      For Brazil he has 16 in 47 - one in every 3


      For Liverpool he has 79 is 256 - one in every 3



      What is he in the last 18 months?

      Love bobby to bits but the guy isn't a machine. He is out of form and thats OK ... hes a class act.

      Shaq Jota Mane is my 3 today.

      In the last 18 months he was a key player in a team that won the title - it’s bad enough when rivals point fingers at Firmino but then his own fans start doing it.

      Key player is pushing it a bit there lad. Mane and Mo were bigger key players up front. Look at that goal scoring stat about home league games last season, it wasn't good enough, simple as.

      Hes key to how effective Mane and Mo are though

      Look at how the other players talk about him

      Yes he goal scoring record isnt amazing but the work he does for others is. If he scored 10 more a season but Mane and Mo scored less as a balance would fans be happier?

      Inclusion of Thiago and Shaq getting more game time should change that especially Thiago once he's fully up to game fitness.

      The way the whole squad talk about him is different, a good thing like, shows the squad have got each others back, team morale etc.

      Just personally think the last six months have seen a drop in form and performances from Bobby.

      I think Bobby does look a bit goosed to be honest, and I think he more than anyone in the squad needs a full Anfield or away end

      Hes probably desperate to hear Si Senor just as much as we want to sing it

      We won't know this mate unless Jota plays 20 games or so this season next to Mo and Mane to see how the stats compare.

      The reason why Mane and Mo were key were because of Firmino and all the work Bobby does on the pitch - and it looks like a lot of it unnoticed as well. Does it matter if he doesn’t score at home as long as he is doing the exact job the manager wants - and from what Klopp has said many times it’s not about scoring goals for Bobby

      I remember there was an interview with Firmino not long ago, where he said he went to Klopp, worried that he wasn't scoring enough goals.

      Klopps answer? "Just keep doing what you're doing".
      He's stated so many times that Firmino's game is not about goals.

      Might be an idea for some to take that on board.

      Agree, so we can also agree the last six months have definitely seen a drop in those standards from Bobby. If you can't see it take the rose tinted glasses off lid!!

      You can't... because he hasn't. But there are supporters so loyal to Bobby they would rather see him play with one leg than be dropped. And would still convince themselves he should be starting.

      That being said I would love to see Bobby back to his 18-19 season form as he was immense back then.

      Hopefully he can recapture some of that tonight.

      I remeber a couple key goals vs Wolves and Spurs just after Christmas when we had a tough run but I think his 19/20 can summarized in not many goal but he came up good when we needed it.

      Needs to build on it now and kick on back to the level he was at around a year ago.

      A welcome return of the real Bobby Firmino tonight.

      Hopefully this kick starts him back to his world class best.
