One of our favourite moments from Saturday’s victory over Cardiff was the ridiculous piece of skill Roberto Firmino showed on his own touchline.
The Brazilian, while on the floor, managed a no-look, back-heel nutmeg that set Liverpool on a counter-attack!
LFCTV have released another video angle, which shows just how impressive the trick actually was.

Add no-look nutmegs to the list! 😎😱

We’d suggest that Firmino has actually not reached his best level yet this season.
To think, in 2017/18 he bagged 27 goals in all competitions, but is so far on four and only one in his last eight.
Jurgen Klopp has been using him in a more withdrawn role recently, which maximises his defensive output and creativity.
So long as Sadio Mane and Mo Salah are finding the back of the net, this isn’t a problem.
We expect him to have a very big game against Arsenal at the weekend.
