What a week it has been for Liverpool.

On Thursday, they sealed a spot in the Europa League final thanks to a comeback win against Villarreal, and while they are well out of the hunt for a top four spot, at the very least they'll be ending their season on a high.

Anfield was certainly rocking today after a 2-0 win against Watford, which came thanks to goals from Joe Allen and Roberto Firmino. 

While Allen has been a superb performer of late, it was Firmino who stole the show this afternoon, adding to his goal with a display of class and skill.

The former Hoffenheim ace has a superb 11 goals and 10 assists to his name in his first Premier League campaign, with the promise of more to come next term.

Of course, adding to his beginning reputation is his knack for pulling off some flashy skills. He left Roberto Soldado for dead with a brilliant turn in mid-week, and while his no-look pass against Watford didn't quite match up to that, it was still pretty impressive.

Liverpool fans were quick to heap praise on the Brazilian after the full-time whistle blew this afternoon, and you can check out the best of the reaction below.

Jurgen Klopp's side have two league games remaining, against Chelsea and West Brom, and while they will want to finish as high in the Premier League as possible, the countdown to the Europa League and the possibility of Champions League qualification has begun. 

And, with Firmino, who has five goals in his last 13 games, in this sort of form anything is possible.

Can Liverpool win the Europa League later this month?
