Liverpool fans, hello and welcome back.

Another day, another round-up tailored specifically to meet your needs. You can thank us later (seriously, there’s a comments box provided at the bottom).

Read on below for the latest news or watch the video above for the breaking headlines. Enjoy, you classy crowd of people.

Coutinho latest

It’s safe to say Philippe Coutinho is a fairly important asset to Jurgen Klopp at Liverpool, which is why fans are celebrating the news - reported by The Guardian - that the Brazilian could be fit to face Swansea City this weekend.

Coutinho was believed to have sustained a potentially serious hamstring injury during the win over Man City, but scans have confirmed the news is better than first feared.

It’s highly unlikely he’ll take the field against Bordeaux in the Europa League, but good news all the same.

Gerrard in Legends game

Moving on, Steven Gerrard will play for Liverpool again, but, before anyone gets overly excited, it will be for a ‘Legends’ side next year.

Gerrard will feature alongside the likes of Jamie Carragher, Ian Rush and John Arne Riise when a selected XI face off against an Australian legends team for charity.

Carragher analysis

Last but not least, Carragher was left inspired by Liverpool’s performance against Man City at the weekend - even if it did leave the aforementioned Coutinho worries.

Watch Carragher's analysis here:

The former Anfield defender said watching the Reds play was akin to watching the ‘Red Arrows’ in action, whilst also describing the first half an hour or so as being as good as he’d ever seen.
