Firmino’s flick, branded ‘spicy’ by Thierry Henry on Monday Night Football, set up Salah for Liverpool’s second goal in the 2-0 win over Southampton.

So goal for Salah, assist for Firmino – and plenty of fantasy football points for both Alex and Tyler.

And considering they both had the same Dream Team Weekender side, that goal proved to be enough to earn a 50/50 share of the £10k prizepot by just a single point from the rest of the field.

After Sergio Aguero’s madness against Leicester the day before, both Dream Team fanatics needed Firmino and Salah to register big scores against the Saints.

And they did the business.
