Liverpool fans react as Philippe Coutinho shows why Barcelona want him

Liverpool returned to the top four of the Premier League on Boxing Day after thrashing bottom club Swansea City 3-0 at Anfield.

Philippe Coutinho opened the scoring in just the sixth minute with a sweet finish from outside of the area, and it was his strike that set the tone for the rest of the game as Jurgen Klopp’s men ran riot to hand Reds fans the perfect Christmas present.

The Brazilian has been absolutely sensational this season and is currently proving why Barcelona are reportedly lining up a move for him in January, which is being reported by Spanish media (via TheExpress). The midfielder is valued at £58.5m by transfermarkt.com.
