There are a number of reasons why this team has been successful so far this season. One of those reasons is simply that we have some very talented footballers at the club.
Philippe Coutinho has turned the attention elsewhere by describing the importance of mentality in helping the team enjoy a promising start to the campaign.
He told FourFourTwo, via Liverpoolfc.com: “Confidence is a huge factor out on the pitch.”
“Attacking midfielders need to play with happiness. By that I mean dribbling at pace and making things happen. If you repeat that every day, then you will tap into the perfect mental state to be creative.”
“If we get only two or three chances in 90 minutes, you need to be confident that you will make the right decision in the final third and then put the ball in the back of the net.”
“I think it comes through repeated quality training, which gives you belief in your ability as well as the confidence to transfer your work from the training ground onto the pitch.”
Playing with happiness has certainly made us fans happy.
Simply reading what he has had to say just makes us miss him more, but it also makes us more excited for his return.
Coutinho has taken his game to a completely different level this season, evolving into a dominant Premier League force who is taking advantage of the ability to control games given to him by the talent he possesses.
It has been a collective effort from Jurgen Klopp and his players in implementing a positive mentality that has given the entire team the belief that it can achieve big things.
The hard work that is being put in behind the scenes in training is there for all to see on match day.
Keep playing with confidence and the positive results will continue to come our way.
