Coutinho highlights area of his game he needs to improve

Liverpool midfielder Philippe Coutinho has singled out the area of his game he feels he needs to improve.

Liverpool playmaker Philippe Coutinho has been quoted by Liverpool’s website suggesting the area he feels he needs to improve.

The Brazilian is looking to push on and improve the finishing aspect of his game as he aims for more goals before the end of the season.

“I have not improved yet. I scored a few goals last month but I need to improve,” he said.

“I have this ambition, this objective of improving finishing. In the position I play, I need to score goals to help the team and create plays.”

Coutinho is one of the most talented and creative players that Brendan Rodgers has available in his current squad.

He has two goals in his last six games for the Reds and it’s encouraging that he’s showing such an obvious willingness and desire to improve and make a difference for the team.

Liverpool are still chasing a place in the top four by the end of the season, though they are under pressure following defeat to Manchester United before the international break.

For the side to close the gap, the number of threats across the attack has to be numerous, increasing the difficulty for Liverpool’s opposition in terms of the players coming at them.

Things don’t get any easier for Liverpool because straight away after the international break, the Reds face a match against Arsenal with the Gunners in superb form and looking to improve their own chances of a place in the top four.
