Liverpool midfielder Philippe Coutinho has insisted that his injury is not serious in his Instagram post post their important 1-0 win against Watford at Vicarage Road on Monday night.

The Brazilian was taken off the pitch just after 13 minutes into the game and there was lot of doubts over Coutinho’s involvement for the rest of the season. However, much to the delight of Reds fans, Coutinho has only suffered a dead leg after taking a heavy knock on his leg.

Despite trying to continue with the pain, the 24-year old could not manage to stay on the pitch as he was subbed off by manager Jurgen Klopp. After being taken off, Coutinho has quickly came back to the bench as the medical staff has confirmed it to be a dead leg.

The Brazilian midfielder could be fit for Liverpool in their important game against Southampton next weekend as he is keen to help Liverpool achieve Champions League football at the end of the season.

In his Instagram post, Coutinho wrote: “Thanks to all for the support. It isn’t serious.”

The Reds have clinched a crucial 1-0 win against Watford thanks to wonderful goal from German midfielder Emre Can as the win did not look convincing.

The result has helped them tighten their grip on the third position that they possess at the moment and with only three games left in the campaign, Jurgen Klopp and his men are highly motivated to finish in the top four which would ensure Champions League football next season.

Fans can be happy as the team managed to dig deep and win three crucial points and the fact that Coutinho’s injury was only a dead leg. The return of Adam Lallana is another major positive for the club as the English midfielder have missed their last five games and will play a massive role in the final few games in their current campaign.
