Latest Liverpool news: Firmino turns on the style with a fantastic flick against Ceballos
Roberto Firmino has a great record against Arsenal and had scored in almost every game he played against the Gunners.
The Brazilian scored a hat-trick in the previous clash at Anfield but was unable to get past Bernd Leno last night. Mohamed Salah scored a brace in the second half, with Joel Matip opening the scoring in the first half.
Lucas Torreira got a consolation goal for the Gunners late in the game, but the points were never in doubt.
Liverpool fans go crazy after Firmino’s flick
Firmino is known to pull off some outrageous moves on the pitch and is popular for his ‘no-look’ goals and celebrations.
The forward did something spectacular in the first half as Dani Ceballos tried to close him down.

Firmino flicked the ball up in one move and took a shot at goal, but couldn’t score. However, Ceballos didn’t know where the ball ended up and that got the Anfield crowd going.
The Brazilian looks close to being at his best at the moment, and even if he isn’t scoring, the 27-year-old create chances for his teammates.
Many Liverpool stars were pleased with Bobby’s overall performance, but the flick was the one highlight that some fans raved about.
