Liverpool fans call Roberto Firmino best striker in the Premier League after winning goal heroics vs Paris Saint-Germain

wow!

The Brazil forward netted a superb injury-time strike to down PSG on the opening matchday of the 2018/19 Champions League

Liverpool fans believe Roberto Firmino is the best player in the Premier League.

Firmino, the Brazil forward, netted an injury-time winner in Liverpool’s defeat of Paris Saint-Germain which got the Reds’ Champions League campaign off to a perfect start.

Picking up the ball on the right side of the area, Firmino turned onto his left foot before cutting back onto his strong right to make space for himself. He then fired a low strike that arrowed into the far corner of Alphonse Areola’s goal, earning the Merseyside club three points after they let a two-goal lead slip to their French opponents.

Firmino managed to do all of that despite entering the game with less than 20 minutes remaining, having been left on the bench due to the eye injury he suffered at the weekend.

The 26-year-old was a doubt for Tuesday’s game following his clash with Jan Vertonghen, the Tottenham defender, but he came up trumps once again to show just how important he is to Liverpool.

Despite scoring 27 goals last season, Firmino often gets overlooked with Sadio Mane and Mohamed Salah the common targets for praise, but Liverpool fans took to social media to rave about their player – with some even calling him the best striker in the Premier League.
