Liverpool's title tilt has come under some serious pressure after a draw away at arch rivals Everton and Danny Murphy feels they are missing Coutinho.
Murphy was asked: "Is the difference between City and Liverpool at the moment City’s ability to open up tight defences with smart incisive passing and finishing in the box? Do Liverpool lack a David Silva kind of player?”
And he replied with: “I think if you ask Liverpool supporter if they would like that kind of player back ie. Coutinho then yes of course.
The Brazilian is currently going through a poor run of form and has lost his place in the best XI at FC Barcelona. Liverpool have only scored once in their last four matches, a stat which has seen Manchester City take advantage of the title race in the Premier League.
