Gary Neville believes Liverpool FC forward Roberto Firmino is world class.

The Reds star produced a brilliant performance in Liverpool FC’s 3-1 victory over Newcastle United at Anfield on Saturday afternoon.

Firmino came off the bench in the first half to replace the injured Divock Origi despite Jurgen Klopp intending to give the Brazilian a rest.

The 27-year-old pulled the strings in Liverpool FC’s front three as he teed up Sadio Mane and Mohamed Salah for goals in their 3-1 win.

Firmino produced his repertoire of flicks and tricks to bamboozle the Newcastle defence on more than one occasion.

The South American forward was unable to have such a big influence on their 2-0 defeat by Napoli in their Champions League opener on Tuesday night.

However, Jurgen Klopp will be hoping Firmino is back to his best when Liverpool FC make the trip to Chelsea FC on Sunday afternoon.

Although Firmino has proven a key part of Liverpool FC’s attack, he’s often overshadowed by Mane and Salah’s prolific goal record.

Taking part in a Q and A on Twitter on Tuesday afternoon, Neville was asked by one user whether he thinks Firmino is a world-class player.

And Neville simply replied: “Yep.”

Klopp’s predecessor Brendan Rodgers was in charge when Liverpool FC signed Firmino in a £29m deal in 2015.
