Coutinho issues warning to his Liverpool team-mates ahead of Chelsea clash

Philippe Coutinho has told his Liverpool team-mates they must forget about their recent run of results and turn up against Chelsea at Anfield on Tuesday.

The Reds welcome the Premier League leaders to Merseyside on the back of three home defeats in a row and with just one win in eight games in all competitions.

Liverpool have been dumped out of two cup competitions in less than a week, but could get their season back on track by completing the double over Chelsea.

Chelsea have been beaten just once since October 26 and Coutinho admitted he and his team-mates have to rally.

‘We have to lift ourselves for Chelsea, that is very important.

‘We have another opportunity straight away to bounce back, and it is a good opportunity, a big game against Chelsea.

‘That is it,’ he said.

‘We have a few days to prepare everything, and to go again and that is what we must do now.’

Coutinho signed a new five-year deal at the club last week and insisted he is not worried by his side’s current form.

Liverpool were being tipped as title contenders this season before the turn of the year, but Coutinho says he has no regrets.

‘I am happy to sign, and I would like to say it is not about one week, no matter how bad that is, it is about the future with this squad,’ he said.

‘Yes it has been a bad week, but we are looking beyond that. Of course we believe we can win titles under this manager – we are confident that will happen.

‘Like I said before I have signed because the manager is a winner, and everyone believes in him.

‘I believe in what he does, and everyone inside the dressing room believes he will take this team to titles – that is why I signed a new contract, and that is what we want to do.’
