Philippe Coutinho just got silly.

Coutinho then left Guillermo Varela in the dust at dribbled at United goalkeeper David De Gea. Given the keep’s performance over two legs, it was going to take something special to beat him.

This is something special.

HT: Man United 1, Liverpool 1 (agg. 1-3). This beautiful run and finish from Coutinho puts Reds in driving seat.
