Liverpool’s superstar playmaker Coutinho is on the verge of breaking a Premier League record; becoming its highest ever Brazilian goalscorer.
Following Saturday’s Merseyside Derby wonder-strike, our 24-year-old is sitting on 28 English league goals, which is just one behind Middlesbrough legend Juninho.
Hopefully, he’ll be able to break the record in the coming weeks, as we need his attacking genius more than ever with Sadio Mane expecting a spell on the sidelines.
What’s more, Coutinho has yet again explained that he sees his future at Anfield and reckons under Jurgen Klopp we can win titles.
“Hopefully I’ll get the chance to break that record soon,” Coutinho told the Echo.
“Liverpool is a fantastic club. I was received really well by everybody when I first arrived here. It’s got fantastic staff and fans and it has a huge level of ambition which is really exciting to see.
“I really think we’re returning to a period where we can achieve greatness and win titles. That’s the reason why I was attracted to stay here at Liverpool.
“Getting into the Champions League is very important for the club and obviously it’s our aim. All the games are like finals now if we are going to achieve it. There are still a lot of points available to us and we need to win as many as we can.”
With Manchester United and Everton drawing last night, the top four is completely in our own hands.
A win against Bournemouth tonight is clearly vital, as we we’ve actually won just one game without Mane in the starting XI this term.
That was against Plymouth in the FA Cup…
It’s time for Coutinho and his team-mates to prove we can do it in the Senegalese’s absence.
