‘Coutinho showed he’s worthy of world-class status’

Jürgen Klopp considered Philippe Coutinho’s performance in the Merseyside derby a demonstration of his ‘world-class credentials’.

The No.10 was hugely influential in Liverpool claiming a 3-1 victory over neighbours Everton on Saturday, restoring their lead at a crucial time in the first half and later setting up Divock Origi to seal the result.

With the injured Sadio Mane set to miss out on tonight’s clash with Bournemouth, the manager sees this game and those remaining in the season as more chances for the likes of Coutinho to take control.
