Liverpool haven’t had too much to cheer about in recent weeks but Roberto Firmino’s impressive form is a big positive for the Reds.

The Brazil international initially made an underwhelming start to his Liverpool career following a £29m summer move from Bundesliga side Hoffenheim.

However, Firmino has found his feet in the Premier League over the past six weeks or so in the absence of compatriot Philippe Coutinho.

The South American scored his sixth Premier League goal of the season in Liverpool’s 2-2 draw with Sunderland at Anfield on Saturday afternoon.

These stats shown on BBC’s Match Of The Day highlight just how good Firmino has been for Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp in 2016.

Firmino started his impressive run with a brace in a 3-3 draw with Arsenal at Anfield last month.

The Brazilian was on the score sheet twice and made a goal in Liverpool’s crazy 5-4 victory over Norwich.
