Liverpool hire private jet for Coutinho and Firmino

Jordan Henderson is desperately trying to regain his fitness to return for Saturday's Merseyside derby against Everton.

The Reds host their Merseyside rivals on Saturday at Anfield and will be looking to stretch their three-game unbeaten run.

Where can I watch it?

Full-back Seamus Coleman suffered a double leg-break in Ireland's clash with Wales and is expected to miss the rest of 2017.

With the season in its final stretch, injuries are piling up again for Liverpool, and one of Jurgen Klopp's favourites appears to have picked up an injury on worldwide duty.

Liverpool's owner, Fenway Sports Group, has sanctioned the rental of a jet to enable Coutinho and Firmino to return to training with Jürgen Klopp's squad on Thursday.

One consolation for Koeman is that Ross Barkley will be fresh.

Everton, now three places behind their fourth-placed city rivals in the league table, can cut the gap to just three points with a victory at Anfield.

"I don't have a doubt that if they continue working the same way they will be in the top four at the end of the season". They'll likely have to wait until next season to try to win their first Premier League title, but a Champions League berth is certainly in play to claim this time.

Ever since the attacking midfielder joined Liverpool, he has experienced the derby on seven occasions, losing none and enjoying a goal each away at Goodison Park and Anfield.

This fixture has seen 21 red cards shown, more than any other Premier League fixture.

"That's what we fight for and that's the only thing I personally think about also". Back then Kevin Campbell opened the scoring after four minutes and only 19 players finished the game. We have to prepare ourselves for that but it's Liverpool against Everton, not us against Lukaku.
