After a sub-par performance against Manchester United a lot was expected from Liverpool as they faced West Brom, and Jurgen Klopp’s men did not disappoint.

The front three, consisting of Philippe Coutinho, Roberto Firmino and Sadio Mane, showed the fluidity we’ve come to expect this season with all three having a hand in the two goals Liverpool scored before half time.

Mane scored the first from Firmino’s cross, after a delightful dummy from Coutinho, while the little magician scored the Reds’ second after being played in by Mane.

But he didn’t just score, Coutinho stripped the West Brom defence of their dignity, faking to go left before cutting inside and leaving two defenders in a pile on the floor, before finishing with his right. Or, as football supporters love to say…


Coutinho sent those defenders for a hotdog. 😂

Did West Brom defender Craig Dawson have to pay to get back in to Anfield after Coutinho sent him the wrong way?
