Roberto Firmino celebrates scoring for Liverpool in their Premier League match against Brighton & Hove Albion at Anfield, Liverpool, October 2022.

15 times Liverpool’s Roberto Firmino utterly humiliated the opposition

Roberto Firmino has played a huge role in Liverpool’s glorious era under Jurgen Klopp – and he’s had plenty of fun along the way.

Firmino has scored 103 goals in 336 appearances for the Reds since signing for the club in 2015, winning the Premier League, Champions League, Super Cup and Club World Cup in that time.

But, more importantly, he has made a habit out of humiliating opposition players. Here are 15 memorable examples of his showboating.

Víctor Camarasa

Camarasa thought that he had the situation under control. It turns out he didn’t.

Roberto Soldado

Soldado must really hate playing in England.

Mason Holgate

Skipping past a defender and then setting up a goal in a 5-2 win over your local rivals. It doesn’t get much better than that.

Ignazio Abate

Even in a pre-season friendly, Firmino doesn’t take it easy on opposing defenders.

Aleksandar Rajcevic

Lesson number one: Never try and get tight to Roberto Firmino.


You’ve got the goal, Bobby, do you really need to take the piss with a no-look finish? Answer: Absolutely.

The Newcastle defence

They’re still wondering where the ball went.

Troy Deeney

This is exactly why strikers should never defend. It’ll never end well.

David Luiz 

Close those legs, David.

Dani Ceballos

Now that’s just disrespectful.

Gareth McAuley

Sometimes giving away a free-kick is the only way to stop Firmino.

Shkodran Mustafi, Sokratis and Lucas Torreira

Why humiliate one player when you can humiliate three and score a goal all in one move.

Carlos Cuesta

Firmino has to think of new innovative ways to humiliate defenders so why not use a rabona to set up on of your team-mates.

Alexsandar Kolarov

Kolarov thinks he’s stopped the Brazilian in his tracks, but he has another trick up his sleeve.
