Liverpool forward Roberto Firmino isn’t in the finest form of his career right now, but his encouraging performance against Manchester United in the FA Cup at least offers a glimmer of light for supporters.
The Brazilian has been one of our most important players going forward over the last few years, but even the world’s best false-nine can’t escape criticism for missing clear-cut chances he really should be scoring.
Firmino was much more like his typical self against United, though – setting up Mo Salah for both of his goals. Hopefully the duo can take this momentum into the Premier League fixtures and claw their way back up the table.
