Liverpool are preparing to host Newcastle United at Anfield today, September 14 at 12:30 BST.
Ahead of the game, the Reds star Roberto Firmino has sent a message to Newcastle United player and his national team teammate Joelinton.
“We have already talked about this (game), because we are linked to the same representatives and know each other in this way,” Firmino told Globo Esporte, via Sport Witness .
“I hope he also succeeds in England and continues to evolve in his career.
“It’s always good to be able to face Brazilian players here in Europe. It’s nice to see so many being successful. Joelinton is one of them. Like me, he left Brazil early and went to Hoffenheim. And now he’s here playing the Premier League.
“For his style of play, he has everything to make it work. But don’t come and have fun on Saturday.”
Currently Liverpool are first in the league table with maximum points and will hope to extend their perfect run in the Premier League with a win against Newcastle.
Meanwhile, Newcastle United are 14th with 4 points.
