​Liverpool playmaker Coutinho to miss Man City clash

Liverpool's Philippe Coutinho will not return from an ankle injury in time to face Manchester City on New Year's Eve, boss Jurgen Klopp has confirmed.

The 24 year old Brazilian has missed six games with an injury picked up in November's win over Sunderland.

"The City game is too early and I'm pretty sure the Sunderland match on Monday is too early too," Klopp said.

The Reds manager also confirmed that defender Joel Matip will miss the City game with an ankle injury.
