Firmino punishes Holgate two years later for pushing him into boardings with most savage skill of the season

Posted by

Remember in January 2018 when Mason Holgate tried to put Roberto Firmino into the advertising hoardings in our FA Cup victory at Anfield?

The Everton defender somehow didn’t get sent off for it – but it seems Bobby never forgot!

Tonight, when he came on, the game was already won at 4-2, but Firmino put the polish on it by destroying the defender with a sublime piece of skill – before providing Gini Wijnaldum the assist to make it 5-2.

Sometimes, revenge is best served cold!

You can watch the skill and goal, here, via RMC – and the incident from two years ago in the YouTube video embedded below.

Liverpool are now 29 points ahead of Everton after 14 games played.

We’d be surprised if Marco Silva stayed in a job, but Jurgen Klopp has his eyes firmly set on the Premier League title.

We’re eight points clear of Leicester and 11 in front of Manchester City.
