Impressive by anyone's standards.

Liverpool fans rejoiced this week as Brazilian star Phillipe Coutinho put pen to paper in a deal which will keep him at the club until 2020.

Rodgers is looking to keep several players at the club long term and the 22 year old is top of the list, and with stats like the one tweeted above last night, is it any wonder the board have offered him improved terms on his deal? According to data from WhoScored.com, the player has created more clear cut chances than anyone else in the league since his move to Liverpool from Internazionale in 2013. That's pretty impressive by anyone's standards.

The Liverpool boss thinks Coutinho is potentially world class, and with Gerrard on his way at the end of the season it's a sensible move to bolster the midfield, with a number of transfer targets lined up for the summer also.

Liverpool fans, have a watch of his highlights reel below and let us know whether you think he has the potential to become one of the greats.
