Roberto Firmino struck a stoppage-time victor as Liverpool beat Paris St Germain 3-2 at Anfield on Tuesday after Kylian Mbappe looked to have secured a point for the French side in a compelling Champions League Group C clash. "To come off the bench after his injury at the weekend is incredible really".
It is not to say Milner is flawless in every facet of the game, but having only missed only 23 minutes of action to date he has shown to Klopp, the Liverpool faithful and the rest of the league that his career is not winding down, it is only getting better.
On a night of pulsating action there was to be one last twist in the tale, as Firmino left it until the 91st-minute to pull a victor out of the back, wriggling into a shooting position inside a crowded PSG area before rattling a low shot across Areola and inside the far post.
"That's so cool for him, for us, such a big, important sign. And that's what we've done by beating both of them [Spurs and PSG]".
"As we all know, Neymar's not a defensive player".
The forward has scored his 12 goals in 16 matches and at his current strike rate of 0.75 per game, Firmino would require another 24 Champions League outings to catch Kop icon Gerrard. "That is good that it is not like that now and that is because of previous year".
But he has returned fitter than ever this season and already has two goals to his credit. "Can see him playing a 100 games for England....in midfield". But Firmino didn't have any issues with his vision when he steered a superb finish past PSG goalkeeper Alphonse Areola to send Anfield in ecstasy. "You can bring Bobby Firmino on and that helps a lot". The Kop celebrated wildly; Jurgen Klopp joining in with his trademark fist pump, while Salah, infuriated for reasons known best to him, flung a bottle right down at his feet.
