Philippe Coutinho: Could start for Liverpool against West Brom

Liverpool have won 19 and lost only two of their last 25 league games against West Brom ahead of Sunday’s latest encounter at Anfield.

Team news

Philippe Coutinho could be recalled to the Liverpool starting line-up after returning from a hamstring injury in the Europa League draw at FC Sion on Thursday night, but Daniel Sturridge misses out with a hamstring problem of his own.

West Brom are without Stephane Sessegnon, also due to a hamstring injury, but Claudio Yacob is available again after serving a one-game suspension against Tottenham last weekend.

Kick-off at Anfield on Sunday is at 4pm.
