Liverpool’s Philippe Coutinho has undoubtedly been the best player in the Premier League this season. And with six goals and six assists so far, the Brazilian has been instrumental in leading Liverpool’s charge to the summit.
The 24 year old carried that sublime form onto the international stage, starring against Argentine and most recently against Peru last night.
While he may not have got on the score-sheet against Peru, he certainly looked more than a handful for the Peru defenders as they struggled to get to grips with his movement and skills.
Coutinho did the roulette twice, in two minutes. He’s full of ideas. Always looking to create something promising each time he’s on the ball

In one such instance, Coutinho totally left two Peru defenders for dead with an exquisite roulette before passing the ball wide. Not content with it, the Liverpool man pulled off another roulette a minute later.
With such wonderful performances, it really is then no surprise to see him linked with the likes of Barcelona and Real Madrid in recent times.
Watch both the roulettes and other Coutinho highlights from the game below:
