We needed a performance like this from Roberto Firmino tonight…
Fans have been disappointed with our transfer dealings over the past week and needed a good show against Huddersfield, especially considering we’ve lost our past two matches.
Bobby dazzled, and scored a superb goal just before the stroke of half-time.
Our no.9 dribbled the ball down the left following a lovely flick from Sadio Mane, reached the byline, and gave the keeper the eyes before slotting in at the near post.
Can we please start appreciating Roberto Firmino more? Man is fire

Firmino’s goal stemmed from really positive goalkeeping from Karius about 30 seconds earlier.

Firmino never fails to amaze me. Such an intelligent player. Said this many times before, but genuinely think that he is the most underrated player in the Premier League. The rumoured lifetime contract is deserved. He is not just a part of this system – he is the system.

Fair play to Man Utd for appreciating Roberto Firmino. pic.twitter.com/RWLLlsbMVj

10 – Roberto Firmino has been directly involved in 10 goals in his last 12 Premier League appearances against newly promoted teams (eight goals, two assists). Punished.

This might sound weird, but although Coutinho is undeniably the better footballer, Firmino would have been a bigger loss to our team. He genuinely dictates the way we attack. Surely one of the most intelligent footballers in the world…. pic.twitter.com/Vte8O1ASqY

Firmino goal is world class, not many players would aim at the near post from there, it was like Coutinho's against Man United
