Thierry Henry analyses Roberto Firmino’s brilliance

Thierry Henry takes a look at Roberto Firmino's superb performance against Southampton on Sunday, both in defence and attack.

The Brazilian both scored and assisted during the 2-0 win at St Mary's, with his backheel for Mohamed Salah's second goal in particular admired by Henry.

On Monday Night Football, the Sky Sports pundit analysed how Firmino came to his decision as Saints defender Jack Stephens closed in, allowing Salah some extra time to get into space and slot home the pass.

But it was not just up front where the Liverpool forward contributed, he was also strong with his defensive duties, including tracking back in midfield to stifle the Southampton defence, as Henry highlighted in his analysis.
