Stats show Roberto Firmino comfortably Liverpool’s best player ahead of Villarreal clash
Oulala's stats show Roberto Firmino is Liverpool's player of the year
Roberto Firmino has enjoyed a whirlwind first Premier League season following last summer’s switch to Liverpool.
The Brazil international made a slow start to life as a Reds player but the playmaker has been one of Jurgen Klopp’s most-consistent players in 2016.
And these Oulala stats show that Firmino is Liverpool’s player of the year ahead of Thursday night’s clash against Villarreal in the second leg of their Europa League semi-final.
Firmino has scored nine goals and has made seven assists in 29 Premier League games for the 18-time English champions after his big-money switch.
Liverpool’s top goal-scorer in the Premier League has made a further 44 chances for his team-mates, highlighting his ability to create in an attacking midfielder or centre-forward role.
The South American’s silky skills have seen him complete 40 successful take-ons over the course of the Premier League season.
Unsurprisingly given his impressive goal return, Firmino’s shot accuracy is a healthy 55 per cent, too.
