Photo: The image that says it all about Philippe Coutinho’s popularity

Coutinho Liverpool

Liverpool lost against Manchester City in the League Cup final on Sunday evening.

Philippe Coutinho is one of the best players at Liverpool at the moment, and he is very popular among the fans.

The photo above proves that.

The 23-year-old Brazil international attacking midfielder is not very consistent, but he does turn on the style and create moments of magic from time to time.

It was the former Inter Milan man who gave Liverpool a ray of hope of winning the League Cup final at London’s Wembley Stadium on Sunday evening.

Coutinho scored in the 83rd minute to make it 1-1, as the final went into extra time and eventually penalties. The attacker, though, failed to convert his kick in the shootout, as City won 3-1.

Despite that, it is unlikely that Coutinho will lose his popularity among the Liverpool fans.

With Jurgen Klopp’s side aiming to win the Europa League this season, the Brazilian will be a key player for the team between now and the end of the season.

Coutinho has scored five goals and created 28 chances in 18 Premier League appearances for Liverpool so far this campaign.
