Coutinho's Injured Ankle To Be Scanned

Liverpool midfielder Philippe Coutinho will have a scan on his injured ankle on Monday amid fears of ligament damage. The Brazilian broke down in tears holding his ankle after challenging for the ball with midfielder Didier Ndong during the Reds' 2-0 win over Sunderland at Anfield.

He was taken off on a stretcher with protective padding around the damaged area on 33 minutes with Divock Origi replacing him in the victory that briefly had the Reds at the Premier League summit. Coutinho was at Liverpool's training ground on Sunday for an initial assessment and left in a protective boot and on crutches.

Manager Jurgen Klopp said “We have to wait for the scan. What we know it is something with the ankle, he had pain. Pain gets better. In the first moment it was very painful but at half-time he said it was better. I am quite an optimistic guy so I hope he can train on Sunday.”
