The internet has flooded itself with reports Roberto Firmino celebrated Adam Lallana’s missed sitter too early against Manchester City yesterday, but was that actually the case?
On this angle, you can clearly see that our Brazilian no.11 sees Lallana fluff his lines. He can see that his team-mate has missed the ball and appears to drop to the ground in disbelief, rather than celebration.
He’s smiling, but it’s an ironic one, rather than celebratory, no?
I can definitely see why people think it’s an early celebration, but why would he celebrate when he’s literally watched Lallana miss the chance!
That doesn’t make sense…
