Glimpses of great quality: Roberto Firmino impresses statistically during first Liverpool start

Roberto Firmino flashed some of his ability during Liverpool's 0-0 draw with Arsenal.

Liverpool have still yet to concede a goal in the Premier League this season following a 0-0 draw away at Arsenal on Monday night.

The Reds had the better of the first half against Arsene Wenger's side and will be cursing their luck having seen two Philippe Coutinho strikes hit the woodwork, whilst Christian Benteke was denied from close range by a superb Petr Cech save.

They had to withstand heavier pressure in the second half, but Liverpool were good value for their point - and arguably deserved more.

Supporters were also given a glimpse of new signing Roberto Firmino, who arrived from Bundesliga outfit Hoffenheim in a big-money move earlier this summer.

The Brazilian has so far been limited to cameo appearances from the bench having played at Copa America, but he was handed a starting role against Arsenal - here are some of his more interesting stats from the game.

Firmino was impressive in the first half, showing a number of nice touches and he was one of Liverpool's most creative players with three chances created, as well as eight successful passes in the final third.

With four successful dribbles, Firmino showed his technical ability, whilst he also hit two shots on goal before being substituted on 63 minutes for Jordon Ibe.

Firmino was able to flash some of his great quality in this game, and given that he will get sharper and more adjusted to English football, Liverpool may just have a key player on their hands.
