Anfield has not been a good hunting ground for Manchester City as once again Liverpool got the better of the Manchester outfit in a game where the visitors were completely outplayed.

James Milner, Jon Flanagan, Adam Lallana and Roberto Firmino were all on top of the game showing the strength and mettle that Jurgen Klopp wants his team to put forth every time they step out on to the field.

Firmino in particular was once again superb with his movement and energy in the final third after he missed out in the League Cup final at Wembley.

The Brazilian scored his 6th goal in the last 7 games for Liverpool at Anfield on Thursday and was rather happy about finding the net and adding to Liverpool’s two goal lead in the second half.

He explained the celebrations that followed the goal after the game. The attacking mid-fielder took it to Instagram today to reveal the real reasons behind his celebration on Thursday.

Firmino shoved the ball under his jersey a move that made Manchester City keeper Joe Hart frustrated as he tried to retrieve it and start the game quickly.

The Brazilian seemed to have no idea why Hart was trying to get the ball from him, and pushed it behind his back to further infuriate the ‘keeper.

However, he went on to explain in his social media post that the celebrations were dedicated to his new child born just a couple of months ago.

Firmino found it hard at the beginning to settle into life in England but has been sensational off late for the Reds. He has found the net consistently in the last few games and has also provided Liverpool with a dynamic approach to the game.

He is an important player in Klopp’s plans and will have to show the same level of intensity and consistency for the rest of the season to go into the next season on a high.
