Team News:Coutinho Fit For Norwich But Toure A Doubt

Liverpool will have Philippe Coutinho available to face Norwich City on Wednesday night, but Kolo Toure faces further fitness tests, according to Brendan Rodgers.

The Liverpool boss was facing questions from the media ahead of the mid-week Premier League clash, which comes just days after the Reds’ 3-1 defeat at Hull City on Sunday.

Brazilian Coutinho came on as a second-half substitute for Liverpool at the KC Stadium, having not trained all week with a high ankle strain.

“Philippe will be fine, Rodgers is quoted by the club’s official website as saying. “He’s had no further reaction from the game yesterday. He’s trained this morning, so all being well he’ll be fit.”

However, Toure, who returned to the starting line-up for Sunday’s trip to the East coast, sustained a further knock during the game.

Rodgers added, “We’ll assess that in the next 24 hours, but hopefully he should be available.”

Liverpool are without Daniel Sturridge, Jose Enrique and Iago Aspas for Wednesday’s game at Anfield, who are all suffering from medium-term injuries.
