Opta stats from Liverpool's 2-0 win over Hull City on New Year's Day show how Philippe Coutinho was at his diligent best as he led the Reds' forward forays against the Tigers at Anfield.

The Brazilian provided a crucial assist, which helped Daniel Agger break the deadlock in the tie - and could have had a goal of his own after a masterful, slaloming run in the 91st minute.

The shot at the end of that 55-yard surge, which Allan McGregor palmed clear to the Kop's despair, was one of seven he fired at goal during the match.

Coutinho looped in two successful crosses - Agger nodding one of them home - and the 21-year-old created two shot assists in the game.

He took 73 touches of the ball and played 50 passes, a mere four of which were hit long to a teammate.
