Can Roberto Firmino be the thorn in Arsenal’s side again?

Liverpool face Arsenal at the Emirates Stadium on Saturday.

The Reds are flying high after a solid start of eight wins, two draws and zero defeats.

They lie second behind Manchester City on the same number of points but have a far inferior goal difference.

Standing in Jurgen Klopp’s way of another three points this weekend are a Gunners side who are unbeaten in their last 12 matches under Unai Emery.

The north Londoners have recovered well after losing their first two games to City and Chelsea.

 

They’ll be hoping to bring down Liverpool a peg or two, but to do that they’ll have to be very wary of one player in particular.

Firmino on the brink of history

Roberto Firmino is yet to hit top gear this season, but his recent record against Arsenal is impressive.

In each of his last three league games against the Gunners, he has scored one goal and tabled one assist, as reported by the official Premier League.

Should he replicate that for a fourth consecutive match, he’ll make history by becoming the first player to achieve such a feat.

The Reds have great quality in attack, with Sadio Mane and Mo Salah often theplayers to grab the headlines, but Firmino has proven to be a nightmare for Arsenal, and could be the difference maker once again ths weekend.

The Brazilian has been going well enough, but is probably due the stellar performance that everybody knows he is capable of to get his season truly up and running.
