The Brazilian bagged an assist in the game at Turf Moor.
Liverpool have had a tough first half of the season but after their recent performance against Arsenal fans had a bit of optimism going into the most recent fixture against Burnley away.
However, Sean Dyche's men have also been in good form recently and were ready to give Liverpool a real test at Turf Moor.
They certainly did just that and in the end it was a moment of magic from Philippe Coutinho which ended up separating the sides.
The Brazilian struggled for much of the start of the season but he was excellent in the recent draw with Arsenal, scoring a goal in the game.
Today the creative midfielder again showed off his ability to play almost the unthinkable pass. The ball bouncing through Coutinho knew that Raheem Sterling was running through on goal.
He swiftly switched the ball, without looking, on the half volley through to Sterling who rounded Tom Heaton to give Liverpool what proved to be the winning goal.
It was a fantastic pass from the former Inter Milan man and he deserves all the plaudits he has been getting on Twitter...
What a ball from Coutinho. Brilliant. Excellent finish from Sterling as well. #YNWA— matt stewart (@stewbucs) December 26, 2014
