Liverpool fans react on Twitter to Firmino display v West Brom
By Amir Mir
Roberto Firmino provided an assist as Liverpool beat West Brom 2-1 at Anfield on Saturday evening- and fans on Twitter hailed his performance throughout the game.
Forward Sadio Mane neatly converted a Firmino cross after 20 minutes to give the hosts the lead, before Phillippe Coutinho added a second just before half-time.
Tony Pulis’ side did claw one back with ten minutes to go, when Gareth McAuley punished Liverpool’s poor defending, but Jurgen Klopp’s side held on for all three points.
One supporter felt it was a toss up between centre-back Joel Matip or Firmino, as to who produced the man-of-the-match display.
Additionally, another fan praised the quartet of Firmino, Coutinho, Mane and Adam Lallana by stating they are the best attacking partnership in the Premier League.
