Brendan Rodgers will be wiping the relief off his brow after Victor Moses’ standout debut for Liverpool against Swansea City, as Philippe Coutinho has been ruled out for six weeks with a shoulder injury.
Coutinho sustained the injury in the same game and will undergo a procedure to rectify it.
With the imminent return of Luis Suarez and Victor Moses looking like a shrewd year-long loan signing, Liverpool should have enough to see through the six weeks with minimal upheaval. Liverpool will undoubtedly miss his guile and intelligence in the Brazilian’s new-found central position, but it will allow Suarez to readjust himself into the starting eleven.
Liverpool have confirmed Philippe Coutinho will undergo a procedure on the shoulder injury he sustained in Monday evening’s 2-2 draw with Swansea City.
