Some Liverpool fans have taken to Twitter to give their reaction to manager Jurgen Klopp’s comments about Roberto Firmino being fit against Arsenal.
Liverpool manager Klopp has said that Brazilian forward Firmino is available to feature in the Premier League game against Arsenal away from home at the Emirates Stadium on Saturday evening.
The Brazil international attacker – who 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 – missed the Reds’ last three games before the international break with a knock.
The 29-year-old is back in full training and could feature against Mikel Arteta’s Arsenal.
Klopp told Liverpool’s official website: “Bobby is back, all the others not.”
Firmino has not been in great form this season, and with Diogo Jota back from injury and banging in the goals for fun again, it will not be an easy decision for Klopp to bring in the Brazilian and leave out the Portugal international forward.
According to WhoScored, the 29-year-old – who bagged a hat-trick against Arsenal in December 2018 – has scored six goals and provided five assists in 27 Premier League matches for the Reds so far this season.
Klopp could decide to include Firmino in the starting lineup and give Jota a rest ahead of the Champions League game against Real Madrid next week.
Some Liverpool fans have taken to Twitter to give their reaction to the news that Firmino is available for the game against Arsenal.
