Firmino Ends Arsenal Defenders' Careers Before Scoring Unreal Goal

ON TARGET Fabinho celebrates his goal in yesterday’s Premier League win over Newcastle at Anfield

The point is, Liverpool is in a position it really never finds itself in, and the fans are starting to truly believe this could be the year the team wins the league.

Sadio Mane and Mohamed Salah doubled the advantage before the break and Firmino completed the rout with a second half penalty.

Klopp was already thinking about their next Premier League game against Manchester City next, as he took out Andrew Roberton, who was in danger of getting his second yellow card seven minutes before time and brought in Nathaniel Clyne.

It would be recalled that a 1-1 draw was played in the first leg and that was the last time the Merseyside club were denied full three points and also one of the three draws Liverpool have recorded in 19 games. The Reds top the standings halfway through the season, and a win over Arsenal would maintain their six-point lead over the nearest rivals, if not extend it further.

Mane forced Lucas Torreira into losing possession and when Firmino picked up the ball 40 yards out Arsenal's centre-backs parted and dropped off, giving Firmino every invitation to drive forward and skip past Mustafi and then Sokratis Papastathopoulos before sending Bernd Leno the wrong way.

Absolutely brilliant, and boy is that a welcome sight for the Reds.

"We will have his (Fernandinho's) qualities again and he is an incredible player", said Guardiola.

"It's a supporters and journalists game, but we can not be a part of it".

Unai Emery insisted there was one positive to take from Arsenal's embarrassing 5-1 defeat against Liverpool on Saturday.

"We spoke in the dressing room, it is another experience for us, but from bad experiences you learn". The Egyptian worldwide blasted home the resulting spot kick for 4-1 at the break.

Salah gave up the chance to move clear in the race for the golden boot when Sead Kolasinac pushed Dejan Lovren 25 minutes from time and Firmino gratefully fired home the penalty much to his manager's delight. "They are absolute heroes for me".

"Moving back to Spain is something I have thought about, I am exhausted of the cold here but I do not know about interests from other clubs".
