We need to talk about Roberto Firmino. The forward is not the only player who has been performing below-par of late for Liverpool, and is certainly not a scapegoat for their current predicament. But with his goals decreasing year on year and his overall play having regressed, what is the solution to the problem? Matt Addison and Kai Delaney take a look at Firmino's past, present and future, discussing the underlying numbers, the amount of games he has had to play this season, and how the return of Diogo Jota will help increase the Brazilian's capacity. Firmino is often described as being the entire 'system' for Liverpool, so getting him back to something like his best is vital. Long-term a new signing might be the answer, but short-term, that is not possible - and the Reds need Firmino firing if they are to make it back into the Champions League.
