Roberto Firmino soaked up the rays with his wife at the beach as the Liverpool midfielder made the most of a short, spring break.

The Brazil international was one of Liverpool’s standout players on Thursday night as Jurgen Klopp’s side were 2-0 winners against Manchester United.

The Reds secured a commanding first-leg lead in their last-16 clash after Daniel Sturridge scored from the penalty spot before Firmino added a second for the hosts.

Liverpool aren’t in action again until the return trip to United at Old Trafford next Thursday night as Louis van Gaal’s side were in action against West Ham in the FA Cup quarter-final on Sunday.

And Firmino posed for a selfie with his wife Larisa on a sun-drenched beach in a warmer clime as the Brazilian caught some sun ahead of a big week for Liverpool.
