Philippe Coutinho, Roberto Firmino and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain recently provided a special Christmas surprise for local schoolchildren - watch the kids' priceless reactions now.

The Liverpool trio headed to St Paul's Catholic Junior School, based in the shadow of the club's Melwood training base in West Derby, to interrupt unsuspecting pupils as they spoke to LFCTV.

The 20 lucky children aged 7-11 thought they were simply being filmed picking out their favourite LFC players, but were soon joined by our festively-dressed Reds stars.

The day was extra special for young Natalia, who moved to Liverpool from Sao Paulo just six months ago and got to meet two of the Brazil national team's main men before conversing with them in their native Portuguese.

Check out our must-watch YouTube clip of the delighted kids below.
