On the face of it, 12 Premier League goals for the centre-forward in a team chasing the title is not that impressive.
Those are Roberto Firmino’s numbers this season, but the Brazil international brings so much more than goals to Jurgen Klopp’s side.
Indeed, another selfless performance against Southampton on Friday night helped the Merseyside outfit record a 3-1 win, returning to the top of the Premier League table in the process.
Alongside Sadio Mane and Mohamed Salah, Firmino performs a hugely important role for a Liverpool team looking for success in both the Premier League and Champions League in the final weeks of the campaign.
It would be fair to say that the Liverpool supporters loved what they saw from the 29-time Brazil international during the victory over Southampton at St Mary’s.
Mo Salah has been brutally mocked for his recent diving antics in a new video by 442oons. Check it out below…
And a number took to Twitter after the match to lavish praise on the 27-year-old – a selection of which can be seen below:
Never seen a player that’s so selfless like this guy. So happy when his teammates score.
