The Reds found themselves struggling during the early stages of their fourth home match of the season as David Moyes’ side were set up to frustrate the reigning Premier League champions, managing just one shot on goal during the first half (via talkSPORT).
Firmino has had a slow start to the season and had to wait until the final home game of their title-winning campaign to get his first goal at Anfield in the league.
Liverpool’s first half performance was a complete contrast as to what Jurgen Klopp’s side produced last season, particularly from Firmino, who has been part of their formidable front three for the past three campaigns.
Should Roberto Firmino be dropped?
With this in mind, many supporters were heavily critical of the Brazil international, with some going as far as saying that he should be sold next summer.
Roberto Firmino slammed by Kopites
Genuinely can’t tell if Firmino’s form dropped off a cliff or if I’m just frustrated. #LIVWHU

In other news, Liverpool fans lose patience with man who is ‘made of quavers’.
