Sky Sports pundit Jamie Carragher raved about the quality of Reds ace Roberto Firmino, when speaking exclusively to Sky Sports, and made comparisons between the Brazilian and Barcelona superstar Luis Suarez.

The 26-year-old has been in superb for Liverpool this season, scoring 19 goals and chipping in with 10 assists in 35 appearances in all competitions thus far.

Firmino moved to Anfield from Hoffenheim in the summer of 2015, for a fee believed to be worth in the region of £29 million, and what he has brought to the Liverpool side cannot be underestimated.

Carragher, who made 737 appearances for the Reds, is a huge fan of the Brazilian, and highlighted his work-rate as something that makes him the player that he is, when speaking exclusively to Sky Sports:

"Klopp absolutely loves that in terms of the way that he presses teams from the front. There is something about South American players. They just seem to be able to keep going. Klopp said recently that Firmino has one rest day after a game and then he's back on it in training and that's exactly how Luis Suarez was. He never wanted a rest even in training. That is just how some people's bodies are - they seem to be able to deal with anything."

The Merseyside outfit currently sit in third position in the Premier League table, although their place inside the top four is far from secure.

They will need Firmino to be at his very best for the remainder of the campaign, if they are to achieve a successful season, both domestically and on the continent.
