Firmino has come under intense scrutiny after only getting one goal to his name all season, but his manager has stuck by him (cited by the Daily Mail), even though he only managed to find the net once at Anfield during the Reds’ Premier League title-winning campaign last year.
Sofascore recorded that Firmino failed to make any key passes during the game, and that he had no shots on goal and only made one successful dribbling attempt.
Should Roberto Firmino be dropped?
With this in mind, supporters are rapidly beginning to lose patience with the Brazil international, who appears to be stuck in a rut that he can’t get himself out of.
Fans fume at under-performing Firmino
I am done with Firmino bruh.
He’s actually useless.
He’s turned from an average to a pathetic footballer all round.

So unimpressed with Firmino again today. Doesn’t offer anything offensively, never feel like he’s going to score. Not sure what’s happened in the last 16 months or so. #LFC

Seriously need to consider selling Firmino. He’s not good enough. #LFC
