However, just four minutes into the second period Firmino pounced to find an equaliser, as seen in the video below.

The Liverpool forward was alert and showed great pace to get to the ball first before keeping his composure to slot the ball past the goalkeeper and into the back of the net.

Albeit not the flashiest of goals that he’ll ever score, Firmino will undoubtedly be delighted with it nonetheless, as it showed all his strengths.

From closing the defender down to being switched on to anticipate the stray pass and produce the end product, it was an important goal for his side as they searched for a way back into the encounter.
