Many Liverpool fans fumed at forward Roberto Firmino as the Reds crashed to a dismal 1-0 defeat at home to Chelsea on Thursday night.
Jurgen Klopp’s side were inflicted with their fifth-straight Anfield loss – something that has never happened in the club’s history. Mason Mount scored the only goal of the game before half-time as the hosts struggled to piece together any attacking prowess.
Firmino started his 25th game of the 2020/21 campaign and found himself second best for the majority of the encounter.
Per Sofascore, Firmino lost possession 15 times, only had one shot on goal, played no key passes and lost five duels.
Should Liverpool sell Firmino?
In what seems to be a case of ‘same old story,’ supporters once again pointed the finger at Firmino with many suggesting that he should be dropped from the team. He wasn’t the only one who looked like a shadow of his former self, but you can find some of the best fan verdicts down below.
Firmino feels wrath of Kop faithful
“Could we please give Bobby Firmino some time on the bench now? He seems completely lost atm…”
“Firmino should not have stayed on the pitch. So tired of him”
“Firmino is finished. Heads gone.”
“Why on earth was Salah been taken off instead of Firmino, Firmino has been invisible tonight!”
“Also I’m officially done with Firmino as an LFC player. Offers absolutely nothing anymore”
“Get rid of Ox, Gini, Milner, Origi, Firmino all useless”
