    Two stunning performances from Roberto Firmino on the spin.

    12 goals ain't a bad tally at this stage at all. Plus you then add what he gives you in a game in addition to the goals. Its working!

    All this "Firmino makes Mane and Salah score more" is the same nonsense as Wijnaldum knitting it all together for us.
    Evidence suggests he does though surely.

    I still say fix the midfield first, get more solid, we'll score as many goals anyway. Look to upgrade where its needed the most first. Firmino isn't a problem for us in the slightest.

    What a player, fits like a glove with the pace of Mane and Salah in behind, such a great player to play with. He really likes doing the little things for others, and working his socks off, on top of that he is a very intelligent player with superb skills.

    It does fit very well and its horrible to defend against. Owen has a good balanced opinion on all of this.

    “Liverpool spread their goals around and if they played with an out-and-out striker, a real No.9, then maybe they wouldn’t have the fluency and movement that they are showing at the moment.

    “It suits the way they are playing and the style right now but if a top centre forward was available I don’t think Jurgen Klopp is against having one.”

    DOK is right though when he says we have bigger priorities

    Doesn't mean you can't strengthen another area but the priority needs to be our biggest weakness

    We don't need to improve on Firmino, we need to improve on Sturrdige. Just someone, who can play this type of football and actually sprint (and not get injured). Sturridge can't do high intensity anymore.

    Seeing that we might be using Salah as a striker a lot in the future, I wouldn't be surprised if we sign a wide attacker again at some point, whoever that might be.

    Personally I don't think you can improve on Firmino in the role he plays - Which in our set ups is nominally a cf.
    I struggle to think of any player in Europe who could do the role as well.

    Yes he won't gat as many goals as Neymar, Ronaldo, Messi but he will win the ball on the counter break more than any attacking player in Europe is a genius for his vision and skill inside the box.
    If we were to get a Striker - it definetly won't be to replace Firmino - He is irreplaceable.
    Also I think working with a manager who truly uses his potential - Klopp - Must be priceless.
