Roberto Firmino reveals Alisson Becker frustration – and why he isn’t satisfied

Liverpool had to dig deeper to snatch a win against a stubborn Crystal Palace side on Saturday, to keep a safe though slim gap against title holder Manchester City.

Brazilian Roberto Firmino walked into the spotlight again, as he did against Arsenal at Anfield.

The Brazilian has seen his scoring form improve this latter half of the season and he has strongly blamed fellow compatriot Alisson Becker for the boost in his gameplay.

Firmino who grabbed his first hat-trick as a professional player when the Reds trumped Arsenal 5-1, says he won’t relent in his efforts to continue to “crack on”, and happily, admitted he is thankful to God for his good run of form.

The Liverpool forward has toppled over the record held by former Liverpool player Philippe Coutinho as the leading Brazilian player in Premier League history.

Coutinho is on an healthy run to surpass the 45 goals he’s heaped up since joining the club when he plays against Leicester City on Wednesday.

Speaking to Liverpool’s official matchday magazine, the 27-year-old said he is “never satisfied” despite finally stamping his mark as one of the most-feared attackers in the Premier League and Europe.

“I always want more, to grow and develop further every day with objectives and targets to achieve.”
