After being sidelined for the start of the campaign the 25-year-old has found his magical touch once again, as portrayed by his hat-trick against Spartak Moscow.

Coutinho will leave Liverpool in the not too distant future, that much seems simple fact at this stage. The Brazilian has netted nine goals so far this term, further providing six for his team-mates across all competitions.

"I am at Liverpool and I always do my best when I have the opportunity to play, respecting the jersey and the supporters", Coutinho told reporters.

Barcelona are interested in recruiting Coutinho in the near future and see him as a flawless successor to Andres Iniesta who is now entering the latter years of his career.

"I do not know how the future is going to be", he admitted.

Liverpool's marquee player Philippe Coutinho was the subject of intense interest from Barcelona last summer, however a move never materialised in the end.

"Since I have stayed, I have played with will and desire". I don't know if there will be an offer.

The Brazil worldwide has been largely deployed on the left of a front three alongside Roberto Firmino, Mohamed Salah and Sadio Mane.

With Sadio Mane, Roberto Firmino, Philippe Coutinho and Mohamed Salah up front, the Reds have one of the most exciting front line's in world football, and they are going to town in the Champions League this season.

"It was a special night due to the result and because I had the armband in such an important game playing for a club like Liverpool", he said. From where I see it, he is more comfortable inside, but the good thing about this player is that he can play in several positions. The Brazilian wants to depart Anfield, and it will be the best option for both the player and the club to part ways happily.
