Liverpool midfielder Philippe Coutinho has set his sights on winning a personal double this season by grabbing the Premier League trophy with Liverpool and then making the Brazil World Cup squad, according to Sky Sports.

Liverpool are currently leading the Premier League by five points and look set to claim their first league title since 1990.

If the Reds managed to beat Chelsea at Anfield on Sunday they would all but seal their first title for 24 years and Coutinho is hoping to impress in this crucial run-in.

"The players know how important these remaining games are, and we will fight and do our best on the pitch to make winning the league happen," said Coutinho.

'It is a very special moment, with Liverpool going for the title and my country staging the World Cup. Don't forget the saying "Brazilians never lose hope" - I still hope to play for Brazil at the World Cup. This could be a very special two months."

The 21-year-old moved to Liverpool from Inter Milan in January last year and has been instrumental in the Merseyside club’s style of play.

The young Brazilian believes that he fits in well at the club and that being a Liverpool player has helped developed his game.

"Moving to Europe has added an extra dimension to my game. At Inter, Rafa Benitez changed my mentality. He made me more of a team player and encouraged me to move the ball more quickly and get more involved,” added Coutinho.

"Now, with Liverpool, I am moving faster still and thinking even more quickly. It just felt right for me here from the outset.

"The team have been playing with a great deal of freedom in attack and that has helped me adapt so easily.”
