    Lallana, Coutinho and Sturridge will miss the crunch tie

    Liverpool midfielder Philippe Coutinho has been left out of the squad for the Champions League qualifier against TSG Hoffenheim on Tuesday evening.

    He will join England international duo Adam Lallana and Daniel Sturridge in sitting out the important fixture.

    The Brazil international was not named among the touring party announced by the club on Monday morning for the key game in Germany.

    And manager Jurgen Klopp has confirmed that the situation surrounding the twenty-five year old remains the same and that he is “not available”.

    “Nothing has changed. Not on one side or on the other.” he said.

    “He is not available for us in the moment, that’s the main issue if you want.

    “He cannot play for Liverpool in this moment and, how everybody can imagine, that’s quite a blow for us.

    “We’ve known for a few days about it so we can prepare this game without him, like we have to prepare the game without Adam Lallana and Daniel Sturridge.” he finished.

    The full squad: Alexander-Arnold, Moreno, Lovren, Milner, Wijnaldum, Henderson, Can, Mane, Salah, Firmino, Kent, Solanke, Origi, Gomez, Klavan, Flanagan, Robertson, Matip, Grujic, Mignolet, Karius, Ward.
