The Reds are looking good for a top four spot and have been tipped to join the title race after a good run of form in the Premier League.
The form of strikers Luis Suarez and Daniel Sturridge has been a major part of their success this season but Coutinho’s addition in midfield often goes unnoticed.
The 21 year old is hoping to make the Brazil squad for their home World Cup this summer but qualifying for the Champions League is his main thought at present.
“The matches against Arsenal and Everton must be our reference so we can keep it up in all matches and sustain the same level until the very end,” Coutinho said.
“We want to be back in the Champions League and to be in contention for the title. The league is very difficult as it has big clubs. There’s massive competition in the league here. All matches are very difficult.
“We’re in a fairly good position at the moment but there are 12 matches to be played. There’s still much to happen and we’re hoping to keep up on this path.”
