Roberto Firmino one game away from playing his 300th game for Liverpool

Roberto Firmino is just one game away from playing his 300th game for Liverpool, and he's set to reach the landmark on Tuesday night in the Champions League game against Atletico Madrid.

"Bobby was massive for our development as a team, absolutely," Jurgen Klopp said at a press conference ahead of the match.

"He is obviously a key player, the connector of all the different pieces on the pitch very often.

"He didn't have a proper pre-season, then getting injured – that's now not too helpful obviously. But the three goals from the weekend, for sure, will help him a lot.

"I think I was never shy of putting praise on Bobby Firmino and his importance, so maybe if you forgot that then go back and I recall something where I said a lot of nice things about Bobby because he deserved it.

"He's our false nine and on top of that a very, very important player."

Firmino joined Liverpool in 2015 and has scored 93 goals for the Reds since then.

At the moment, he's in fine form not just as a connector but as a poacher too: the 30-year-old has scored five goals in the last three games.
