Much Maligned Firmino Missed In UnIntense Liverpool Loss

Let's face it, Roberto Firmino -- at least in front of goal -- has regressed as a player over the course of the last two seasons.

To complicate things even further, Thiago’s involvement with the first-team coincides with the Reds having their worst run of form under the German …
