Philippe Coutinho doubled Aston Villa’s lead against Manchester City to give former club Liverpool a hope of securing the Premier League title.
Matty Cash opened the scoring for Aston Villa with a bullet header in the first half. Manchester City continued to push, but a bit of magic from Coutinho allowed Villa to double their lead.
With Liverpool pushing to beat City to the Premier League title, Coutinho did his former club a huge favour.

He may no longer be a Liverpool player, but that goal could be just as important as any he scored for his former club.
