Garth Crooks sensibly selected Virgil van Dijk and Mo Salah in his Team of the Week last night, but somehow missed Roberto Firmino!
The Brazilian put in a jaw-dropping performance against Southampton in Liverpool’s 2-0 win, scoring a goal and registering the ‘assist of the season’ with an outrageous back-heel.
He also made six tackles, which for a forward, is crazy!
We’re not sure Crooks paid enough attention, as Firmino undoubtedly had a better game than Harry Kane did for Spurs.
We’d have also suggested Loris Karius had a shout for selection…
The German made a key save when we were 1-0 up, and then tipped a header over the bar as well, while starting counter-attacks smartly.
If he maintains that form, we might not need an expensive goalkeeper in the summer at all!
No Firmino, Garth? Outrageous! pic.twitter.com/biVZ74vJNA
