“Messi would be proud” – Liverpool fans ecstatic with star’s magnificent performance and make unbelievable comparison

Philippe Coutinho starred as Liverpool beat Bournemouth 4-0 with fans comparing him to Barcelona star Lionel Messi.

The Brazilian opened the scoring for Liverpool today on the 20th minute with an outstanding individual effort.

The Liverpool number ten picked up the ball just inside Bournemouth’s half before running directly at his opposing players as if they didn’t exist.

Coutinho then calmly slotted past Asmir Begovic to give Liverpool the lead. The goal understandably produced comparisons to Lionel Messi with the Argentine’s reputation for scoring ridiculous individual efforts.

Liverpool went on to score three more goals with Coutinho himself turning provider in the second-half as he produced a superb cross for his international team-mate Roberto Firmino.

Mohammed Salah also caught the attention of fans after scoring his 20th goal of the season in all competitions. The Egyptian has risen to establish himself as not only one of the finest summer signings in world football but also as one of the most talented stars in the Premier League.

Praise for both Coutinho and Salah understandably came pouring in after the full-time whistle.
