“Towards the end of last season, Roberto Firmino didn’t play as often as he would like. He was a regular at one point and played nearly every game.”

Together, Mo Salah, Roberto Firmino, and Sadio Mane contributed 495 goals throughout the course of their five-year playing partnership. Together, they scored 338 goals and 157 assists.

The front three alone average 1100 goals every season.

“Then there’s Sadio Mane, Mohamed Salah and Luis Díaz, who got shifted into the side ahead of Firmino.”

“You’ve always got to be at the top of your game for clubs like Liverpool because they need to keep progressing, it will be interesting to see.”

“I hope Darwin Nunez hits the ground running. I see Firmino being a backup player to him. If they can get Firmino back to the form he was at a couple of seasons ago, it’s another great dimension for Liverpool.”

“But this will probably be his last year, or he might do until January.”
