Liverpool need to keep Roberto Firmino fit above all else, says Craig Burley

Liverpool have made an excellent start to the season, and it looks as if they could be on track to win their first-ever Premier League title.

Indeed, the Reds have won each of their opening eight league games this season, and it looks as if they have a great chance of ending their long title drought.

However, despite the fact that some football experts believe the title is Liverpool’s to lose, ESPN’s top pundits claim that there is one thing that could derail their season.

Of course, they were talking about injuries.

Liverpool would be in trouble if any of their key players picked up serious problems, but Craig Burley believes that Roberto Firmino is the one player that the Anfield outfit can’t afford to lose.

Burley’s point about the Brazillian is spot on too.
