Philippe Coutinho scored a delightful brace to demolish defending Champions Chelsea at the Stamford Bridge. Coutinho, who didn’t score in his previous eight games before today also admitted that he knew he hasn’t been playing well, and was working hard to get his form back. The Brazilian star dedicated his two goals to Liverpool fans and thanked them for their incredible support.

“I am so happy to score those goals,” Coutinho told the ECHO. 

“It had been a long time since I last scored. I haven’t been playing so well but I knew I just had to keep working and things would change for me. That’s what I did.

“I kept going and I knew that good things would come. Hopefully I can go on to score many more goals. I’m most happy about the fact I was able to help the team to get the three points. 

“The support we got from the fans throughout the game was amazing. They are always there supporting us and we wanted to give something back. My goals and this win is for them.” 

Coutinho also thanked new boss Jurgen Klopp saying he wants the players to work hard, and they’re enjoying playing under him. 

Coutinho said: “The manager was pleased – he gave me a big hug! 

“Everyone in the squad is enjoying the football he asks from us. 

“He’s a manager who demands a lot of hard work. That’s what we try to do every day. We have to continue this way. 

“He is a manager who gives you confidence. We have had some difficult moments as a team but now we’re in a good way.

 “We have to keep it going.”
