Photo Proof: 'Amazing' €53m Liverpool star in hospital after new injury blow. Disaster for Klopp?

With Adam Lallana already ruled out of Saturday's trip to Southampton, it looks like the another important Liverpool player is set to miss the game.

According to the Liverpool Echo:

"Philippe Coutinho is a fitness doubt for Southampton. The classy attacking midfielder was photographed at the city's Spire Hospital on Thursday and is believed to have undergone a scan".

If Coutinho had a scan, then it's probably a muscle injury of some kind, and I'll be my bottom dollar that it's another hamstring injury.

Coutinho has suffered three hamstring injuries over the last year, with last one coming at the end of August.

Luckily, it coincided with the start of an international break, but unfortunately for Liverpool, this new injury comes at the end of an international break. Sod's law.

With 12 goals/assists in 12 games, Coutinho is proving to be massively influential for Liverpool this season, and whilst he'll me missed more than Adam Lallana, the team still has good options to replace him, i.e. Daniel Sturridge, who is averaging a goal/assist every 80 minutes this season.
