Jurgen Klopp’s tenure as Liverpool boss has gotten off to a pretty rough start already – and his team haven’t even played a game yet.

After losing Jose Gomez and Danny Ings for the season, it now looks as if Klopp may have to do without Philippe Coutinho for this weekend’s trip to White Hart Lane.

According to The Independent, the Brazilian playmaker is doubtful for Saturday’s action with a groin injury and could be joined on the sidelines by Dejan Lovren.
