Despite his Barçelona struggles, Liverpool miss Philippe Coutinho’s creativity
Liverpool’s title tilt has come under some serious pressure after a draw away at arch rivals Everton and Danny Murphy feels they are missing Coutinho.
Murphy was asked: « Is the difference between Manchester City and Liverpool at the moment City’s ability to open up tight defences with smart incisive passing and finishing in the box?
Do Liverpool come up short on a David Silva sort of player? »
And he replied with: “I think if you ask Liverpool supporter if they would like that kind of player back ie. Philippe Coutinho then yes obviously.
The Brazilian is currently going through a poor run of form and has lost his place in the best XI at FC Barcelona.
Liverpool have only scored once in their last four matches, a detail which has seen Manchester City exploit the title race in the Premier League.
