Thiago’s quality “is in a different level” than Roberto Firmino’s, according to Garth Crooks of the BBC. The Brazilian is receiving glowing reviews
On Saturday afternoon, Liverpool was saved by Roberto Firmino. The Reds had given up a 2-0 lead against Brighton at Anfield when he scored two goals to get his team back in the game.
Of course, the final score was 3-3, but it would have been embarrassing without Firmino. He made a significant difference for Liverpool, not for the first time.
Garth Crooks, writing for the BBC, praised that. Firmino was included to his Team of the Week, and he praised him for being one of Liverpool’s key players.
Bobby Firmino had two high-caliber finishes, according to Crooks. The Brazilian might not have the stamina necessary to maintain a regular spot in Jurgen Klopp’s squad anymore.
But Firmino is the man to turn to for a level head in front of goal, especially when the going gets tough. He can bring your side back on track.
Then Crooks launched into a weird tirade about Thiago’s lack of running. The criticism of Firmino is actually finished with a comparison to the Spaniard.
“Thiago undoubtedly has his moments, but if we compare their contributions and the value each player brings to the squad, Firmino is in a different class,” says the author.
superiority of Roberto Firmino
The only person who is at a higher class than Thiago is possibly Lionel Messi. It’s true—the midfielder is that good.
Even though this is the first time we’ve heard praise for Firmino as a skilled goal scorer, it’s still encouraging to see him receive well-deserved recognition. The Brazilian is many things, but we’re not sure he’s a center-forward.
But there’s no denying that Firmino is currently the best goal scorer around. Now, he has scored five Premier League goals in six games, equal his total from 20 games last season.
At this rate, Firmino will likely land a new deal and may even determine Liverpool’s future.
