Just when you think it couldn't get any worse for Philippe Coutinho at Wembley Stadium during the Capital One Cup defeat against Manchester City on Sunday, it did.

First he missed a penalty during the shoot-out, and then after collecting his unwanted losers' medal, the Brazilian took an almighty tumble to the floor, which did not go unoticed in front of the baying Wembley crowd.

Coutinho had equalised for Liverpool in the match, but soon his afternoon became a nightmare.

Sergio Aguero had put City ahead, before Coutinho's equaliser brought the game to extra-time and then penalties after the contest ended 1-1.

Losing manager Jurgen Klopp said after the game: "We are disappointed but I'm pleased with a lot things I saw in the game. It was even in the first half with moments on our side and moments on their side.

"In the second half we conceded the goal, but then we tried everything and scored the equaliser. They had a few counter-attacks and we were too open in one or two situations, but we were back in the game.

"We had a big chance with Divock and a couple of other situations too. It's unlucky, but it's one way to lose in a cup final. It doesn't matter how, so we are disappointed."
