Despite his consistent brilliance for Barcelona, the argument that Lionel Messi would struggle in the Premier League due to the physicality and intensity of the competition is often repeated.

It listed the top scorers against the Premier League’s top six clubs.

But it is absolute nonsense and the Argentine proved that once again on Tuesday night.

Of the Premier League’s top-six sides, he has scored against all of them apart from one: Liverpool.

On the sidelines, Ousmane Dembele had been warming up and eventually replaced him, but there was an ovation for Coutinho tonight and he earned it as the Frenchman was not needed to win this match in the closing stages.

He also has the right attitude and at just €30 million from Gremio, he now seems like an absolute bargain.

Philippe Coutinho has had a difficult season at Barcelona, having impressed on arrival last term, but the Brazilian hit a wonder goal tonight to put this tie to bed and set up a probable return to his former club Liverpool in the semi-finals (providing the Reds make it past Porto tomorrow).
