Completly different team

The German manager decided to change almost the entire team, with nine changes from the starting eleven that played against Manchester United in the EPL on Sunday, with the star of the team, Philippe Coutinho featuring in the team. It was his first start since returning back from his injury, that he have picked up in November. And it was the Brazilian maestro, who delivered a fantastic cross from the corner to his national teammate – Lucas Leiva. The defensive midfielder headed the ball into the net in the 18th minute of the game. It was a huge moment for him, as he couldn’t score a single goal for almost six years.

You might be disappointed if you thought that Liverpool will completely dominate this game. The visitors created their own chances and the best one came in the 33th minute of the game, when Oscar Threlkeld failed to deliver the perfect ball for his teammate, who would have had a clear chance to level the scoring in the first half.

'Boring, boring Liverpool'

Liverpool had the chance to double the scoring, but Divock Origi missed the penalty-shot and the game ended with 1-0 result. #Football
