Sterling, Coutinho and Lallana face fitness race for Tottenham clash

Two were substituted during Saturday’s Merseyside derby while the former Southampton star missed it altogether, but Brendan Rodgers hopes to have all three available on Tuesday


Liverpool will give late fitness checks to Raheem Sterling, Philippe Coutinho and Adam Lallana ahead of Tuesday’s Premier League game against Tottenham.

Brazilian midfielder Coutinho lasted 56 minutes of Saturday’s Merseyside derby against Everton before coming off with a knee injury, while winger Sterling was also substituted in the closing stages due to a foot problem.

Lallana was not included for the trip to Goodison Park, the former Southampton man having been troubled by a calf complaint, but manager Brendan Rodgers is hopeful that all three could be fit when Spurs visit Anfield.

“Phil Coutinho had a knock on his knee and Raheem had a knock on his foot,” Rodgers told the club’s official website.

“We had fresh players on the bench to bring on and hopefully they will be fit for Tuesday.”

On Lallana, the manager added: “We need to see how he is but he has a big possibility for Tuesday.”
