Philippe Coutinho believes that his Liverpool teammates are "from another world" after being blown away by the performances of captain Steven Gerrard and star striker Luis Suarez.

The Brazilian has quickly adapted to life in England and has played a major role in helping the club win their last three Premier League games. He scored on his first start against Swansea and provided two assists in the 4-0 win over Wigan.

He was once again effective in the first half against Tottenham and has seemingly quickly developed an understanding with Suarez, a player he believes is simply out of this world.

"Suarez is phenomenal - he is otherworldly," Coutinho told "The goals he scores, the way he gives himself to the team... It is very important and I am very happy to be able to play next to him.

"I think it's the way he gives himself to the team - he fights all the time and chases all the time. He doesn't let one ball go - even if it's the hardest one. He fights all the time to win and I admire that in a player. I think it is one of his strong points.

However, it is not just Suarez who has impressed Coutinho since he made the move from Inter Milan for £8.5million back in January.

"I'm not only happy to play next to him, but also other players like Steven [Gerrard], who is phenomenal, too. These are guys from another world!"

Despite an impressive start to his Liverpool career, Coutinho is yet to play more than 70 minutes and has admitted that he is working hard in the gym to be able to cope with the physical demands of playing in the Premier League.

"It is very different here. In Brazil the game is very open, the defenders are not as tight with the attacker. I think this is the hardest thing here," added the Brazil international.

"Also, the game is very quick - but I feel I can improve these things during training and improve my intensity. I have been doing some body building, too, so I can get more used to the physicality."

The 20-year-old has already played in Brazil, Italy and Spain, but admits that the Premier League is one of the toughest because of the intensity of the games.

"English football is very quick, it has great intensity, and I think this is the big difference [to other leagues]," explained Coutinho.

"In Brazil, football is slower, the tactics are a bit more open and the pitch even seems to be bigger - even though it is obviously the same size - due to the game being so open.

"In Italy, it is a little bit different than it is in Brazil, but here in England it is very quick. I played in Italy and in Spain but the intensity of the game here is very strong. I just have to improve to be able to play at the highest level here.

"I will always give my best and then try to score and create good moves to help the team win."
