Twitter noticed what a difference the Anfield crowd made for Roberto Firmino against Wolves

Despite not being on the scoresheet, it was clear that Roberto Firmino was back to his best as he dished out a karate kick pass to start a counter attack and unleashed nutmegs for fun in the 4-0 win against Wolverhampton Wanderers last night.

After a difficult start to the season, the Brazilian seems to be slowly getting back to his best in the last couple of weeks with the goal against Leicester City really helping his confidence.

The former Hoffenheim forward has been criticised heavily for his performances in the past few months with many questioning his place in the starting XI.

Bu none of that criticism was on display last night as the Liverpool number 9 delivered an exceptional first half performance at Anfield.

Fans are back, Firmino is back

Around 2,000 supporters watched on from inside Anfield as the champions played a game in front of their fans for the first time since March.

The scene was set from the beginning when the handful of fans delivered a goosebumps-inducing rendition of “You’ll Never Walk Alone” before kick-off.

As it turns out, the only thing Bobby Firmino needed was to have the fans back in the stadium!

The Brazilian fed off the energy as the fans sang his chant for fours straight minutes during a point in the game.

Twitter noticed the same as brilliant comparisons with Pele, Ronaldo (original) and Ronaldinho made its way online, check out the reaction below-
