Coutinho hadn’t scored since Premier League opening day until his wonderful brace downed champions Chelsea on Saturday lunchtime.
And our Brazilian magician has assured fans that the goals will be the catalyst for an upturn in his form.
He’s not been awful, but he has been frustrating at times, solely because we know too well what genius he’s capable of.
But his performance at Stamford Bridge more than reminded us what he’s capable of, and we can’t wait to see him go on a run of impressive form.
“For me, it was great. I wasn’t playing so well and hadn’t scored for a while, so I was glad to score again and help the team,” the 23-year-old told the official website.
“I hope [it can be a turning point for me], I hope so. Sometimes when you play things don’t always go well, but I always work hard.
“I’m always looking to improve and I hope from now on I’ll continue improving, not only me, but the team, which is the most important thing.”
Coutinho also discussed his celebrations, which will be replayed on plenty of occasions over his Liverpool tenure. First up he grabbed the ball and tucked it under his jersey, before performing a six-metre knee slide on the second!
“Ah, yes, that was for my daughter – my wife is pregnant and we’re expecting a little girl,” revealed Coutinho.
“I’ve been working quite hard, on all aspects of my game. As I said, I haven’t been playing well, it wasn’t a good phase for me, but I always concentrate on working hard.
“There are many things to work on before the next game, and I hope it continues.
“As for my left foot, I’ve been working on it in training and it came off…thank God!”
“I think everyone’s happy with the result. We know the work is just beginning and we have to keep it up, but I think we’re on the right track,” he continued.
“Of course, we’ve had a run without any wins, and everyone was focused on winning, which was important for us.
“Three points and against that opposition, it’s given a boost to our confidence and I hope we can now focus on each game and be successful.
“It’s a very important win, but at the same time we have to take the positives and negatives so we can improve and start thinking about the next game.
“We can’t spend too much time thinking about this one, we have an important game during the week, and I hope we can perform well again and win.”
Coutinho will likely be rested for our midweek trip to Russia, with precedence being put on the Premier League fixture versus Crystal Palace on Sunday. He linked up very well with countryman Roberto Firmino against Chelsea and it’d be great to see those two continue to blossom their relationship at Anfield. Keeping the pair fit and in good form will likely be our best chance of becoming a proper attacking force once again.
