There’s a mind-boggling Roberto Firmino stat doing the rounds among Liverpool fans currently

Liverpool have been relentless ever since the arrival of Jurgen Klopp at Anfield back in 2015.

With the help of a deadly frontline, the German has molded the Reds into an absolute juggernaut of a side in world football.

The trio of Mohamed Salah, Sadio Mane, and Roberto Firmino has amassed a total of 49 goals and 33 assists in all competitions this season.

Although the likes of Salah and Mane usually grab the limelight, the ones who closely watch Liverpool play would know that the Brazilian’s presence is crucial for the Liverpool attack to function the way it does.

Firmino’s creativity with the ball and intelligent manipulation of space allows his teammates to exploit the opposition defense.

Also, his hold-up play and constant tracking back to win possession are heavily lauded by the Liverpool faithful.

Despite being often deployed as a ‘false nine,’ the 28-year-old has consistently been able to hit double figures in goals scored tally along with racking up dozens of assists.

Definitely a darling of the Anfield faithful, but even the most staunchest of Reds fan wouldn’t have imagined the Brazilian to rank so highly in the list below –

In between the presence of these Liverpool legends stands Firmino, who ranks 3rd on the list with 59 assists in just 234 appearances with the Reds.
