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.
Camarasa thought that he had the situation under control. It turns out he didn’t.
Add no-look nutmegs to the list! 😎😱
Outrageous skill from Firmino 🤙 pic.twitter.com/Q0xCunxIxW

Soldado must really hate playing in England.

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.

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.
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.
