Philippe Coutinho admits he needs to improve Liverpool goal tally

Coutinho Liverpool

The Brazilian enjoyed an impressive March, but knows he needs to improve.

Philippe Coutinho has admitted that he needs to improve his goalscoring tally for Liverpool, he has told the club’s official website.

The Brazilian is among they key players in the side, and has continued to flourish under Jurgen Klopp this season.

He enjoyed a fine March as he made four appearances and scored twice, the biggest of which was arguably against Manchester United in the Europa League.

That was only his tenth goal in 33 games in all all competitions this season though, and he admits that his goalscoring is an area he is looking to improve in.

“I know that in the position I play I have to create chances, score and that is something I have to improve,” he told liverpoolfc.com.

“I know I have to improve it. I hope I am getting better at it and that I am helping my teammates. Perhaps in that position [on the left], when I suddenly cut inside space opens up giving me the opportunity to try to score.”

“I hope I continue getting better, I am trying to learn from the coach and my teammates so I can play better and help them."

Coutinho’s lack of goals is a minor problem for Liverpool, with them needing more from a man who occupies such a vital area in the team.

It is arguably something Klopp has noticed as well, moving the Brazilian in the left wing role where there is arguably less pressure on him.

In fact the move has seen the Brazilian flourish, perhaps as a result of the decreased role he is now occupying in the side, and they will be hoping he can continue to impress starting with Borussia Dortmund on Thursday.
