Oh my, Coutinho.
Given some room by Newcastle midfielder and ex-Liverpool man Jonjo Shelvey, Liverpool’s Brazilian scored a gorgeous 30th minute goal to give his Reds a 1-0 lead at St. James Park.

Coutinho moved to his right from 25 yards out from goal and curled a near post shot past a flying Elliot and into the top corner.
It’s just the third Premier League match of the season for the Reds’ former wantaway, and he has two goals and an assist.
Unfortunately for Liverpool, it had an issue at the back end to allow Newcastle back into the fray.
