Jan Vertonghen’s stray hand caught the Brazilian in the eye in the second-half of the game
Liverpool forward Roberto Firmino was discharged from a London hospital after receiving good news on the eye injury he sustained during the Reds’ 2-1 win at Tottenham.
He was sent for assessment after being forced off the field in the second-half of Liverpool’s victory at Wembley.
And it was good news for the Brazilian as a hospital examination confirmed an abrasion of the eye but there will be no lasting damage.
It is not known whether Firmino will be available for Liverpool’s Champions League match at home to Paris Saint-Germain on Tuesday night, however.
Before sustaining the injury, Firmino scored what prove to be the decisive goal of the game as he tapped home a loose ball virtually on the goalline to put Liverpool 2-0 up.
His display earned a great deal of praise from these Reds fans on Twitter as Jurgen Klopp’s men continued their perfect start to the 2018/19 season.
