Philippe Coutinho has revealed that he is relieved to end his slump for Liverpool this season after a brace against Chelsea.
Coutinho ended his long wait for a premier league goal, when he curled in the equaliser against Chelsea.
And he bettered that with another goal in the 74th minute engineering a comeback against Chelsea, with Benteke scoring the third goal and getting Klopp’s first win in the topflight.
“I am so happy to score those goals,” he told the Liverpool Echo.
“It had been a long time since I last scored. I haven’t been playing so well but I knew I just had to keep working and things would change for me. That’s what I did.
“I kept going and I knew that good things would come. Hopefully I can go on to score many more goals. I’m most happy about the fact I was able to help the team to get the three points.
“The support we got from the fans throughout the game was amazing. They are always there supporting us and we wanted to give something back. My goals and this win is for them.”
Coutinho believes Klopp has restored confidence to the Liverpool squad after succeeding Brendan Rodgers in the Anfield hotseat.
He added: “The manager was pleased – he gave me a big hug!
“Everyone in the squad is enjoying the football he asks from us.
“He’s a manager who demands a lot of hard work. That’s what we try to do every day. We have to continue this way.
“He is a manager who gives you confidence. We have had some difficult moments as a team but now we’re in a good way.”
