Firmino is one of the best tool at Anfield and despite being unfit after catching a scratch to his eyes, the Brazilian threatened with fury when he came off the bench after the hour mark in their Champions League clash against Paris Saint-Germain on Tuesday.
Reds boss Jurgen Klopp remarked that he was wowed by his showboating yesterday, despite having negated playing him on the night.
Daniel Sturridge resurrected in the clash, opening the scoring. Despite the mat of uncertainty surrounding his fitness and future at the club, Sturridge defied all odds to strike early in the game against Paris Saint-Germain.
After the Reds 3-2 win over the. Ligue One giants, Klopp commended the two strikers.
He said: “Great performance. Great performance of Daniel.
“The three in midfield did an outstanding job, but they only can do it when the two wingers in how we play and the No.9 are helping in all these situations to keep the formation compact.
“It was fantastic. I said to Daniel before the game he is the best shape since I’ve known him, physically, and now he had to use it – and that’s what he did.
“A super game, a super goal. And we then had the opportunity to bring on Bobby Firmino.”
Liverpool return to Premier League action on Saturday, taking on Southampton.
