Latest Liverpool news: Roberto Firmino sets one up and scores another as Brazil defeat Argentina 2-0

Roberto Firmino had an average season last time around when it came to goals scored.

The Brazilian worked his socks off for Liverpool last season, however, he only mustered 12 Premier League goals from 34 games.

The 27-year-old also looked a tad out of form during the second half of the season, but Sadio Mane and Mohamed Salah were doing their bit by racking up the goals.

Firmino’s campaign was also hurt by an injury during the latter stages of the season, and he looked off the pace in the Champions League final win over Tottenham.

The Brazilian was chosen as a part of the Copa America side, and he seems to be back to his best.

Firmino knocks out Argentina

Brazil facing their arch-rivals Argentina is always a huge game, and their most recent clash was in the Copa America semi-finals.

Firmino was great during the game as he first set up Gabriel Jesus for the opener after 19 minutes.

The Liverpool star then scored the second with an instinctive finish and ensured he had a chance of lifting another trophy this season.

The 27-year-old is still an integral part of the team and hopefully, he is back to his best next season.

The Reds also had Alisson in fine form against Argentina, and the Brazilian has not conceded a goal in his last nine games for club and country.

Ditching a corporate job to follow a dream isn’t easy, but when football comes calling, who can say no? Been following the beautiful game since 1998. Liverpool addict, F1 fanatic!

Xherdan Shaqiri and Jurgen Klopp

Liverpool have reportedly received inquiries regarding squad players Dejan Lovren and Xherdan Shaqiri.

Klopp will not sanction any sales this month. The German wants to keep his first-team together until the end of the season.

Liverpool are currently involved in three competitions and had only recently been stretched to the limit by injuries to key personnel. With the club looking on course to breaking the title drought, Klopp will need every player to step and be counted when required.

Liverpool are a well-drilled team that have picked up the habit of being serial winners. With the team looking on course for the Premiership, it is hard to imagine anyone wanting to quit the team this January.

Italian giants AS Roma are keen to bring in Xherdan Xhaqiri for the injured Nicolo Zaniolo while backup center back Dejan Lovren too has been attracting attention from Roma and AC Milan.

After Klopp’s comments, it is safe to say that neither player will be going anywhere.At least until the summer.
