Philippe Coutinho, a Match Time Doubt, Gives Gutsy Performance in Liverpool Win

13 April, 2017, 01:37 | Author: Nora May

It was his 30th top-flight goal and put him one clear of former Middlesbrough attacker Juninho.

Liverpool's medical staff were hoping they could avoid an operation, but the decision has been taken to write off Mane's campaign and get him fit for pre-season.

Klopp's surprise decision to switch to a 3-5-2 formation with a tired Firmino alongside Coutinho, recovering from illness, on the bench de-stabilised his side and handed the initiative to their hosts.

Wijnaldum was as impressed as anybody by the genius of the No.11's decisive goal, but on an afternoon when Simon Mignolet also made two incredible saves, the midfielder pointed to the efforts of the entire team.

"Sometimes these are the moments you need as a player, and for us as a team we need a goalkeeper in a moment like this".

The Brazil duo's introduction completely transformed the game, but Coutinho was keen to deflect the credit.

"Of course. It was a big win".

A happy man indeed, Klopp also heaped praise on Simon Mignolet for keeping his side in it as he pulled off two fantastic saves in a very solid performance.

With his goal - his ninth of the season - Coutinho equalled his best scoring return for a Premier League season since joining the Reds, and with seven games still remaining, he is keen to add to that tally.

"They don't have to react like that; they can be disappointed but we will help them more than we help anybody else".

"We have won a few games this year, but this was really special", Klopp said, via BBC Sport.

There's nothing else I think about.

"Coutinho and Firmino will get the plaudits but Mignolet kept them in the game and deserves a round of applause".

Liverpool went 1-0 down at the end of the first half, with Ireland global Jonathan Walters heading past Simon Mignolet after good work from Xherdan Shaqiri.

"The only thing we have to forget, if you want, is that we are Liverpool and have to play like Liverpool".

"This was the most important three points of the season for the Reds". He feels much better but we will have to see if we can bring him tomorrow.
