A lacklustre Liverpool found themselves a goal behind at half-time of their UEFA Super Cup clash against Chelsea in Istanbul.

Olivier Giroud opened the scoring after striking the ball beyond Adrian with the Reds nowhere near the levels they can achieve in the first-half.

Manager Jurgen Klopp took action at the break, sending No.9 Roberto Firmino on to clean up Liverpool’s mess.

And within three minutes of coming on, the Brazilian helped Liverpool get on level terms after latching onto Fabinho’s flick before Sadio Mane bundled the ball home.

Since then, Liverpool have been right on the money going forward with Firmino at the centre of it all, helping set up chances for the likes of Jordan Henderson and Fabinho.

Roberto Firmino is definitely the most underrated player in the Premier League if not the world.#LFC

Roberto Firmino is so crucial to this #LFC side. The difference he makes is crazy. Like Van Dijk, he makes everyone around him better.
