Best Liverpool Twitter reaction on ‘genius’ Firmino, following Brazilian’s beautiful brace

Posted by

Our rapidly improving Brazilian hero Roberto Firmino was arguably the best player on the park in our 3-3 draw with Arsenal at Anfield on Wednesday night.

The 24-year-old scored our first two goals – with the first coming after Petr Cech could only parry Emre Can’s drive into his path and the second being a beautiful 25-yard effort that was curled into the top corner. It was a moment of sheer individual genius.

It’s really nice to see Firmino finally hitting his stride. We knew he had bags of talent from his time in the Bundesliga, but he looked short of form and confidence at the start of the season.

Since Klopp arrived he’s being given a chance to prove himself and has repaid that faith by scoring three goals and turning in a series of strong performances in a position that he’s not fully accustomed to.

Needless to say, Reds fans on  Twitter were fawning over his performance tonight. Here’s the best of their reaction:
