Jamie Carragher’s analysis of Liverpool 2 – Sunderland 1: ‘Coutinho was key’ [Video]

Liverpool pulled off a big result last night, not so much in beating lowly Sunderland, but by the manner in which they achieved it, really digging deep to grind out the 3 points.

And Jamie Carragher was in no doubt as to the key man behind the Reds’ win: Philippe Coutinho, who Carra showed was instrumental in all of Liverpool’s good attacking play, as well as being at the source of both goals.

Niall Quinn concurred, comparing him to Man City’s David Silva; high praise indeed, but surely such comparisons shouldn’t be such a big deal when talking about Coutinho?
