Alan Shearer reacts to Roberto Firmino’s display in Liverpool’s 3-2 loss to Swansea

Alan Shearer has his say on Roberto Firmino's display after a thrilling clash between Liverpool and Swansea at Anfield...

Alan Shearer took to social media to praise Roberto Firmino after the Brazilian’s brace ended up not being enough for Liverpool against Swansea City on Saturday.

After a goalless first half at Anfield, the Reds fell behind on Merseyside in the 48th minute when Fernando Llorente scored from close range.

The Swans then went 2-0 up when Llorente doubled the visitors’ lead at Anfield just four minutes later.

Liverpool battled back, however, and Firmino pulled a goal back for the hosts in the 55th minute when he headed home.

The Reds were then level in the 68th minute when the Brazilian netted his second goal of the afternoon on Merseyside with a low finish into the corner.

And that prompted England legend Shearer to tweet:

Former Liverpool man Neil Mellor also chimed in:

However, Swansea clearly hadn’t read the script, as Gylfi Sigurdsson fired the visitors ahead once again in the 73rd minute at Anfield.

And that prompted Ruud Gullit to have the final say on social media after Liverpool slumped to a disappointing defeat at Anfield…
