Coutinho pushing for starting berth

Liverpool could welcome Philippe Coutinho back to their starting line-up for this evening’s visit of Norwich City.

The Brazilian international played the last twenty-five minutes of Sunday afternoon’s shock defeat to Hull City, and could take Raheem Sterling’s place in midfield.

Daniel Agger and Iago Aspas are also pushing for recalls after missing the match at the KC Stadium while Daniel Sturridge is out for up to eight weeks with an ankle problem.

With Everton facing Manchester United at Old Trafford, another defeat for the Reds here will see them drop out of the top four.

Meanwhile, the club are set to battle Arsenal in the race to sign Barcelona attacker Pedro, according to the Metro.

The Spain international is reportedly unhappy with life at the Nou Camp but has already equalled his league goals from last season this time around, netting seven times in just fourteen appearances.

The 26 year old is keen to cement his place in Spain’s squad for next summer’s World Cup finals, and would consider a move to the Premier League should a big a club come calling with Barca likely to allow him to leave on loan with a view to a permanent move should they decide to sell.
