Captain on the night, Philippe Coutinho was at the center of all the action as Liverpool ripped Spartak Moscow’s defence to shreds on Tuesday.
The Brazilian midfielder scored an impressive hat-trick, taking his tally to 5 goals in 5 UCL games this campaign. His performance midweek exemplified why Liverpool fought so hard to hold onto him in the summer.
The Brazilian was a menace for the Spartak defenders all night and pulled off a devastating run (seen below) during a moment in the game.
After receiving the ball on the left wing from Milner, Coutinho was quickly closed down by two Spartak defenders but the Brazilian made quick work of them and left them smelling grass with a scintillating run.
