Liverpool fans will be preparing themselves for a huge clash with Porto later this evening and will be confident of beating the Portuguese giants. It’s far from the biggest clash of the week though, as tomorrow sees Barcelona face Manchester United, and former Red Philippe Coutinho has been talking about how much the game means to him.
Philippe Coutinho has vowed to dump Manchester United out of the Champions League.
“I know that games against Manchester United are special. I learned what they meant during my time at Liverpool when we lived it so intensely with the fans.”https://t.co/7rltdUNL6I

Coutinho will be desperate to try and overcome Manchester United with Barcelona, and his recent comments, that you can read in The Mirror, have been met with a positive reception by the Kopites, who would equally love to see Barcelona dump the Red Devils out of the competition. The Little Brazilian has vowed to make that happen too, and he knows all too well how to dump United out of Europe.
Back in the 2015/16 season, the Brazilian produced a piece of magic to knock Manchester United out of the Europa League when he scored at Old Trafford, and the Reds will want to see him do it again tomorrow. Although, the winner of Barcelona vs Manchester United will face the winner of Liverpool vs Porto in the semi-finals of the Champions League, meaning Coutinho and the Reds could see each other very soon.

The Kopites would love to see Coutinho and Luis Suarez double up and down United as former Reds, even it means the pair will be making a return to Anfield.
