The 24-year-old’s tricky and skillful performances have helped cement his status as a fans’ favourite at Anfield, with manager Jurgen Klopp seemingly becoming more adept at eking out impressive displays from the forward.
But it wasn’t so much his prowess in front of goal, but his gnashers that caught the eye last night, with Klopp’s toothy grin apparently rubbing off on him.
Contributing to a 3-0 victory in the ELF Cup, Firmino was flashing his smile on several occasions throughout – which prompted a good few fans to start taking the piss:

It's quiet on here when we are winning & there's nothing to complain about. Explains why I'm only seeing tweets about Firmino's teeth. #LFC

Firmino’s new teeth are genuinely terrifying. https://t.co/kd3PxVtR51

Reckon Firmino went the same place as Brendan to get his teeth done?

Firmino's suspected whiter-than-white teeth remind me of that 'Friends' episode where Ross gets his teeth ultra-whitened.

Firmino definitely got his teeth done, no way are they natural.

Also, are we going to talk about Firmino's teeth? The guys were laughing at me for bringing it up last night, but they sort of freak me out.

Anyone notice Firmino sparkling white teeth nearly blinded me stream!?

Firmino was as bright as his new teeth. Thought Grujic looked comfortable. Professional performance. Easy win. Job done.

If there’s any chance at all that the Liverpool hierarchy are reading this, we reckon it’s about time you guys got Colgate on board as your new commercial partners.
Toothpaste brands would be falling over themselves to be liked with those!
