It certainly looks as if Brendan Rodgers was right to rest the Brazilian on Thursday night…
Philippe Coutinho looks to be in great form once again today. He was the stand-out player for Liverpool during the first-half of their Premier League clash with Manchester City, with Reds fans on Twitter delighted by his performance.
Here’s what social media had to say:
Coutinho is a baller, I love watching him

Feel Liverpool need a 2nd. Playing well with Coutinho looking as sharp as I've seen him this season.

Coutinho dominating the best RB in the league as well.

On days like this Coutinho is just sublime to watch.

Not sure it it's actually possible to not smile when Coutinho plays….just the kind of player who makes you smile every time. #LFC

Coutinho is unreal, Sterling? Bloody fantastic.

Coutinho absolutely running the show here. City can't get near him. He is the reason Liverpool are ahead.

Coutinho is Liverpool's best signing since Sami Hyypia. @LFC

Which goal was better, Henderson v City or Coutinho v Southampton? #LFC
