Liverpool endured a disappointing evening against Newcastle United at St. James’ Park, as they failed to pick up all three points from the Premier League encounter.

The Reds headed into the match on Sunday evening as favourites, but the Merseyside outfit had to settle for a 1-1 draw.

While the performance of Jurgen Klopp’s side against Newcastle was not exactly great, there was one moment of pure magic.

Philippe Coutinho scored for Liverpool in the 29th minute with a superb curling effort from 25 yards.

It was one of the best goals scored in the Premier League so far this season, and Leicester City winger Demarai Gray was impressed.

The England Under-21 international described Coutinho as “unbelievable” on social networking site Twitter.

Interestingly, the 21-year-old was linked with a move to Liverpool in the summer transfer window, with The Mirror reporting of the Reds’ interest in the youngster in July 2017.

Gray has been on the books of Leicester since January 2016 when he joined from Birmingham City for a transfer fee reported by BBC Sport to be worth £3.7 million.
