Philippe Coutinho’s concentration was the key to Liverpool’s “brilliant” No. 10 bagging a crucial brace in the 3-1 victory over Chelsea, according to Jurgen Klopp.
The Brazilian turned the tide in his team’s favor at Stamford Bridge on Saturday when he shimmied around his marker and found the left corner of Asmir Begovic’s goal with a precise curler.
“Phil is a very good example of our situation,” Klopp told LiverpoolFC.com postgame. “He is brilliant — everybody knows he is brilliant.
“But there are moments in your life where you have to work for it to look easy. It wasn’t easy, but he stood in the game and was concentrated.
“He had some passes he is able to play much better. But then he was concentrated, he helped us and made the difference. That’s very important.”
