‘Coutinho and Firmino are fantastic, but they don’t do it alone’

13th April 2017

Philippe Coutinho and Roberto Firmino cannot make the kind of ‘fantastic’ impact they did at Stoke City without the help of their teammates, Jürgen Klopp has explained.

The Brazilian duo helped overturn a one-goal deficit at the bet365 Stadium last weekend after being introduced from the bench at the outset of the second half.

Coutinho levelled the score with a cool finish and Firmino then secured all three points for the Reds with a sensational blast into the roof of the net moments later.

Klopp is delighted that Liverpool can enjoy the benefits of the forwards’ close connection on and off the pitch, but at his pre-match press conference on Thursday took time to highlight how the overall team performance allows them to flourish.

“It’s very important that players can play together, but if they are only two then it’s pretty difficult still,” the manager said ahead of the trip to West Bromwich Albion.

“Gini Wijnaldum said it after the game, I think – yes, they had a big impact on the game, that’s 100 per cent true, but the whole team played better in the second half.
