How good is Philippe Coutinho?

The Brazilian endured a very strange summer in which he was constantly linked to Barcelona and even handed in a formal transfer request to force the move.

However, the diminutive playmaker has gone about his business with Liverpool this season in the most professional manner and if anything, he has probably increased his transfer value.

Against Swansea at Anfield, Coutinho produced a true Boxing Day bang, scoring an outrageous goal just six minutes into the match to break the deadlock for Jurgen Klopp's side.

The little midfielder picked up the ball from Mohamed Salah and unleashed an unstoppable shot from distance, leaving the Swans keeper with no chance.

Just watch below and enjoy yet another masterpiece from one of the finest in the Premier League.


That is just brilliant.

However, despite the fact Liverpool fans enjoyed the super strike, there was another factor to the goal that left them drooling; Roberto Firmino's involvement.

The Brazilian striker is renowned for being a team player and the whole move was started by him pressing Jordan Ayew high up the pitch and winning the ball back.

Safe to say, Reds supporters on Twitter were very, very happy with the former Hoffenheim man.


What was also refreshing to see was that Firmino's challenge was not given as a foul, because in certain other games, the referee may have deemed it as illegal.

However, it is clear that Ayew just chucks himself to the ground, with Firmino, Salah and then Coutinho punishing him for his lapse in concentration.
