The summer transfer saga involving Coutinho, Barcelona and Liverpool is certain to have affected the midfielder's standing in the squad and he will have to fix that in order to return to becoming a regular in the starting XI.

However, Jurgen Klopp and Liverpool refused to entertain talk of the 25-year-old leaving Anfield, leaving him upset over the failed transfer.

Liverpool will look to build on their demolition of Arsenal when they take on Manchester City at the Etihad Stadium on Saturday lunchtime.

Despite not yet featuring for Liverpool this season, Coutinho has played twice for Brazil, in their recent 2018 FIFA World Cup qualifiers.

Klopp also welcomed back Coutinho and nine other players to training on Thursday ahead of the resumption of club football, including Roberto Firmino, Mohamed Salah, Ben Woodburn, Danny Ward, Dejan Lovren, Joe Gomez, Trent Alexander-Arnold, Dominic Solanke and Emre Can.

Xbox One X is releasing soon and with it a lot of Xbox One's games will get visually enhanced to match the console's features. A lot of people tweet me and say 'you can't do this because of fairness, ' and we understand that.

"Nothing else to say, actually, so he's back and we had a really good conversation, so good".

Philippe Coutinho is back with Liverpool after playing for Brazil. "We weren't going to start him in both games and play him for 90 minutes", added the former Fulham boss, stressing that they're keeping the players development in mind.

"I know what people think, but Phil had the back problem a few weeks ago and couldn't train so that means he missed around about three weeks", Klopp told LFCTV today.

Philippe Coutinho has arrived back at Liverpool's Melwood training centre for the first time since the summer transfer window shut.

"We always have the same decision to make: 'Does he need training or can he play?' and all that stuff".
