How has Roberto Firmino gone from playing so exceptionally against Manchester City, to being so dire in his three matches since…?
So impressive was the Brazilian at the Etihad, there’s no way we’re labelling him a flop just yet, but his outings against Swansea, Newcastle and FC Sion have frankly not been acceptable.
Last night’s performance against the Swiss led many Liverpool fans to take to Twitter, puzzled or angry by the way the £29m forward’s been playing.
What’s your opinion, Reds? Will the 24-year-old improve now Coutinho is fit and back in the side? Or does he need a rest?

Firmino has been abysmal and played almost the entire 90 v Sion. Can’t see him starting.

Firmino been worryingly anonymous. Not got on the ball in any areas to do damage; looked at Klopp then as if he was expected to be subbed

Need to give Firmino a week off maybe, he looks absolutely shattered, huge talent but hugely off form. Bring in Coutinho

@MarkLouis81 your spot on there. So many ppl backing firmino like he’s a player that can’t be criticised and he’s been shite, bar city game

@LivEchoLFC @IanDoyleSport Is Firmino’s failing a lack of trying or quality? Or just a bad spell?
