[Video Goals] Stoke 1-2 Liverpool: Firmino Stunner Seals Dramatic Comeback

By on April 8, 2017

Liverpool’s two Brazilian attackers came off the bench to turn this game on it’s head as the Reds came from behind to beat Stoke City 2-1 at the Britannia Stadium this afternoon.

Stoke started well and after seeing a goal correctly ruled out for offside, the hosts eventually opened the scoring when Jon Walters headed home from close range to make it 1-0 shortly before half time.

Jurgen Klopp introduced Philippe Coutinho and Roberto Firmino at the break and it turned out to be a masterstroke as both players got on the score-sheet during the second forty-five minutes.

First Coutinho fired home the equaliser with a neat finish in the 70th minute before Firmino raced clear to lash home a stunning volley to make it 2-1 just two minutes later to complete the turn-around.

Liverpool held on to secure a huge win that sees them maintain their third place position in the Premier League table and extend their lead over fifth-placed Arsenal to nine points – although the Gunners have three games in hand.
