Coutinho is a little magician capable of playing on either flank or through the middle, he has brilliant technique, hat full of tricks and a wicked long shot.
He scored three goals in 12 games since arriving at Camp Nou and with the brilliance of Mohamed Salah for Liverpool meant they haven't felt his departure as heavily as one would have expected.
