Reports are out claiming that Liverpool star Philippe Coutinho has urged his teammates not to dwell on the disappointment against Arsenal.
Many have written Liverpool’s chances of finishing in the top four this season following their crushing 4-1 loss against Arsenal at the Emirates Stadium on Saturday and with the Reds currently seven points off of fourth place Manchester City, it is not surprising to see why.
Despite the setback though, midfielder Coutinho has urged his side not to let their heads down and stated his belief that the Reds can still recover in the final seven games of the season.
“Arsenal played very well, as they always do, and we did not do the things we have to do to win, the things we have done in previous games, like pressing the ball well,” Coutinho said.
“That was the difference between the two sides. It was a very difficult game but we have to pick our heads up and keep believing. We have to keep going (for fourth). We have more games to come and lots of things can still happen.”
