Photos: Liverpool signing joins Coutinho and Firmino in training ahead of FA Cup clash

Loris Karius looks to impress Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp ahead of the visit of Plymouth in the FA Cup

Philippe Coutinho trained with Roberto Firmino and Loris Karius ahead of Liverpool’s clash against Plymouth in the FA Cup third round on Sunday.

The Brazil international still hasn’t made a return to first-team action since the midfielder suffered an ankle injury in the first half of their 2-0 victory over Sunderland at Anfield in November.

Coutinho returned to training over the festive period and the South American stepped up his recovery from injury as he was put through his paces alongside the rest of the Liverpool squad.

Loris Karius is widely tipped to return to Klopp’s starting line-up at the expense of Simon Mignolet for the visit of Plymouth as Liverpool look to book their place in the fourth round.

Here is a round up of the best photos from Liverpool’s training session at Melwood on Friday afternoon as Coutinho looked to prove his fitness to Reds manager Jurgen Klopp.
