By Joe Nelson
Philippe Coutinho has been named as the Premier League top performer so far this season by football statistics site Squawka.
The Liverpool maestro put in another masterclass yesterday as the Reds romped home to a 5-1 victory at home to Hull City.
The 24-year-old was once again at the heart of everything good at Anfield, scoring one and assisting another as Jurgen Klopp’s men continued their dominant start to the season.
The stat from Squawka shows that Coutinho is currently topping the the performance board with 321 this season, with Kevin De Bruyne second with 280.

Coutinho also completed 100% of his take-ons in the win against the Tigers, along with registering four chances created.
Liverpool’s only loss this season came in an uncharacteristic home display against Burnley, in which they ran out 2-0 losers.
The rest of their showing have been anything but unconvincing, as they have beaten the likes of Arsenal, Chelsea and champions Leicester City already, along with a draw against Tottenham.
Jurgen Klopp’s men currently sit fourth in the table, level on points with the Gunners and just a goal behind in difference.
Their next game comes away to a struggling Swansea City side on October 1st.
