In hitting his 29th top-flight goal against Bournemouth the Reds star has moved level with a Middlesbrough idol

Liverpool star Philippe Coutinho has drawn level with Juninho as the highest-scoring Brazilian in Premier League history following his goal against Bournemouth. 

The former Inter man has become a key member of the Reds first team since joining from Serie A in 2012.

And in hitting the net at Stamford Bridge, he marked a new milestone. 

Coutinho has now scored 29 Premier League goals, equalling the record for Brazil in England's top-flight. 

Only Juninho, who starred for Middlesbrough, has scored as many as the current Selecao international, who equalled his Premier League season best with his eighth of the current campaign.

The former Atletico Madrid and Celtic man, now retired, scored his goals in three separate spells for the Teesiders. 

But if Coutinho continues his current form he should set a daunting new benchmark for his compatriots in the future.
