The Liverpool fans here in the Transfer Tavern really aren’t all too happy right now.
Indeed, our resident Reds are fuming about Philippe Coutinho’s fitness, as he prepares to face England for Brazil at Wembley tonight. The midfielder, who was denied a move to Barcelona over the course of the summer, has missed the last few Premier League games, though could feature this evening.
That’s the second time such an event has taken place this season, with the 25-year-old missing club duty during the transfer saga. Obviously, it’s a huge annoyance for the Liverpool fans, who’d love to see Coutinho pulling the strings behind the likes of Sadio Mane and Mo Salah more frequently.
It’s the old club vs country debate after all, an argument always likely to rear its ugly head during the international breaks.
With that in mind, here’s a look at how Liverpool fans on Twitter fumed at Coutinho’s fitness fiasco.
Coutinho has pitched up fully fit for Brazil after being injured for us for a second time this season. Is a huge shame and not sure we should be quite so understanding.

If coutinho starts for Brazil tonight.. Then he starts for us next bpl game… Simple..
The shirt of the Selecao must have miraculous healing powers. Anytime an injured player goes near it they become fully fit *coughs*Coutinho #LFC

I’ll be watching England v Brazil tonight. Could be the last time this season we get to see Coutinho play in England.
