Horrible news has been announced about Coutinho before the Liverpool game

One injured player has been ruled out of Aston Villa’s trip to Anfield on Saturday, according to manager Unai Emery, and Liverpool supporters will recognize the player’s name.

Prior to this weekend’s game, the Spaniard was questioned about former Reds playmaker Philippe Coutinho during his pre-match press conference this afternoon.

The 51-year-old stated (through avfc.co.uk) that Philippe Coutinho “is still ailing…I chatted with him this week; I haven’t watched him play as many games as I’d want since he’s had a rough month.

However, it goes without saying that we must exercise patience as the injuries heal. This year, he won’t play again until the end of the season because we have two weeks left.

According to Emery, Villa would have “the same players we had last week” if there are no issues during Friday’s training session, with Calum Chambers hoping to travel after a recent illness.

It would’ve been appropriate if Coutinho could participate on a day when Liverpool supporters would say goodbye to three of his former colleagues, Bobby Firmino, James Milner, and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain (Naby Keita’s arrival occurred after the Brazilian left for Barcelona in 2018).

The 30-year-old won’t be scoring in Villa’s final away game of the season. Just under a year ago, his goal against Manchester City had the Reds dreaming of an improbable Premier League title success. However, Pep Guardiola’s team rallied from a 2-0 deficit to win 3-2 and retain the trophy.

It’s disappointing that the Brazil playmaker won’t be present on a memorable day for some of his former teammates, especially his international teammate Firmino, even though LFC may be happy to avoid the “former player coming back to haunt his old club” narrative.

Ollie Watkins, Emi Buendia, and Jacob Ramsey, the latter of whom was recently referred to as “a great fit for someone like Liverpool” by journalist Ryan Taylor (GIVEMESPORT), might make Emery’s team dangerous even without Coutinho.

With European football on the horizon and them being one of the most improved teams in the Premier League this year, Jurgen Klopp’s club will have earned a victory over the Villans.
