Hopefully Firmino can be a super sub.
Oh dear. Turns out he wasn't a super sub.
In PL, Firmino has played 472 minutes (5.24 full games) and scored 2 goals. 236 minutes per goal.
In PL, Sturridge has played 265 minutes (2.94 full games) and scored 1 goal. 265 minutes per goal.
Not much in that is there?
Firmino has had 6 starts. Sturridge 2. Liverpool are said to be far more energetic and threatening at the start of the games, so advantage to Firmino there. Coming on as a sub (as demonstrated today) can be tough going.
Firmino has now gone 223 minutes without a goal. Sturridge is on 189 minutes without a goal.
Look at the stats and stop your obsessive and exaggerated agenda.
Sturridge needs game time to get rythmn. The goals will come - unfortunately, his game time won't. Firmino is not the goal machine you want to pretend he is. He's had far more chances than Danny, and nothing much more to show for it. Mane and Salah were equally wasteful today - but Sturridge is the target. Quelle surprise.
