The Brazilian striker’s starting place has been in doubt and threat since the summer arrival of Diogo Jota.

Darren Bent told talkSPORT: “I know at one stage his hold up play and the way he brought players into the game, people were making excuses for him about his poor goal return.

 

“But now, it’s time to bring someone in. He could play as a No.10, but then you have to take one of the legs out of the midfield in [Jordan] Henderson, [Georginio] Wijnaldum, Fabinho. Where is he going to fit in?

“So now you need to go out and get another centre-forward. Someone who’s got the pedigree, the calibre to score goals and do everything else.

“Maybe it’s time for Firmino to play second fiddle to someone. There were a couple of seasons where he was very good, he won the league, he was brilliant.
“But you can see already now he’s starting to tail off a bit.”
