Coutinho fakes out two defenders, scores great goal vs. West Brom

2-0!

Liverpool have opened up a two-goal lead against West Brom in the first half. After Sadio Mane finished off a brilliant team goal earlier in the half, Philippe Coutinho has given the Reds another one.

After receiving a throughball on the right flank, Coutinho cut onto his right leaving two West Brom defenders in his dust, and finished with a curling strike to the near post.

It’s the Brazilian magician’s fourth goal of the season and it’s a big one. If Liverpool get the three points today they would temporarily go top of the table.

A great start for the team today against a respectable opponent. They’ve looked the better side throughout the first half. Can they keep it up?
