Coutinho: Confident Reds are ready for Leicester

Philippe Coutinho senses that confidence has been restored in the Liverpool camp following a tough start to 2017, and the Brazilian is raring to go ahead of Monday’s trip to Leicester City.

The Reds will return to action at the King Power Stadium some 16 days after their last outing – an impressive 2-0 victory over Tottenham Hotspur at Anfield.

The dominant nature of their performance against Spurs represented a welcome boost for a Liverpool team who had won just one of their previous 10 matches since the turn of the year.

Coutinho revealed there has been a significant improvement in the mood within Jürgen Klopp’s squad over the last fortnight, and he wants them to use their display against Tottenham as a template for the remainder of the season.

“It was a very difficult and very important game, and we won,” the No.10 told

“We were coming from a winless run, a complicated moment. We lacked a little confidence and we have regained that confidence.

“The team started playing well again, the way we had played, so we have to look at this game as an example to follow for the next games.”

Coutinho admitted to feeling mildly frustrated at having to wait 16 days for another match following the win over Mauricio Pochettino’s men, but the 24-year-old explained that Liverpool have taken full advantage of the extra time available to them on the training pitch.
