Liverpool fans react on Twitter to Coutinho display v West Brom
By Dominic Toner
Philippe Coutinho played 90 minutes in the win against West Brom – and the Liverpool supporters were delighted with his performance on Twitter.
The Reds completed a 2-1 victory at Anfield on Saturday and bounced back from their disappointing goalless draw with Manchester United.
Two first-half goals from Sadio Mane and Coutinho gave the Merseyside club the advantage, but defender Gareth McAuley set up a nervous finish.
Coutinho, 24, scored an impressive individual goal by driving the ball low into the net, after he had manoeuvred away from two sliding defenders.
The result means Liverpool climbed to second in the table and are only behind leaders Arsenal on goal difference.
