When Roberto Firmino calmly stroked home an early opener in Liverpool's 2-0 win at Southampton, the Brazilian hit the 20-goal mark for the season.

And when Firmino produced an outrageous, ingenious flick to set up Mohamed Salah to score the Reds' second shortly before half-time, he took his tally of assists for 2017-18 to 11.

As such, the No.9 has now been directly involved in 31 goals in just 36 appearances so far this term.
