Star playmaker Phillipe Coutinho is a doubt going into Wednesday evening’s game. The Brazil international missed Liverpool’s opening three games due to a back-injury.

Coutinho is also the subject of interest from Barcelona. Liverpool recently turned down a third bid for their star playmaker from the La Liga giants.

Nathaniel Clyne is also a major doubt going into the mid-week clash.

Emre Can meanwhile started the weekend game on the bench after missing training on Thursday. The Germany international is however expected to be available for selection against Hoffenheim.
