Philippe Coutinho already has participated in three parties with the FC Barcelona. The Brazilian midfield player has been used in several positions by Ernesto Valverde, from the right extreme, to the left extreme, of mediapunta or even of interior. The 'Txingurri' wants to take advantage of his polivalencia to take out party of his qualities.

However, Philippe Coutinho showed that where feels really comfortable is in the left band. When it played in the right did not have so much exit for desbordar or to filter passes complicated to the interior of the area, something that yes saw him when it changed of flank. In spite of that it have played several times in the right with Brazil, in the left feels much more comfortable.

In said position could him see much looser and finer, so much in the dribbling as to the hour to look for diagonals. A much more similar role to the that developed in the Liverpool. It is necessary to say that, played in the side that played, also tended to centre his position to participate more in the game.

Why the turn of Dembélé is key for Coutinho?

It is here where goes in the name of Ousmane Dembélé, a man that plays more usually in the right band when being ambidiestro but tend to drive the balloon with the left-handed. When Ernesto Valverde recover him, Philippe Coutinho will have the opportunity, very probably, to play by the left flank of permanent form.

From here it is him much simpler throw diagonal and tend to come to the centre of the attack, where his capacity of association can turn him into a lethal weapon beside Leo Messi or Luis Suárez. Play in the left band is a release for the ex of the Liverpool and showed it in the final stretch of the last party, when it attained to connect more with the Argentinian and the Uruguayan.
