Liverpool boss, Jurgen Klopp, has lauded Roberto Firmino, after he ended his two month Premier League goal drought in their 3-0 victory against Watford.
He also had a hand in Mohamed Salah’s opener on Saturday and won the free-kick for Trent Alexander-Arnold to make it 2-0.
“In the game against Fulham, 20 German coaches were in the stadium,” said Klopp. “I’m not sure how the critics were but when I saw them and we had a drink together, they were saying ‘Bobby Firmino. What a player.’
“Because of the small things he’s doing, he’s working so hard, he’s here, he’s there, he’s got six goals but he opens 5,000 gaps for everybody.”
“He’s doing the job,” added Klopp. “That makes him so unbelievably valuable for us. I’m really happy for him.”
Liverpool who have being unbeaten in the Premier League have 33 points and are just two points behind the leaders, Manchester City.
“I don’t read what you make of it but I sometimes see in your eyes that you don’t understand me,” he said.
“The thing is we have to win football games but people compare a game against Watford with a game against Roma.
“It’s not really the same, but it’s in their mind about the sort of football we played last season. In some games, we played not that nice football and didn’t get a result but nobody remembers it.”
