Former Liverpool player John Aldridge says that Roberto Firmino’s current form is “a mystery”.
Firmino scored the only goal in Liverpool’s 1-0 win over Tottenham on Saturday as the Reds extended their Premier League unbeaten run.
“One mystery for me this season has been the form of Roberto Firmino and his goal added another layer to the confusion,” Aldridge told the Irish Independent.
“Firmino is still waiting for his first Premier League goal at Anfield and appears to have entirely different confidence levels in away matches.
“He has popped up with some of the most significant goals in Liverpool’s season with the winners at Southampton , Chelsea and Crystal Palace , as well as scoring the goals that secured the FIFA World Club Cup.
“Yet when I have watched him at Anfield this season, he has looked like a player horribly out of tune and struggling for confidence.”
During this season Firmino has scored 9 goals and provided 9 assists in his 31 appearances for the Reds.
