Roberto Firmino: I'm loving life at Liverpool… but I always want more

Roberto Firmino: I'm loving life at Liverpool… but I always want more”

It's great but it could be better.

United, of course, has only given up two goals since the start of the campaign, but their visit to Merseyside will be their first real test of what's still a relatively new season - and Liverpool's front three will be unlike anything they've faced.

The 26-year-old, now away on worldwide duty with Brazil, has contributed 27 goals in 101 appearances in all competitions since signing from Hoffenheim in 2015.

Higginbottom highlighted that Firmino needs to do much more, saying, "I think so, yeah definitely (we expect more from Firmino)".

"Mo's always making great runs behind the last line and against Burnley I saw an opportunity to play the ball at the right time. It's very good for the entire team", continued Firmino, going on to say, "They are really nice lads, good people and I hope that we can help Liverpool to the absolute maximum to play well".

"I was a little deeper in the recent home game with Burnley, a more disciplined role that means I can't always go forward and be around the opponents' box. Ever since I received the proposal to come to Liverpool, I've been happy", Firmino added after recently celebrating his 26th birthday to enter his prime years as a footballer. I'm very happy; it's a very good club at a very high level.

"I hope I can get another 100 games for Liverpool and to achieve a lot of good things; to win as many trophies as possible and achieve success".

Firmino, who was an unused substitute as Brazil drew 0-0 with Bolivia on Thursday, is expected to sign a new contract with Liverpool in the coming weeks, reflecting how important he has become in Klopp's side.

He is now contracted to the club until the summer of 2020.
