The player has flattered to deceive at times throughout the course of the campaign, but Klopp was certainly impressed with the club's summer recruit on Wednesday night. 

Speaking after his side's clash against Arsenal, the Liverpool boss stated: “I could talk about this for half an hour, but to be honest I think it should be normal because I know how good he is. If you are good, you have to show it and tonight he did.

Brilliant Firmino

“It was very important for us because for 95 minutes, he was always thinking about playing in different positions and in all of them was really good.

“He made perfect goals – the first was really good, the second spectacular, brilliant… whatever you want to say! It was a really good game.”

Firmino is quickly establishing himself as a big-game player for Liverpool. Before the Arsenal clash, his best match for the club came against Manchester City - he scored a fine goal in a 4-1 win for the Reds - so fans will now be hoping he takes his current form into Sunday's showdown against Manchester United. 

The clash against the Red Devils represents the biggest game of the season for the Merseyside outfit, who will be desperate to secure all three points in their pursuit of climbing the Premier League table.
