Liverpool fans are beyond excited at the sight of their bench for Southampton semi-final
Guess who's back

Liverpool have coped admirably these past seven weeks but the sight of their star player on the bench will come as a cause for relief among all Reds fans.

Midfielder Philippe Coutinho suffered an ankle injury in a November Premier League clash with Sunderland and was ruled out for the rest of the year.

Coutinho missed all of Liverpool's December fixtures, including the defeat against Bournemouth and draws against West Ham and Sunderland, but he is ready to reclaim his place as Jurgen Klopp's key playmaker.

The Brazilian was named on the bench for Liverpool's EFL Cup semi-final with Southampton, inspiring waves of excitement from supporters who were treated to a pleasant surprise as they read the team news.
