The Brazilian attacker claimed the headlines on Tuesday night when he came off the bench to net the victor in Liverpool FC's dramatic 3-2 victory over Paris Saint-Germain in their Champions League opener at Anfield.
The Merseyside outfit continued to dominate the game, but conceded a late equaliser, scored by Kylian Mbappe, before Roberto Firmino, who came off the bench in the 70th minute, netted the victor in added time.
He celebrated in brilliant fashion, covering his eye which was injured against Spurs over the weekend.
However, PSG enjoyed a stroke of luck with the absence of an offside flag in the build-up to Thomas Meunier pulling one back and when Neymar and Kylian Mbappe combined for the latter to score seven minutes from time it appeared the damage had been done.
The signings that Liverpool made in the summer are a big reason why I think they will believe they can go one better in the Champions League this season after finishing runners-up last time out.
A late Firmino substitution for Sturridge turned the game definitively as the Brazilian came on to win the game for Liverpool and send Anfield into raptures.

Sturridge scored for Liverpool in their 3-2 win over Paris Saint-Germain in the Champions League and was one of three former Baggies to feature in the competition on Tuesday night.
Daniel Sturridge, in for Firmino, had opened the scoring for an impressive Liverpool in the 30th minute with a fine header from an Andy Robertson cross.
Firmino then reported for training on Thursday morning sporting a brand new pair of protective glasses, which instantly put Jurgen Klopp in mind of a certain somebody.
Yet it was agonising for PSG, who had looked buried in the first half but showed character to claw themselves back on level terms. I have never seen him as fit as he is in the moment. It may even make Klopp think twice about certain selections, although you'd imagine Firmino is still the gun favorite.
"I don't want to play mind games, this side is built for winning the Champions League".
In what is likely to be a tight group, this meeting of the two teams expected to progress to the round of 16 showcased the strengths and weaknesses of both Liverpool and PSG.
