Name: Roberto Firmino
For the second successive month; Brazil international Roberto Firmino pockets Liverpool’s Player of the Month award as the summer signing continues to flourish in 2016.
The 24-year-old, who has 11 international caps for his country, is the Premier League club’s joint-highest goalscorer in the English top-flight this season with six strikes – level on par with striker Christian Benteke.
Firmino; who arrived at Anfield from Bundesliga outfit Hoffenheim last summer in a deal worth up to £29m, is finally showcasing exactly why Liverpool coughed up so much money for the attacking midfielder, with the Brazilian starring as the Reds’ most attacking and creative threat throughout last month,
Firstly the former Figueirense ace opened the scoring against Sunderland; despite the hosts eventually being pinned back to a last-gasp 2-2 draw against the Black Cats, before Firmino flourished in Liverpool’s 6-0 annihilation of rock-bottom Aston Villa on Valentine’s Day, proving an absolute menace for the home side’s defence all afternoon.
