Liverpool midfielder Philippe Coutinho is eyeing “more goals” this season after his brace in their opening match of the season.

Coutinho scored a sumptuous free-kick and a perfectly-timed volley off his shin as the Reds came from a goal down to win 4-3 in a seven-goal thriller at the Emirates Stadium.

The Brazilian scored eight Premier League goals last campaign and wants to improve on that total this time around.

“Yes, I think I can score more this season,” Coutinho told the Liverpool Echo. “I always said that the one thing I really needed to improve was to score more goals.

“I did that last season and now I want to keep on improving. The most important thing is the group. But the more goals I score, the more I can help the team.

“I am happy not only because I scored two goals but because the team played well and we got the three points we wanted.

“We feel good. It was a tough game but we played really well in the second half. It’s the first step for us. To win away at one of our rivals will be good for our confidence.”
