Porto midfielder Felipe: Liverpool selling Coutinho good for us

Porto midfielder Felipe believes they've been boosted in their Champions League clash with Liverpool.

Felipe says they're happy knowing Philippe Coutinho has left for Barcelona.

"It's going to be a big duel, everybody's expecting a great game, there's no easy game in the Champions League, we're expecting a lot of good things and we know we have every chance to win. There's no favourites," he said.

"Liverpool have great players, (Mohamed) Salah is in a good phase, but football is much more than that, it's not set, there's improvisation.

"Coutinho's departure was good for us, but Liverpool do not depend on just one player."
