It has been reported that the 26-year-old - who can operate as a forward or as a winger - will feature for Liverpool in their Premier League match against Tottenham away from home at Wembley Stadium in London on Saturday afternoon.
The Brazil international featured for Brazil in their match against El Salvador this week.
Firmino has been on the books of Liverpool since the summer of 2015 when he joined from Hoffenheim for a transfer fee reported by BBC Sport to be worth £29 million and earns £100,000 per week as salary, according to Spotrac.com.
According to The Express, Brazil international goalkeeper Alisson will also start for Liverpool against Tottenham, while his compatriot and 24-year-old defensive midfielder Fabinho will be on the substitutes’ bench.
Liverpool are in great form at the moment and will be confident of winning against Tottenham.
Spurs, though, will have home advantage for Saturday afternoon's match, and one should not be surprised if manager Mauricio Pochettino’s side pick up all three points from the encounter.
