It seems far too long since Philippe Coutinho last got himself on the score-sheet and we’re hoping that will change on Monday night when Liverpool face Leicester at the King Power Stadium.
The Brazilian is yet to regain the form he demonstrated at the beginning of the season and the form that saw him take his game to another level. He was a class above most in the Premier League at one point only for his rise to be hampered by an ankle injury.
Wonder strikes seem to have become a common theme to his game which is one reason why we are so eager to see him find the back of the net again.
Besides this, he has a habit of coming up with important goals at decisive moments and that is exactly what we need at this stage of the season.
Think Manchester United and Borussia Dortmund in the Europa League, think our opening day trip to Arsenal, think that memorable long-range effort against Southampton a few seasons back. The list goes on.
It’s time for him to start taking responsibility again, putting himself at the heart of Liverpool attacks once more and reestablishing an understanding with Sadio Mane and Roberto Firmino.
