Roberto Firmino Ends Arsenal Defenders' Careers Before Scoring Unreal Solo Goal

His first goal was a tap-in but Roberto Firmino scored a stunning solo goal to put Liverpool 2-1 up against Arsenal.

The league leaders went behind in the 11th minute after Ainsley Maitland-Niles popped up at the back post but then Firmino struck twice in quick succession to turn the game on its head and put the Reds in front.

But while his first had an element of good fortune about it, his second was pure spice.

After Sadio Mane dispossessed Lucas Torreira in the middle of the park, Firmino picked up the ball and promptly danced through the Gunners backline before slamming home past Bernd Leno.

It was poor defending from Arsenal, but also the sauciest of solo goals from the Liverpool No.9. So many ankles broken.

The former Hoffenheim man evidently enjoys playing against Arsenal as this glorious goal was his seventh in the Premier League against the North London club – with only Robbie Fowler managing more strikes against them.

Fans couldn’t help but be in awe of what Firmino produced:

After getting themselves ahead, Liverpool then added two more in the first half when Mane and Salah got in on the act.
