Phil Coutinho goal vs Man Utd:
The Brazilian forward had a struggling time at Barcelona this season. He has been inconsistent and was often dropped to the bench by Ernesto Valverde.
However, he surprisingly started ahead of Ousmane Dembele in the second leg against Manchester United, and impressed the Camp Nou faithful.
He scored the third goal for Barcelona with an excellent shot from outside the box, as De Gea could do little but hopelessly dive to somehow reach the ball.
Here’s the goal and the celebrations
