Firmino stats vs other Brazil forwards

Liverpool star Roberto Firmino seems to have been very unlucky not to be in the Brazil squad for the upcoming World Cup in Qatar.

Statistics show that the Reds ace has outclassed several other members of Brazil’s Premier League attack so far this season, so it’s far from clear what else he could have done to make it to Tite’s side.

See below how Firmino has six goals and three assists for Liverpool so far this season, meaning he has scored more times than either Gabriel Jesus, Gabriel Martinelli, Antony or Richarlison, while only Jesus the man from Arsenal, he has the most assists so far…

Richarlison made the big move to Tottenham in the summer but has no league goals to his name, while Antony hasn’t exactly set the world on fire despite his costly move to Man Utd with no assists to his name.

Liverpool fans will probably be grateful that Firmino has this time to rest and be ready for the rest of the season after the World Cup, but the player himself must be taken aback by this call from the Brazil manager.
