Some Liverpool fans love what Mauricio Pochettino has told Sky Sports

A number of Liverpool fans have taken to Twitter to praise Mauricio Pochettino and Roberto Firmino after the Argentinian coach picked the Anfield forward in his top three Premier League players outside of Tottenham Hotspur.

Firmino has been sensational for Liverpool since joining the Reds in the summer of 2015 from Hoffenheim, clocking up 235 competitive appearances, scoring 77 goals and claiming 59 assists.

Part of the best attacking trident in world football, the Brazilian is often the spearhead of Liverpool’s gegenpress, his movement and off-the-ball work helping to bring the best out of Mohamed Salah and Sadio Mane.

Pochettino paid homage to Firmino’s contributions to the Anfield side’s improvement and successes over the past few years by naming the 28-year-old alongside Manchester City duo Kevin De Bruyne and Sergio Aguero.

When asked by Sky Sports who he deems to be the top three non-Spurs Premier League players, he replied: “De Bruyne, one. Aguero, another? De Bruyne is going to be unfair, I don’t know what I can tell you, Firmino, maybe? Yes. But there are hundreds of players I can describe.”

Firmino has come under some criticism by neutrals in the past, but Liverpool fans are well aware of his all-round play and contributions to the team, as are fellow peers like Thierry Henry, who deemed him the most complete striker in the league.

And the Anfield faithful were pleased to hear Pochettino pick the Brazilian in his top three:
