      I just hope he stays beyond this season. I just hope we didn't promise him he could move after this season to calm him down or whatever. He has contract till 2022 and he's a key player.

      So key that you gave Mignolet MOTM.

      Makes sense

      Because Migs saved the game with his penalty stopper eventually. No matter what happened before and who did what not, if it was no Migs it's a draw or worse and the world would look darker.

      'Leaked' emails suggest Coutinho would have earned £100M over 5 years at Barca. http://www.dailyrecord.co.uk/sport/football/liverpool-told-barcelona-stop-harassing-11223989

      I'd be f***in raging too if my employers cost me that contract

      Steven Gerrard has revealed Philippe Coutinho was so good in training that he told him to "stay away" from him.

      The Brazilian midfielder is returning to form following his return to the Liverpool side.

      Coutinho saw a move to Barcelona fail to materialise over the summer after the Anfield club refused to sell him.

      The 25-year-old scored his first goal of the season in his side's 3-2 win over Leicester on Sunday.

      And former Liverpool captain Gerrard, who is now a pundit on BT Sport, said: "He's impossible to defend against; when I used to train with him I’d hate it when I was on the opposition five-a-side team.

      "I wouldn't go near him and sometimes i told him to keep away from me because he can embarrass you. If he stands you up he can go both ways.

      "He's got such a low centre of gravity, he's so sharp, so quick and he's two or three steps ahead of defenders, he's so, so clever."

      Coutinho scored Liverpool's second against the Foxes before Jürgen Klopp's men survived a late fightback - and a missed penalty - to secure a vital three points.

      With the way things have gone over the past few weeks do you guys still feel him leaving next summer is still a formality?

      Time will tell gents.

      There's obviously been discussions with Phil and his people that he's got back in line.

      I don't think it's impossible he moves in January.

      I think there's the SLIM possibility that he could stay if the fan base welcomes him back and the teams does something great. I would love for him to stay, especially after you see the quality he brings our side yesterday. With Mane coming back into the fold who knows what this attack can do, especially with ALL their pieces (if Kietea comes in January and Lallana gets healthy soon). Thinking of our attack in January got me like   :aaliverpool2xt1:

      I basically feel the same. He will move to Barca next summer. In all honesty lets help things work for him the way they worked for Suraz. He plays AWESOME to improve his value for him and us and he helps the team reach new heights.

      Saw that too somewhere. Hope just bollox.

      F**k sake. Just won't go away.

      Do we need another firm statement to put it to bed. Again. That there's no sale in Jan.

      Seeing that free-kick fly in, you know what we'd be missing :(

      Sadly I have to agree buddy. Barca (or anyone) throw down a big offer and he's gone.

      If I'm being honest I believe Oxlade-Chamberlain was bought to mitigate that eventuality - what with him really being a central midfield playmaker and all. 😕

      Please to f**k that I'm wrong on both counts. 😯😯

      In the last 2 games he's proved the difference.
      A player who almost left!
      And who likely will leave soon.
      Naby is en-route apparently - but if we loose Phil, that's not even enough to replace him.

      Don't want to be dramatic, but without Phil, think we loose our direction ... unless we drastically ramp up/speed up our recruitment of quality players, and invest in some depth.

      Much like Mane, Coutinho is indisputable gilt edged quality. Other players we can discuss and argue about, but our best two players stand out like an absolute sore thumb. Of course when he goes Phil will be a massive miss, we have nobody who can do what he can do. A great signing he was.

      We'd be in plenty worse shape right now if he had.

      Big games, big players.
