Philippe Coutinho is available for Aston Villa to play with Manchester United Football on Saturday nightbut Steven Gerrard will not rush his new signature because he admits he is not fit.
Gerrard also says Lucas Digne is available for the clash, live Sky Sports, after becoming Villa ‘s second signing window in a £ 25 million transfer from Everton.
“They are available. Philippe has been training for three days now without any problems. Of course we have to improve his wrestling sharpness and condition.”
“Lucas is a little different. He’s been doing group training for a while and was available to Everton before he came.”
“Both are available for selection in the group and both are in a good position, but the decisions will of course be based on the information we have had about both players over the last few days.”

Buendia: Coutinho and I can play together
Aston Villa creator Emi Buendia has taken shape in recent weeks, but now faces direct competition from Philippe Coutinho, who has borrowed … or is it?
In an exclusive interview with Sky SportsThe Argentine discusses how the pair could play together, about life under Steven Gerrard, his current form and dream of playing at the World Cup alongside Lionel Messi.
Analysis: Coutinho could fill Grealish’s emptiness
Jack Grealish once remarked that Philippe Coutinho was one of his favorite players to watch on YouTube. “He always has, you know, where he goes left and falls like a little shimmy, which I like to do myself.” Now the road closed in a circle.
While Grealish has perfected his skills so much that he has earned £ 100 million to move to Manchester City, Coutinho returns to the Premier League to replace him at Aston Villa. If the Brazilian can repeat the form that brought him from Liverpool to Barcelona, it will be an ideal signature.
There are similarities between the two players. Grealish appreciated Coutinh’s ability to “walk around the players as if they weren’t there,” and that’s exactly what Villa loved about his former captain. They missed a player who could do things this season.
Is Coutinho still adored by Grealish? At 29, it’s time to regain his best form under the leadership of old teammate Steven Gerrard, but his career has moved on in Barcelona. If Coutinho, like Grealish, is inspired to be the main man in Villa Park, it’s fun.
