Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp has provided an injury update on Philippe Coutinho, and it's not good news.

On December 1st, a few days after sustaining his ankle injury, Jurgen Klopp suggested that Coutinho will be out until mid-January, but soon after, a statement on the official Liverpool FC website claimed:

"Philippe Coutinho is targeting Liverpool's meeting with Manchester City on New Year's Eve for his return to action".

Coutinho also insisted he was ahead of schedule:

"My hope is to return for this game. The rehab is going really well. I can now walk without crutches and I am working well with the medical team. So I'm pleased with how I am recovering."

Well, Jurgen Klopp has put the stoppers on a possible early return. When asked today about Coutinho's chances of making the Man City game, he told reporters:

"No, but he’s in a good way. The City game for sure is too early, and I'm pretty sure the Sunderland game is too early too".

Coutinho is a miss for any team, but Liverpool are scoring goals and winning games without him right now, so it's clearly not a huge problem. The Reds no longer have to rely on just one play anymore, and with Daniel Sturridge fit again, and Firmino back on the scoresheet after a 9-hour barren spell, Liverpool are in good shape ahead of Saturday's crunch clash with City.
