‘Once a red, always a red’: Liverpool support revel in Coutinho’s dream return as Man United’s top-4 hopes dented

The Liverpool faithful have been in fine voice across social media this evening, in response to the remarkable comeback efforts of Philippe Coutinho in Aston Villa’s meeting with Manchester United.

Coutinho secures share of the spoils

The final Premier League fixture of the day of course played out a short time ago.

After Manchester City took another step towards the title courtesy of a 1-0 downing of Thomas Tuchel’s Chelsea, attentions turned towards the battle for a top-4 berth, as the aforementioned United made the trip to Villa Park.

Ralf Rangnick’s side of course got the better of the Claret and Blue just days ago, triumphing by a goal to nil to book their spot in the 4th round of the FA Cup.

To say that things did not go quite as smoothly this evening, though, would be putting it lightly.

The Red Devils actually surged into a 2-goal advantage courtesy on the evening, finding the net either side of the interval courtesy of the rejuvenated Bruno Fernandes:

Aston Villa, however, simply refused to lie down, levelling things up courtesy of Jacob Ramsey, before the moment of the weekend was forthcoming with 82 minutes on the clock.

After playing a key role in the buildup to Ramsey’s effort, Philippe Coutinho, lining out on his Claret and Blue debut off the bench, arrived at the back post to slot home from close range, sparking pandemonium in the stands at Villa Park:

Steven Gerrard’s men, from here, held on for a deserved share of the spoils, putting an end to the skid on the back of a trio of successive defeats across all competitions.
