Roberto Firmino Is A Good Striker But He Needs To Improve On Two Aspects Of His Game

Roberto Firmino is a good striker, but there are some things that he needs to work on to become a great striker. The world-class strikers in the Premier League like Harry Kane, Aubameyang and others in Europe like Lewandowski, Aguero etc. score on a consistent level and that is one thing that Roberto Firmino lacks as a Liverpool player.

For him to be rated with the likes of Harry Kane, Lewandowski and others, he has to work on the following aspects of his game.

1. The speed of his game; Roberto Firmino needs to increase the speed of his game. He is playing with two of the fastest wingers in the English Premier League, which are Mohammed Salah and Sadio Mane. The two wingers are very fast and skillful. If Firmino wants to score regularly, he should be as fast as those two players are.

When a winger is on the run and the striker is there in the box, he would have no other option than to cross in the ball. Firmino needs to use the physical ability of Salah and Sadio Mane to score more goals. He is in front of the goal, so he should score more goals than Salah and Mane.

2. He needs to work on his dribbling skill. As a striker, he needs to have the ability to take on the defenders. Both Salah and Mane score some beautiful solo goals, he can do it as well. He is a more clinical scorer than so many EPL strikers. If he learns to take on the defenders in games, then he would be competing with the top scorers in the league like Jamie Valdy, Mohammed Salah, Mane and others.

His latest hat-trick against Watford should be the morale booster that he needs. He should be more agile to score more goals.
