Magical Roberto Firmino ‘assist of the season’ to Mohamed Salah vs Leicester

In the 66th minute of this afternoon’s Premier League encounter between Leicester and Liverpool, the Reds took the lead after a moment of sheer magical.

Firmino, who was under fierce pressure from Jonny Evans and Wilfried Ndidi, somehow managed to lay the ball off to Mohamed Salah with a mesmerising spinning backheel.

Trent Alexander-Arnold tried his luck with a long-range pass, which was deflected back into his path, leaving the right-back to slot the ball to Roberto Firmino.

Salah tucked the ball into the back of the net with a wonderful first-time finish.
