15 times Liverpool’s Roberto Firmino utterly humiliated opposition players
Roberto Firmino has played a huge role in Liverpool’s ascent to Premier League champions – and he’s had plenty of fun along the way.
Firmino has scored 78 goals in 248 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.
Camarasa thought that he had the situation under control. It turns out he didn’t.
Add no-look nutmegs to the list! 😎😱

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.

Even in a pre-season friendly, Firmino doesn’t take it easy on opposing defenders.
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.
On this day in 2018, Liverpool beat West Ham 4-1 at Anfield thanks to goals from Can, Salah, Mane and a vintage no-look goal from Firmino.

The Newcastle defence
They’re still wondering where the ball went.
This is exactly why strikers should never defend. It’ll never end well.
Close those legs, David.
💯│ Fabinho, Virgil, Naby, Matip, Salah, Firmino, Henderson…pretty much everyone is involved in this one!
All to put it on a silver platter for the Main Man(é) 🇸🇳pic.twitter.com/Sahx886kMG

Now that’s just disrespectful.

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.
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.
That Roberto Firmino flick 🔥

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