Roberto Firmino’s striking piece of skill leaves Dani Ceballos dazzled during Liverpool’s 3-1 drubbing of Arsenal at the Anfield in the Premier League.
Liverpool are enjoying an amazing start to their Premier League campaign so far. They are the only team in the English top-flight to have remained unbeaten so far. Much ado was made about Liverpool’s transfer activity, or the lack of it. However, they have so far dispatched every team put in front of them with little to no difficulty.
The heroes so far have been the same men who led the charge last season. The Reds have functioned like a well-oiled machine and it will take something special to upstage them. They started the season with the 4-1 demolition of newly promoted Norwich City. They then beat Southampton away 2-1 before sweeping Arsenal under the rug with 3-1.
Joel Matip opened the scoring before Mohammed Salah doubled the lead by scoring from a penalty. Salah then added one more to their score through a phenomenal solo goal. Arsenal pulled one back late in the game but it was nothing more than a consolation prize.
During all of this, Roberto Firmino. An integral component of Jurgen Klopp’s side produced a mental effort that left many asking ‘What just happened!’

If the ball had found its way behind the nets then this would have surely been a very early goal of the season contender. Just watching him leave everyone flummoxed is so satisfying.
Liverpool will now face Burnley away before the International break. The Reds will hope to grace the break with a clean sweep of 4 victories in 4 matches.
