Steven Gerrard has lavished praise on Roberto Firmino following his sparkling form for Liverpool FC in recent weeks.

The Brazilian attacker has been in fine form for the Merseyside outfit this season and has been earning plenty of praise for his strong performances for Jurgen Klopp’s men.

Firmino was once again in fine form on Wednesday night as he helped to inspire Liverpool FC to a 5-0 thrashing of FC Porto as the Reds all but secured their place in the quarter-finals of the Champions League.

And Liverpool FC legend Gerrard has been thrilled by the way Firmino has been performing for Klopp’s side so far this season.

Speaking to BT Sport on Wednesday night, Gerrard said: “He’s been fantastic this season.

“He was good last year, this season he’s been excellent. You can see it in the statistics, nine goals this time last year. So to have 20 goals this time round…

“I think he complements Mane and Salah very much. He’s the creativity, the cleverness.”

Firmino will be hoping to feature for Liverpool FC when the Reds return to Premier League action next weekend with a home clash against West Ham United.

Klopp’s side are currently in third place in the Premier League table as they chase Champions League qualification for the second season running under Klopp.

Liverpool FC are still searching for their first major trophy since Klopp’s appointment at Anfield back in October 2015.

The Reds finished in fourth place in the Premier League table last term.
