Brazilian forward, 20 year old Philippe Coutinho, has been inspired by playing with the Liverpool talents of Luis Suarez and Steven Gerrard. "Suarez is phenomenal - he is otherworldly," said the £8.5million signing from Inter Milan.

"The goals he scores, the way he gives himself to the is very important and I am very happy to be able to play next to him. "I think it's the way he gives himself to the team. He doesn't let one ball go - even if it's the hardest one.

"He fights all the time to win and I admire that in a player. I think it is one of his strong points.

"I'm not only happy to play next to him, but also other players like Steven, who is phenomenal too. These are guys from another world!"
