Despite his team-mate Mohamed Salah taking most of the headlines for his outrageous goalscoring exploits this season, many believe it is fellow attacker Roberto Firmino who really makes Jurgen Klopp’s side tick.
The Brazil international has been in excellent goal scoring form himself during this campaign, netting 23 times in all competitions.
Firmino is clearly loving life in England at the moment and in a recent interview with GOAL he revealed who he rates to be the best players in the Premier League. Most fan’s would probably have been able to guess exactly who the Brazil international would name, although the 26-year-old did throw in a few unexpected names …
“We have great players in English football, it’s hard to select one as the outright best,”
“That’s why it’s the most popular league with many quality teams. We can talk about the goalscorers Salah and Harry Kane.”
“We also have Gabriel Jesus, Kevin De Bruyne and Ilkay Gundogan in Manchester City,” added Firmino.
“Paul Pogba and Romelu Lukaku at Manchester United.”
“Moussa Sissoko and Mousa Dembele at Tottenham,”
“Willian and Eden Hazard at Chelsea, Mesut Ozil at Arsenal.”
“Not to mention Mane, Emre Can, Dejan Lovren and the many other good players we have here at Liverpool.
“It is a league with great stars. Virtually everyone I mentioned will be at the World Cup. The level is very high.” Firmino said.
