Ten interesting things you didn’t know about Roberto Firmino
Liverpool’s Roberto Firmino has begun the season in terrific form as his side currently sit fourth in the Premier League table and only two points behind leaders Manchester City.
His four goals so far this season have contributed heavily to Liverpool’s fantastic run, which has seen them go undefeated in seven games and win five on the bounce – most recently away at Swansea in which the Brazilian forward scored in a hard-fought 2-1 victory.
