Roberto Firmino Flicks Ball Over Dani Ceballos To Set Himself Up

Roberto Firmino Flicks Ball Over Dani Ceballos To Set Himself Up

Roberto Firmino produced one of the most ridiculous pieces of skill you will see all season in Liverpool's 3-1 victory over Arsenal.

The Brazilian forward cheekily flicked the ball over the on-rushing Dani Ceballos to set himself up in an outrageous moment.

He managed to get his shot off, but, unfortunately, he couldn't complete the sublime move with a goal though he did earn his team a corner.

As expected, Liverpool fans loved it.

Despite securing three points, Jurgen Klopp believes his side can still do better in controlling matches.

"If we could have controlled the game better, that remains our real challenge," he said following his side's victory at Anfield.

"It doesn't happen often but if it happens when you are 3-0 up or 4-0 against Norwich... Arsenal didn't really press any more. They were deep and together, and we kept passing the ball to their legs. It made no sense.

"The last 10 minutes I saw the possession - 53 to 47 or something like that - but over 80 minutes it must have been completely different. For 80 minutes we were completely in charge of the game. We are not Disneyland, we do not need to excite everyone in every second.

"We were still in attacking mood (towards the end), so we have to prepare these moments better. We have a lot to improve, but it was a big step tonight as well."

Liverpool resume their Premier League campaign against Burnley next weekend.
