Let’s face it, Roberto Firmino very rarely sticks to one position anyway.
The Brazilian has been highlighted by Jurgen Klopp as a candidate to fulfil a different role in place of absentees heading into the winter period.
He told the Liverpool Echo: “Roberto Firmino could play as a kind of a winger which would then just give us two strikers. It is a long way to go from January onwards and that month of January is busy.”
The injury to Danny Ings and Sadio Mane’s likely departure for the African Cup of Nations at the start of next year means Liverpool could have to adopt a new formation.
Firmino has operated as the more central figure to our attacking setup so far this season, but he very regularly finds himself drifting into wider positions in order to join in with the link up play.
His movement comes as one of his most valuable attributes, which is perhaps why Klopp appears happy to move him into a different role.
We know by now how our manager likes to set his side up, which is why we are certain he will give the Brazilian the license to roam free and leave this wider position if required to play in it.
The way Firmino is playing right now, he is an attacking threat from any position.
