Luis Suarez welcomes Philippe Coutinho to Barcelona on Twitter

10 Enero 2018

Barcelona boss Ernesto Valverde has hinted there are still things to work on following his side's clinical 3-0 win over Levante at the Camp Nou on Sunday afternoon.

The Catalans are still unbeaten in La Liga this season and have Philippe Coutinho to come in, with the Brazilian expected to be officially unveiled as a Barcelona player on Monday following the announcement of his 160 million-euro ($192 million) move from Liverpool.

"Levante had not lost away since September".

However, had it not been for the alertness of goalkeeper Marc-André ter Stegen during the early moments of the second period, Barca could well have surrendered their comfortable advantage.

Coutinho's new house is reported to be in the Bellemar district of Castelldefels, an exclusive neighbourhood just along the coast from the city of Barcelona and the very same enclave in which Lionel Messi resides.

It is mentioned that Klopp is looking for a striker like Suarez and the German coach believes that the center forward would fit well in his system at Anfield.

The Argentine playmaker was, as usual, at the centre of all of Barcelona's positive play - before and after he had broken the deadlock with an impressive effort on 12 minutes which flew in off the post. "We were very good in the first half, but the rhythm was not the same in the second half", said Valverde.

Suarez, who has found his groove after a tiresome start to season, shot the ball high into the net in the 38th minute off a cross from Sergi Roberto to score his fifth goal in four games. Four touches, one sensational goal. The defender, though, was able to continue following treatment.

But it was Paulinho who wrapped up the scoring in the third minute of stoppage time, Coutinho's compatriot tapping in from six yards after Suarez dummied a cross from Messi, who beat three defenders in typically stunning fashion before delivering a superb low cross.
