Reds fans here in the Tavern share mixed emotions, after asserting Champions League dominance in the form of a player who may just be in his last month with the club.
Our fans here in the Tavern are still struggling to shut their jaw after the jaw-dropping 7-0 win over fellow Group E outfit Spartak Moscow last night, resulting in a guaranteed first-seed spot with an unbeaten streak still intact.
Indeed, after Philippe Coutinho’s sublime hat-trick in their last outing in the Champions League, fans have been over the moon with the response that the attacker has given since settling back down with the club, and hope that there are many more memories to be made with the player.
However, with goals flooding in, it looks as if he’ll continue to be at the forefront of a whole load of ongoing speculation, after being constantly harried by Spanish giants Barcelona in a desperate attempt to replace fellow countryman Neymar over the past 6 months.
Of course, after what was such an inspired performances by their number 10 he does receive the match-ball, with Liverpool’s Twitter account sharing a sense of humour and appreciation as Coutinho appears to hide the ball behind his back while being congratulated by the jubilant Jurgen Klopp.
No need to hide the match ball!

Thats how a #LFC captain should be…scoring goals, assisting, inspiring your teammates and not keep making sideway backward passes, running around like a headless chicken….And the most importantly u do the talking on the pitch, not before or after the game ends!!!

Phil is the heartbeat of the side. From obscurity at Inter to world class at Liverpool – he is simply brilliant!
