The bad news is that Philippe Coutinho is out for up to three weeks. The other bad news is that Liverpool will be without a single senior centre half against Exeter tomorrow as Kolo Toure, Dejan Lovren and Mamadou Sakho are all absent as Liverpool's injury troubles hit farcical levels.
In case it wasn't obvious there isn't really any good news. Although Clinton Morrison will be playing in the FA Cup tie so that's good news as long as you're not a Liverpool fan. The Irish cult hero dominating a patched together defence probably won't be a highlight of Liverpool's year.
Speaking at his pre-match press conference ahead of Friday night's clash at St James Park, Klopp delivered the bad news.
Phil is more serious than Dejan and Kolo. None of these players will be available for tomorrow. Always with muscle injuries, you don't know exactly. Kolo's cramp is not serious, but after three days, it's not possible to play again in three days.
With Dejan, the situation is he will be available after the Manchester United game. Phil needs one, maybe two weeks longer, so three weeks.
Coutinho is now set to miss the games against Arsenal and Man United on the 13th and 17th of January respectively but before that, Klopp has to find a central defence to patch together.
It could have been an ideal time for Irish youth international Daniel Cleary to make his debut but unfortunately he's injured as well. It looks certain that Lucas will slot in at central defence and although Tiago Ilori has been recalled from his loan at Aston Villa, Klopp might have to turn to Emre Can to fill in alongside Lucas to make up one of the more unlikely Liverpool central defensive partnerships in recent years.
