Everton forward Richarlison is “happy” to see his Brazil team-mate Philippe Coutinho back in the Premier League.

The South American attackers faced off against each other at Goodison Park at the weekend as Aston Villa travelled to Goodison Park.

Steven Gerrard 's side won the game 1-0 thanks to Emiliano Buendia's goal in first half added time.

The win was Villa's first of the calendar year and it ended a recent winless run which stretched back to the victory over Norwich City at Carrow Road in mid-December.

Coutinho, who joined Villa on loan from Barcelona at the start of the month, made his full debut as he started his first game following his substitute appearance in the 2-2 draw against Manchester United.

He played 74 minutes of the clash against managerless Everton on Saturday afternoon and is now building up his fitness.

After the game against the Toffees, Richarlison sent a message to Coutinho on social media.

He said on Instagram: “Happy for you brother. God bless you always!”

In the comments section of his message, Coutinho responded by posting: 'Thanks. Good to see you brother. God bless'.

Coutinho will now jet off on international duty as Brazil face back-to-back World Cup qualifiers against Ecuador (Jan 27) and Paraguay (Feb 2). Richarlison wasn't selected for this round of internationals.
