Roberto Firmino is undoubtedly one of the world’s best forwards, thanks to his performances for Liverpool and Brazil.
The South American arrived at Anfield from Hoffenheim back in 2015 and has since made 196 appearances for the Reds since, scoring 67 goals and providing 49 assists along the way.
Firmino has forged a lethal partnership in attack with Mohamed Salah and Sadio Mane, with the trio scoring a total of 154 goals since the start of the 2017/18 campaign.
This season, the 27-year-old scored his first goal of 2019/20 at Southampton last weekend and will hope to net a few more on Saturday when Liverpool take on Arsenal.
Firmino has featured in all of the matches against the Gunners since his arrival at Anfield, and as of this point, he has netted eight goals.
He scored his first hat-trick for Liverpool the last time the two sides met back in December, as the Reds cruised to a 5-1 win.
Having taken a look back at Firmino’s eight goals against Arsenal, we’ve ranked them from worst to best.
