Philippe Coutinho and Mamadou Sakho were among Liverpool’s travelling party as the Reds prepared to jet off to Augsburg on Wednesday afternoon.

The Brazil international started his first game since recovering from a hamstring injury as Liverpool were impressive 6-0 winners at Aston Villa in the Premier League on Sunday.

Sakho partnered Kolo Toure at centre-half as the Ivorian scored a rare goal in Liverpool’s landslide victory over Remi Garde’s struggling Villa side at Villa Park.

Liverpool posted a collage of photos on their Instagram account as Jurgen Klopp’s side settled into their seats ahead of their journey to Germany.

The Reds face Bundesliga side Augsburg in the first leg of their Europa League last-32 tie.
