On Saturday, Liverpool made easy work of Cardiff, overcoming the Bluebirds 4-1 at Anfield. However, one moment that the fans may have missed was Roberto Firmino’s no-look backheel nutmeg, a moment which has got them all off their seats and applauding now they’ve seen the video.
Add no-look nutmegs to the list!

Bobby Firmino is a superbly talented player. He has grown into his role at Anfield as the club’s number nine and if he keeps going the way he is then it won’t be long until he helps his side towards some sort of silverware. Jurgen Klopp obviously rates him very highly and he provides a much different option up front to your more conventional strikers like Daniel Sturridge and Dominic Solanke at the club.
The next step for Firmino will probably have to be adding more goals. Whilst that sounds strange considering he plays as a lone striker for the Reds, the way he plays is very selfless in that he drops deep and pulls wide to create space in the middle for Mo Salah and Sadio Mane to cut in and find. If he can carry on in doing his role and helping to create chances and score more goals, considering he only bagged 15 goals in the Premier League last season, then he’ll be a complete Liverpool forward.
