Liverpool fans react on Twitter to Firmino's performance against United

Liverpool lost 3-1 to Manchester United on Saturday but what did Reds fans make of Roberto Firmino's contribution?

Liverpool returned from the international break hoping to get a much-needed three points under their belts but instead they suffered a 3-1 defeat at the hands of Manchester United.

In truth Liverpool were poor and the majority of their players did not show the desire needed to get a victory against their fierce rivals, and one player in particular who flattered to deceive is summer signing Roberto Firmino.

The Brazilian signed from German club Hoffenheim earlier this year after scoring 49 goals and providing 36 assists in 153 matches.

But the 23-year-old is yet to get off the mark for his new club and he was replaced in the 65th minute by Jordan Ibe on Saturday.

Firmino was not the only Liverpool player to underperform but he is arguably the most high-profile considering his price-tag.
