Liverpool have a private jet waiting for their star Brazilian players after tonight’s World Cup Qualifier vs Paraguay. They will be rested and, barring unforeseen circumstances tonight, ready to go in the all important fixture at the weekend. In preparation for the big game, Coutinho spoke with the Premier League about how important it is.
The week before the game, you can’t wait to play and if you win, the level of joy you give to the fans is amazing. They’re the victories you always enjoy. The rivalry is like any derby – it’s intense. I’ve experienced these games both home and away and the intensity is equal with the fans. You’re always on TV, it’s one of the most difficult games and I don’t think this one will be any different.
It’s very important, obviously it’s our aim [to finish in the top four]. All the games are like finals and if we’re going to achieve our aim we need a lot of points.”
We can’t wait to see what he can do on Saturday.
