(Video) Roberto Firmino commended by Liverpool fans for this selfless act during Stoke win

Staying true to cliche, it was another cold and windy night at Stoke but Liverpool did not let the conditions get in their way and struck three goals past the Potters away from home.

An early first-half goal from Sadio Mane and a quick brace from man of the moment Mo Salah after the break gave the reds all three points.

While Salah took all the plaudits again with his quick fire double, Liverpool fans were also impressed by the chivalry on display from Robert Firmino .

When Mane’s shot was partly blocked by Lee Grant and was bobbling towards goal, the Brazilian was perfectly placed to poke it in but decided against nabbing his teammate’s goal, staying put as the ball rolled in.

What makes the attacker’s gesture even more commendable is the fact that the goal could have helped in trigger a goal bonus written in his contract.

In a world of money crazed footballers, the Liverpool mans thoughtfulness was rightly lauded by fans all across Twitter.
