'Back to his best': Liverpool fans praise Roberto Firmino's Aston Villa display
Liverpool edged out Aston Villa this afternoon as a late goal from Trent-Alexander Arnold ensured the Reds broke their home hoodoo.
Mo Salah had got Liverpool back in the game with a close range header, before Trent struck late to send Jamie Carragher into a frenzy on Sky commentary.
The goals from Liverpool were in response to an earlier Ollie Watkins finish. The England man had slid under Alisson Becker from inside the area, with the Reds stopper once again looking a bit rusty.
A number of Reds players put in excellent displays throughout and while it was Alexander-Arnold who grabbed the headlines at the end, the performance of Roberto Firmino was pleasing for some Liverpool fans.
Twitter was full of comments praising the Brazilian, with many feeling he was back to near his best. Here, then, is a look at how some Liverpool fans reacted to the latest performance of Bobby Firmino today.
I thought Firmino was out standing today

That was a must win for Liverpool and who knows if it will have any impact on the Real game but regardless of Wednesday it keeps Liverpool’s season alive. Firmino has to start ahead of Mane against Real

Firmino was back to his best, very busy and linking the play. Great touches and awesome on the transition. Hopefully Klopp starts him against Real.

I know a lot of people have written Bobby Firmino off but I hope today showed how much he has to offer all over the pitch still.
