Philippe Coutinho helped Liverpool banish the painful memories of their humiliating defeat against Stoke City on the final day of last season, by scoring a stunning late winner at the Britannia Stadium.
The Reds had looked like they may be in for a frustrating afternoon against Mark Hughes’ men, as they failed to convert their pressure into a goal. But, the Brazilian was finally able to break the deadlock with a fantastic strike from outside the area with just four minutes of normal time to go.
Following a summer where plenty of signings were made to help get over the 6-1 defeat last season, it was one of the men who was on the pitch that day in May that proved to be the match-winner.
