Roberto Firmino's Never-Before-Seen Touch Is Blowing People's Minds
Roberto Firmino pulled off an insane 'heel touch' during Liverpool's victory over Sheffield United.
Firmino's touch blew people's minds as Liverpool beat Sheffield United 2-0 to restore their 13-point lead at the top of the Premier League table.
Mohamed Salah and Sadio Mane scored either side of the break, but it was their teammate's moment which got fans talking online.
The Brazilian forward received the ball from Mane on the edge of the box and killed the ball instantly with a ridiculous touch with his heel before finding Trent Alexander-Arnold in a sublime sequence.
Naturally, Firmino's exquisite touch sent social media into overdrive.
"Did Firmino just do what I think he did? Yes he did. Nice," Gary Lineker wrote on Twitter.
