Poch's former Espanyol star Coutinho a doubt for Saints game
7:46am Tuesday 17th September 2013 in Sport
PHILLIPE Coutinho is an injury worry for Liverpool ahead of this weekend’s reunion with his former Espanyol boss Mauricio Pochettino.
The Brazilian midfielder was forced off by a shoulder injury during last night’s 2-2 draw at Swansea which returned Liverpool to the top of the embryonic Premier League table.
The club are now waiting for a scan to determine the extent of the problem.
Coutinho played under Saints boss Pochettino while on loan to Espanyol, and was a target for Saints during the last January transfer window.
Liverpool were also minus Daniel Agger last night. That was down to a side strain the defender – who scored the only goal when Saints lost at Anfield last December - picked up while trying to avoid a dumbbell falling on his foot in the gym.
