Here’s a sample of Liverpool fans praising the intricate goal:

Firmino stepped up to Everton’s Mason Holgate on the edge of the away side’s box, and then laid off a cheeky no-look pass to Wijnaldum who then struck a sweet strike past Jordan Pickford. This move ended with Wijnaldum scoring Liverpool’s fifth goal of the game, ending Everton’s chances of a positive result at Anfield in the Premier League for another year.

Interestingly, this defeat to the Reds ended up being Marco Silva’s last game in charge of Everton before being sacked by the club.

Firmino’s impact off the substitutes’ bench certainly went down well with the Liverpool fans.

What do we think? 

To score such a stunning goal against your city rivals, it’s no wonder so many Liverpool fans have been raving about Firmino’s pass and Wijandlum’s finish.

It’s his ability to build play and create for team-mate’s that really makes him a valuable member in the side.
