Coutinho says Liverpool have to maintain the momentum
Philippe Coutinho is predicting a tie to savour when Liverpool take on Beşiktaş in the last-32 of the Europa League this week.
Brendan Rodgers' side are currently on a run of just one defeat in 16 matches since mid-December, and with a top-four berth and the FA Cup also still to play for this campaign. Coutinho told the club's official website: "It's important to maintain the momentum. Everybody defends when we do not have the ball and I think that has been important in helping to allow the team to play well, so we have to continue like this. We know at the beginning of the season it was not like this with our form, but we have to continue as we have been and aspire to achieve good things like trophies. I think the most important thing is the cup - we have to think about the cup. Of course, there are other benefits of winning the title, like the qualification for the Champions League."
