Coutinho Liverpool

The Brazilian was impressive again as his side progressed in the Europa League.

Liverpool midfielder Philippe Coutinho was in fine form at Old Trafford as his side drew 1-1 with Manchester United.

The two sides met in the second leg of their Europa League last 16 clash, with the Reds holding a 2-0 lead from the game at Anfield.

An Antony Martial penalty made things interesting however, as United looked to make their way back into the tie.

However, Coutinho then showed his quality as he beat Guillermo Varela before delicately chipping past David De Gea to draw the sides level and ultimately put the game beyond the home side.

It was all round impressive display from the Brazilian, who showed he could do it in a big game when his side needed him most.
