Watch Coutinho out-smart Brighton with sublime free-kick goal

Posted by

Philippe Coutinho produced another sublime performance on Saturday to help inspire a 5-1 win for Liverpool away to Brighton

The No.10 wrapped up the points late on as he made it 4-1 with a genius low free-kick beneath the wall, before seeing his shot headed in by Lewis Dunk for an own-goal to make it five.

It proved to be a Brazilian masterclass, with fellow countryman Roberto Firmino having registered a clinical brace after Emre Can’s towering header had put Liverpool ahead in the first half.

Jurgen Klopp’s men dominated throughout and displayed no signs of cracking under the pressure when Glenn Murray pulled a goal back for Brighton from the spot to make it 3-1.

The Reds now boast a record of eight games unbeaten as they continue their revival after a tricky start to the campaign.

Mohamed Salah was once again in dominant form, posing as a driving force behind an exhibition of Liverpool’s counterattacking expertise.

Another bonus was Klopp not having to call on Sadio Mane, who was given another rest after his standout performance in the midweek victory against Stoke.

Here’s a look at Coutinho’s classy free-kick…
