Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers is targeting after the international break for his injured players to return for the Newcastle clash. Rodgers is optimistic he will be able to call upon Glen Johnson, Aly Cissokho and Joe Allen for the trip to St James' Park.
"Glen's out on the field and hopefully after the international break he'll be ready to come back into the squad," said Rodgers.
"We're okay. Aly Cissokho has trained over the course of the last week or so, so I think after the international break he'll be fine and fit. Joe Allen likewise - he should be ready for the Newcastle game.
"Coutinho will not be long after. Obviously Sebastian Coates will be that bit longer and has a bit more to do yet, but apart from that we're getting back to our numbers now."
