Liverpool fans obsess over two players during Southampton game

Salah and Firmino

Liverpool stars Mo Salah and Roberto Firmino are the talk of the club this season, and while no one can quite believe just how good Salah has been since joining the club, it seems that one of the most underrated forwards in the Premier League is Roberto Firmino.

Most people talked about Alvaro Morata and Romelu Lukaku in the summer – not to mention the old favourites of Sergio Aguero and Harry Kane, but the Liverpool man has been as impressive – if not quite a bit more impressive than most of them.

He’s been key to their performance and their goals, and has managed to show just why Jurgen Klopp rates him so highly, and why the rest of fans outside of Liverpool have him in their fantasy team and begrudgingly praise him each week.

There’s no doubt the Liverpool attack is one of the best in football, and it’s the defence that has been getting the majority of criticism, but Lloris Karius was impressive in the first half against the Saints, and many people noted just that, with the stopper actually getting a bit of praise for once, instead of being criticised.
