Daniel Sturridge doubled Liverpool’s lead five minutes after Coutinho’s 17th-minute strike as Jurgen Klopp’s team look to round off a memorable week in style.

The Reds qualified for the quarter-finals of the Europa League with a 1-1 draw at Manchester United on Thursday, sealing a 3-1 aggregate win.

They have shown no signs of tiredness and are in complete control of Ronald Koeman’s team.

Liverpool will leapfrog Southampton and Stoke into seventh place if they manage to hold onto their lead, keeping alive their dreams of a top four finish.

Should Klopp’s men hold, they will be just four points behind fourth-placed Manchester City, who host Manchester United at 4pm.

Coutinho is key for Liverpool

Coutinho will play a key part in Liverpool’s bid for a top four finish and European glory. The 23-year-old has shown in the past four days that he is capable of producing spectacular moments and it is for this reason that he is so admired by the Liverpool faithful.

Following his impressive display against United, Liverpool legend Jamie Carragher wrote on Twitter that the former Inter Milan player is worth £60 million.

It means that in the three years since he joined Liverpool from the Italian club, his price tag has risen by £51.5m. Goals like the one against Southampton back that theory.
