Coutinho has noticed that smashing the ball at or around De Gea means SAVE. Cheeky chip however. Stunning

Coutinho’s goal at Old Trafford was superb. I hadn’t seen a defender look so hopelessly lost since I watched Inception with Steven Taylor.

At half time, Philippe Coutinho has to re-lace his boots with only the finest of unicorn hair, woven together with rainbows. #MUFCvLFC

If Fellaini shrinks and I cut his hair maybe he could be my Coutinho?

Klopp had a little private partee with the LFC fans post- the fabulous Countinho goal. Utd have to score three more now due to away goals…
