Philippe Coutinho
Philippe Coutinho says he will be back for Liverpool soon.

Philippe Coutinho has insisted he will work work tirelessly to recover from his injury so that he will once again be available for Liverpool after injuring his shoulder when in the Premeir League game against Swansea.

Coutinho fell on his shoulder after colliding with Ashley Williams and as a result required surgery. Without his creative talent in midfielder, Liverpool suffered and fell to their first loss of the season at the hands of Southampton.

But the 21 year old says that while it has been difficult to deal with not being able to help his club in the league, he hopes to be back in action soon to give Liverpool a timely boost as the side look to stay involved in the fight for a top four place.

He told Globo Esporte: "It's annoying to get injured, especially when you are playing well, but that happens.

"I now want to focus on my recovery, and do everything right to be back as soon as possible to help Liverpool in the league.

"The surgery was a success and this is what matters the most. I'll be back soon."

Liverpool's performance without Coutinho highlighted the lack of service to Daniel Sturridge and Iago Aspas on Saturday, but the Reds will no doubt be boosted by the return of Luis Suarez from his suspension this week.

The Uruguay international will be available for selection against Manchester United and though Brendan Rodgers has insisted he won't definitely be in the squad, after his performances for Liverpool last season the striker is likely to be included in their fight to make it through to the next round of the League Cup.

While Coutinho is hopeful of returning to action for Liverpool soon Brendan Rodgers admitted last week that the Brazilian could be out of action for up to six weeks, putting his return date at around the end of October.
