      Gerrard (21) is the only Liverpool player that has more CL goals than Bobby (11), of I remember what I read on ESPN correctly.

      He looked off the pace at the start of the season, but seems to be clicking into gear now; 3 goals in 3??

      My favorite player. I just love the way he plays the game and I love his enthusiasm. Reminds me of Torres in that way.

      Stevie raves about Bobby ..


      Roberto Firmino: Steven Gerrard says forward is 'the key' to Liverpool

         
      Brazil forward Roberto Firmino is "the key" to Liverpool's "best squad for a very long time", says former captain Steven Gerrard.

      Jürgen Klopp's side are top of the Premier League after winning all six of their top-flight games this season.

      Firmino, 26, has two goals and two assists in the league, and also scored the winner against Paris St-Germain in the Champions League.

      "Firmino is an absolute genius when you watch him close up," said Gerrard.

      "He's as interested in setting up a goal as scoring one."

      Rangers manager Gerrard acknowledged Liverpool's other frontline forwards - Mohamed Salah and Sadio Mane - are vital to their success but added: "The key is Firmino."

      Speaking to BBC Radio 5 live, he added: "They've got decent back-up - if they were to lose Salah or Mane, Daniel Sturridge seems to be in good shape and scoring goals and then they've got Divock Origi and Dominic Solanke."

      Liverpool signed Firmino from Hoffenheim in 2015, shortly after Gerrard's final season as a Reds player. The former England midfielder returned to Anfield as a youth coach until his move to Ibrox in May.

      "Every time I received the ball he was always available and looking for other players - he's a dream to play with," said Gerrard.

      Gerrard won the Champions League, the Uefa Cup, two FA Cups and three League Cups during his 17 seasons at Anfield but said his Liverpool sides "were short in certain positions" in failing to win the Premier League title.

      "I look at Liverpool now and can't find any weaknesses when they're at full strength," he said.

      "This is a lot stronger than the team I played in - it's Liverpool's best squad for a very long time.

      "The only thing they haven't got going for them is the experience. As someone who went very close, we lacked that experience."
      'Milner is in the form of his life'

      Gerrard also said the standard of James Milner's performances this season has given summer signings Naby Keita and Fabinho the time to "find their feet" in Liverpool's midfield.

      "Milner is causing them selection problems. He's in the form of his life," he said.

      "On current form he is the first name on the teamsheet."

      And Gerrard added that goalkeeper Alisson, who joined from Roma this summer in a deal worth up to a reported £66.8m, and centre-back Virgil van Dijk, a £75m signing from Southampton in January, have "made a big difference".

      "Liverpool have looked a different animal since Van Dijk came in and Alisson brings more composure and trust," he said.

      "In time that'll be the big difference - the front three will always score goals and the midfielders back them up too - but it's all been about trying to improve defensively and they're very close."


      All true Stevie ... you'll never know how much we wanted you to get a title medal to complete the set.

      Legend.

      Probably the worst game I've seen Bobby play. Honestly lost count of the amount of misplaced passes he did.

      Same can be said for all the forward players. Completely out of form.

      The team is disjointed maybe the influx of players has caused a bit of disruption but imagine what we will be like when we click

      Said it in the match thread, but I think the single biggest reason we are bit off just now ( even though the results are still ok) is Bobby's poor form up front.

      He is the one who leads our press from the front, and he just isn't doing it with the same intensity as usual. Our whole high press seems to be suffering. Likewise, when we are in possession he is not providing the central focal point of attack that he did last year. That pass to him up front never seems to be on. I'm not seeing him get the ball up top, take 2 or 3 touches to allow Mo and Sadio to run off him, and then play them in. Mane and Salah always seem to be trying to play each other in, while Bobby is somewhere behind the play.

      So it seems to me anyway. I had a look for his stats but couldn't find any for this season. My thoughts are that he is maybe not 100% fit for whatever reason. ( He is definitely way off form.) I'd be thinking of playing Mo up top, and Shaq wide for a game or 2. See how it goes and give Bob some R n R.

      Yep was Daniel even on the bench? Thought he should have come on for Bobby who was invisible for most of the game.

      The bigger worry is the all round game which seems to be off . Would definitely be playing Sturridge on Tuesday especially now that the pressing duties are not needed as much with how we are currently  playing
