Roberto Firmino bagged his tenth Premier League goal of the season this afternoon with a run from near the halfway line and right-foot finish versus Watford, sealing a 2-0 home win.
His Brazilian compatriot Huerelho Gomes should’ve done better, but it’s another testament of our summer signing’s outrageous ability nonetheless.
The chance was possible thanks to excellent pressing from Sheyi Ojo, whose closing down earned Firmino possession. Naturally, the Brazilian, who came on as a substitute for Coutinho after the hour mark, used it.
There’s a fair argument to suggest Firmino has been our Player of the Season, an enormous compliment considering his slow start to life in England.
