Pursuit of league title has been based on a formidable defence but Jürgen Klopp’s forward line is hitting collective stride too
It was fitting the Roberto Firmino no-look finish returned to Anfield on the day Liverpool threatened to disappear from view in the title race. Arsenal were annihilated with a swagger and a smile and the Brazilian forward was their tormentor once again. He could not have timed a return to centre stage any better.
When Jürgen Klopp claimed Liverpool had room for improvement before Arsenal’s latest ravaging at Anfield it was his forward line, and arguably Firmino in particular, he had in mind. Liverpool’s pursuit of that elusive 19th league championship has been based so far on a formidable defence – one that has conceded only eight league goals all season – but now the forward line that carried them to last season’s Champions League final is hitting its collective stride too.
