Liverpool’s emphatic win over Manchester City on Saturday afternoon saw exceptional performances all over the pitch.

Their attacking trio of Adam Lallana, Philippe Coutinho and Roberto Firmino were crucial to the win, as they tormented Manuel Pellegrini’s defence throughout.

Coutinho was arguably the star among those three, as he once again put in a top display against a big rival, as he did against Chelsea several weeks ago.
