Coutinho, who got injured during Liverpool's win against Sunderland in November, has missed the last 6 games. His absence saw the Reds struggle for a couple of games before Divock Origi proved an adequate replacement as Jurgen Klopp shuffled his resources admirably.

"He's very important but if only Adam was good at keeping the ball then we have a big problem. I saw no player who didn't do his job tonight. It was not easy. We could have done better, especially in the last 15 minutes -- 4-1 up, we ran with the ball still on fire and that makes not too much sense.
