Milner and Coutinho were joined by Divock Origi at Melwood, as they looked to emulate two of the greatest goals in England in the past 15 years.
Though Origi’s first ball was miss-hit, Milner finished his first effort with aplomb, tucking home at the near post.
Receiving a threaded pass from Robert Pires, Bergkamp turned Nikos Dabizas with exquisite skill and sidefooted past Shay Given on the way to a 2-0 victory at St. James’ Park.
It took Coutinho four attempts, but the Brazilian finally managed to produce a similar effort.
Bergkamp scored 102 goals and laid on 34 assists in 385 games during his time with Arsenal, and with Coutinho wearing the same shirt for Liverpool, the hope will be that he goes on to produce similar for the Reds.
