Comparing Roberto Firmino’s heatmap for the 17/18 season to Romelu Lukaku’s

Brazilian striker Roberto Firmino has been an integral part of Liverpool’s free-flowing attacking football this season.

Mohamed Salah is the club’s top scorer but Firmino has racked up 27 goals and 17 assists in all competitions.

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp has regularly praised the 26-year-old frontman, who was recently handed a new long-term deal at Anfield.

“He’s very important,” Klopp told Liverpoolfc.com earlier in 2018.

“Roberto delivers, delivers and delivers. He doesn’t score all the time, he is not always brilliant, but if he is not brilliant then he works like a horse. It’s very important that you have this kind of stability there.”

Liverpool fans were delighted when Firmino committed his future to the club at the end of April.

The Reds – who are due to face Real Madrid in the Champions League final on May 26 – have just one Premier League game remaining and need a single point at home to Brighton to secure a top four spot.
