15 times Liverpool’s Roberto Firmino utterly humiliated opposition players

Quick Reads

Roberto Firmino has been at the centre of Liverpool’s resurgence over the last few years, and he’s at his best when he’s having fun. 

Firmino has scored 77 goals in 235 appearances for the Reds since signing for the club in 2015, picking up a Champions League winners medal last season.

But more importantly he has made a habit out of humiliating opposition players and we’ve looked at 15 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.

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

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.
