Liverpool Wait On Four For Newcastle
Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers expects to have as many as four injured players back to fitness in time for the game against Newcastle on Saturday.
Philippe Coutinho, Joe Allen, Aly Cissokho and Glen Johnson are all expected to be available for selection on Saturday. Midfielder Coutinho was particularly impressive against United last season in the Reds’ 6-0 victory at St James’ Park and has been sidelined since September with a shoulder injury for which he underwent surgery.
Full-backs Johnson and Cissokho, both recently in the treatment for ankle injuries, are already back in training, while Joe Allen, who has been out with a hamstring injury, is close to being ready to a return to training.
Liverpool manager Rodgers said “Glen is out on the field and hopefully he will be ready, likewise Joe.
Aly has trained and should be fine and fit for Newcastle.”
