Roberto Firmino needs to improve his record in front of goal for Liverpool FC, according to Jamie Redknapp.

The Brazil international scored twice in a 5-0 win against Swansea City at Anfield on Boxing Day to cement fourth spot.

He failed to find the net in Liverpool FC’s 2-1 win against Leicester City in their final game of 2017.

Firmino has scored nine times and has made four assists in 20 appearances in the Premier League.

The 26-year-old has netted 15 goals in 27 games in all competitions to produce his best goal return at Anfield to date.

However, Firmino has a tendency to miss one or two clearcut chances per game despite his impressive record.

Former Liverpool FC captain Redknapp has challenged Firmino to further improve his finishing.

“Firmino is such a talent but at times he can be even more clinical and score more goals,” Redknapp told Sky Sports.
