Philippe Countinho: 'It's an honour to be Luis Suarez's teammate'

Philippe Coutinho claims it is his "honour" to be Luis Suarez's Liverpool teammate this season.

Liverpool playmaker Philippe Coutinho has revealed that it is an "honour" for him to be in the same team as Luis Suarez.

The Uruguay international striker has helped propel the Reds into contention for the Premier League title this season with his 15-goal haul.

Victory over Tottenham Hotspur at White Hart Lane this afternoon will see Brendan Rodgers's men move to within two points of leaders Arsenal at the summit, and Coutinho is enthused about ending the club's 23-year wait for a league title with a player of Suarez's calibre.

Speaking to The Guardian, the Brazilian said: "Playing alongside Luis is an honour because he is such a fantastic player. He makes life for someone in my position easier because of how good he is.

"It is our dream to win the title. That is what we are working towards but the competition is still at an early stage. There are a few more games to play before we can make such a statement."

This afternoon's clash in North London kicks off at 4pm.
