Philippe Coutinho could sit out of Liverpool's trip to Tottenham this weekend.

The Brazilian attacker was suffering from a tight hamstring following last weekend's defeat to Burnley and sat out the midweek EFL Cup win over Burton.

Coutinho did take part in light training at Melwood on Thursday but Jurgen Klopp admits that the Saturday lunchtime showdown could be too soon for his return, report the Liverpool Echo.

“The muscle was a little stiff,” Klopp said. “He felt something so we didn’t want to take a risk (against Burton).

“We left him out of training until now. We have to make a decision on Friday with what we can do with him.
