Roberto Firmino hailed Liverpool’s 2-1 win at Swansea on Saturday afternoon, as the “perfect weekend”.
Forward Firmino scored a headed goal and then won a penalty in the second-half, as the Reds came from 1-0 down to beat the Swans at the Liberty stadium.
The 25-year-old has been in solid form for the Merseyside club this term, scoring three goals and providing two assists in six league appearances.
After the victory at the Liberty stadium, Firmino took to his personal Twitter account to praise the team’s turnaround after going behind to a Leroy Fer goal.
“Great team performance,” Firmino wrote on his personal Twitter account. “Match turned around and fourth consecutive win in the Premier League. Third goal in Premier League = perfect weekend.”
Here is Firmino giving his verdict on Liverpool’s win over Swansea.
Brazilian Firmino has scored 15 goals and provided 14 assists since his £29 million move to Anfield from German side Hoffenheim in 2015.
The win helped Jurgen Klopp’s side register their fifth consecutive win in all competitions. They are currently second in the Premier League table with five wins from seven games, although third-placed Tottenham and leaders Manchester City are due to meet this afternoon.
