Roberto Firmino was in no mood to let Mohamed Salah steal the spotlight on Saturday as he chipped in with a goal of his own against Watford.
The Brazilian did, however, have his strike partner to thank for his sublime assist after once again making a mockery of Miguel Britos on the right-hand side.
Firmino rounded off his near-post run to meet Salah’s cross with a cleverly-excuted flick beyond the grasp of goalkeeper Orestis Karnezis.
It was the no.9’s 23rd goal across all competitions in what has comfortably been his most productive season since signing for Liverpool.
The Reds flaunted a 2-0 lead heading into the interval thanks to a brace from Salah, which took him to 34 goals across all competitions and propelled him above Harry Kane and back to the Premier League’s list of top scorers.
Jurgen Klopp’s men have displayed no signs of loosening their superior grip on the tempo of the game, with Salah, Firmino and Sadio Mane persisting to taunt Watford’s dogged defence.
For once, there was no extravagant celebration from Firmino but instead sheer appreciation for Salah’s role.
Here’s a look at the goal…
Pure filth by Firmino!
