Coutinho Liverpool

The Brazilian put in another impressive display but will have been disappointed in some areas in the draw with Tottenham.

Philippe Coutinho once again showed the big influence he has on this Liverpool side with his performance in the 0-0 draw with Tottenham on Saturday.

With new manager Jurgen Klopp observing from the touchline for his first game in charge, those players available at White Hart Lane were sure to have been keen to make an impression from the start.

Coutinho was one of those, as he once again looked to be the creative spark that could get Liverpool the goals they needed.

We decided to take a look at his stats to see how he performed in the game.

Starting with the Brazilian’s biggest asset, his passing, Coutinho was on fine form again in that area as he enjoyed a pass success of 70% throughout the 87 minutes he played.

Similarly, his passing in the final third was also impressive as he enjoyed a success rate of 52% in this area, showing his desire to be a danger in the opposition’s defensive areas.

He will however, have been disappointed with his inability to create much for his side, with him registering just one attempted assist throughout the game and failing to create a single big chance either.

He also only managed to register one shot at Hugo Lloris during the game, another thing he will have been particularly disappointed with given his ability to grab important goals in recent season.

He did however enjoy success when it came to his dribbling, with him enjoying a 66% success rate in that particular area. In fact, his touch throughout the game was impeccable as he enjoyed 63 touches throughout, enjoying a 96% success rate, an impressive performance to say the least.

Another impressive performance from Coutinho then, although he will have been disappointed to have not had a bigger impact on the game. Liverpool and Klopp will be hoping they can improve in future given how important he is to the side.
