The Brazilian, who started in a deeper role for the Reds against Neil Warnock's side, was pinned back against his own touch-line whilst tracking back.
Firmino looked to have conceded the ball or given away a corner as he fell to the ground against the on-rushing Víctor Camarasa.
However, he pulled off a crazy bit of skill, nutmegging the Spaniard with a no-look back-heel.
The Reds currently lead 1-0 at the break having dominated possession, with Mohamed Salah scoring his third in two games.
Watch Firmino's excellent skill in all its glory below...
