Roberto Firmino was going through a sticky patch in fairness, until Thursday night – when he put in a jaw-dropping performance against Villarreal – helping us win 3-1 on aggregate and progress to the Europa League Final.
Against the Spaniards, Firmino broke the internet with his trick to fool Roberto Soldado, and was in similarly confident mood today.
Jurgen Klopp only gave him 30 minutes against Watford, but it was long enough for the Brazilian to score a goal and show more than a few moments of his sheer, unadulterated class.
This spin followed by first time pass to Christian Benteke, which would have been the assist of the season if the Belgian had been quicker on his toes, was our favourite!
What a player we have on our hands…
