Jurgen Klopp is hoping to get Phillipe Coutinho back from international duty as soon as he can in order to prepare for the weekend.
The Reds boss is keeping his fingers crossed over all his international stars, Sadio Mane already has a knee issue and will be checked on his return, and is looking to bring Coutinho back 12 hours earlier than had been anticipated.
The 24-year-old will play for Brazil against Colombia in their World Cup qualifier on Tuesday night and then hop on a plane asap in order to be ready for Leicester’s visit to Anfield on Saturday.
Klopp said: “For Coutinho, he is coming back Thursday morning at 9am and only because we make a few special arrangements with flights.
“Otherwise he would come on Thursday night, so nobody wants this.”
