Stat underlines Roberto Firmino’s awful Liverpool performance

Roberto Firmino had a forgettable Sunday afternoon at Watford

Roberto Firmino was one of Liverpool’s biggest disappointments in Sunday’s 3-0 loss to Watford.

The Brazil international has failed to kick on since his impressive display in Liverpool’s outstanding 4-1 victory over Manchester City at Etihad Stadium in November.

Firmino scored his first Premier League and made his first assist in the top-flight at Eastlands, but the £29m summer signing hasn’t contributed much since that memorable win.

And the below stat from Squawka highlights Firmino’s ineffective performance against the Hornets at Vicarage Road on Sunday afternoon.

Firmino became Liverpool’s third-most expensive signing of all-time behind Andy Carroll and Christian Benteke after the midfielder moved to Liverpool in a £29m deal from Bundesliga side Hoffenheim in the summer transfer window.

The 24-year-old playmaker has scored one goal and has made two assists in 14 Premier League games so far, racking up 644 top-flight minutes for the Merseyside outfit.

Liverpool are in ninth place in the Premier League table.
