Stunning Philippe Coutinho Highlights Vs Leeds Prove Aston Villa Star Is Back To His 'World-Class' Best
| Last updated
Coutinho was reunited with former Liverpool teammate Steven Gerrard in the January transfer window after Villa signed him on loan in a sensational swoop.
Villa have the option to make the move permanent for the 29-year-old Brazilian playmaker for a fee of £33m at the end of the season.
Coutinho made an immediate impact on his Villa debut after coming off the bench and scoring in their 2-2 comeback draw against Manchester United last month.
The former Liverpool star was in dazzling form in Villa’s thrilling 3-3 draw with Leeds at Villa Park.
Coutinho opened the scoring for Villa and registered two assists, with Gerrard’s men reduced to 10 men after Ezri Konsa was sent off in the second half.
The Brazil international’s superb performance against Leeds has been highlighted in a compilation, with fans in awe at his “absurdly wonderful performance.”
One fan tweeted: “Happy for Coutinho that he found his balance yet again in football!”
“This is actually an absurdly wonderful performance. World class,” a second wrote.
While a third Twitter user posted: “I can’t believe Xavi didn’t know how to use him. Useless.”
Someone else said: “That 20-minute spell was the best I’ve ever seen an individual play at VP. Deserved 3 points [sic] he and JJ have every right to be f****d off with the rest of them out there.”
And a fifth added: “Every time he got on the ball, I just kept looking at him in disbelief he’s in a Villa shirt, unreal baller.”

A Dan James brace and Diego Llorente equaliser ensured that Marcelo Bielsa’s men secured an important point, with Leeds six points clear of the relegation zone.
Villa will return to action on Sunday when they travel to St James’ Park for their clash with Newcastle, while Leeds will face Everton at Goodison Park on Saturday.
