Premier League

Why Firmino's potential goalscoring anti-record is irrelevant

Except if Bobby scores against Chelsea on Wednesday, he will have gone the entire Premier League season without a solitary goal at Anfield - which is a serious ripe ground for Firmino's faultfinders. Dan Kay from Liverpool Echo clarifies why this undesirable record is totally inconsequential. 

Above all else, Firmino has scored a lot of essential away goals this season, scoring 8 goals in such imperative clashes as the 4-0 win against Leicester City in December, 2-1 successes against Chelsea, Wolverhampton, etc. 

In addition, Bobby is as yet the center and spine of Klopp's framework as the German himself has as of late said on the goal dry season: "We need Bobby for different things". 

An individual from Liverpool staff later decoded this case (according to Independent): "'No-one works between the lines like him, nobody recoups the ball also for our changes, nobody comprehends and controls space too." 

Bobby's definitive effect doesn't really go into crude insights as he has various supposed helps before helps this season - his splendid over-the-shoulder go in front of Salah's opener against Watford as a sheer mode.

Furthermore, his enlivened, freed style of play consummately compares with his off-the-pitch conduct which is no less significant for the group. 

The most clear model will be his response to Mane's upheaval at Salah in Burnley win last August, a response which set the shameless cheerful tone for the episode in the open eye, fundamentally facilitating the pressure among the fans. 

It's impossible that Bobby will get any goalscoring or helping decorations in his profession yet it doesn't subvert him being presumably the most brilliant Liverpool player since Kenny Dalglish.
