Liverpool striker Roberto Firmino heads into Saturday's Premier League clash with Watford needing one more goal to record the best scoring season of his career.

The 26-year-old Brazilian has netted 22 times in all competitions this term - a tally he matched at former club Hoffenheim in 2013-14.

Firmino, who has played more games (124) and scored more goals (45) than any other Liverpool player under Jürgen Klopp, has scored three times in five previous meetings with the Hornets.
