(Video) This brilliant Roberto Firmino header means Brazilian is officially Liverpool’s most deady player

Posted by

Roberto Firmino pulled Liverpool out of the s*** on Saturday afternoon.

The Brazilian scored a 54th-minute equaliser for the Reds, before winning the penalty kick which James Milner chipped home to seal a 2-1 win at Swansea City.

Despite being best-known for his tricky feet, Firmino’s leveller came courtesy of a precise header.

And that header was the 13th Premier League goal scored by Firmino since his arrival in England at the start of last season.

Football stat boffins Opta announced shortly after Firmino’s header hit the net that the 24-year-old had now been involved in more goals than any of his teammates during the time he has been at the club.

Firmino has now scored 13 league goals and provided a further seven assists.

Those stats are even more impressive when you consider Firmino does not officially get an assist for winning Milner’s penalty.

He’s on fire!
