We’ve become so accustomed to Roberto Firmino racking up exceptional defensive stats, we’d more more surprised if he wasn’t at the top of this list…
But as per usual, the Brazilian has made more tackles so far this season than any other forward in Europe’s biggest leagues, with nine.
Roberto Firmino has won more tackles (9) than any other striker in Europe’s top 5 leagues so far this season.

Bobby scored at the weekend with a header, his first of the campaign, in what was an improved performance in the victory over Leicester City.
Firmino hasn’t looked fully fit in every game so far, but he’s still registered two assists and is a vital cog in our frontline.
The truth is that our world-class front-three hasn’t actually clicked yet, but Sadio Mane has got four goals and Mo Salah two!
Once they hit their stride, and Naby Keita reaches his top level as well, we’re quite capable of blowing sides away this season.
