They turned the game around in the second half for Liverpol at Stoke City last weekend, they both scored and generally had a massive impact on how the team behaved with them in the lineup, but Jurgen Klopp says that wonder Brazilians Philippe Coutinho and Roberto Firmino simply cannot do everything by themselves.
It’s very important that players can play together, but if they are only two then it’s pretty difficult. Gini Wijnaldum said it after the game, I think – yes, they had a big impact on the game, that’s 100 per cent true, but the whole team played better in the second half
the Liverpool manager said in a Press conference earlier today, indirectly calling the rest of his players to up their game, catching up with their Brazilian team-mates.
That they are really, really good friends – maybe best friends – it helps us a lot… That they play together in the Brazil national team helps us… That they are both so unbelievably skilled helps us a lot. But, again, if they tried to do it alone… no chance
the German manager added, talking about Coutinho and Firmino. Liverpool are traveling to West Brom this weekend, and Klopp made it perfectly clear how difficult he considers this game to be, by saying
the challenge of West Brom is big and has all our respect and all our concentration.
