Roberto Firmino hadn’t scored in his first three matches, with many fans declaring the Brazilian not match-fit following his World Cup exploits.

But today, he registered his first goal of the campaign against Leicester.

James Milner swung in a lovely corner and our no.9 headed in clinically beyond Kasper Schmeichel.

Firmino made sure to head low and the flailing Dane couldn’t keep it out.

It was an especially crucial goal as the hosts had been on top from about the 20th minute, but to go in at the break 2-0, against the run of play, is what top teams do.
