Reds star Philippe Coutinho to miss out

Reds star Philippe Coutinho to miss out

Philippe Coutinho will once again be missing for Liverpool when they entertain Hoffenheim in their Champions League play-off clash.

Having missed the first three games of the season due to a back injury, the Barcelona target now has a bout of illness and Reds boss Jurgen Klopp confirmed he was unsure when the midfielder - a top summer target for Barcelona - would be able to return.

Right-back Nathaniel Clyne (hamstring) and midfielder Adam Lallana (thigh) both remain out too, with Liverpool holding a 2-1 lead from the first leg in Germany.

Trent Alexander-Arnold, who scored a fine free-kick in the first game, was rested against Crystal Palace on Saturday and is set to return, while Emre Can is also poised to return to the starting line-up.
