Roberto Firmino says Liverpool’s attacking players have thrived since Philippe Coutinho’s exit and they are ready to make Porto suffer in their Champions League tie.
Firmino has scored 20 goals in 36 appearances for the Reds this season, including four in his last six games, with Mohamed Salah also in free-scoring form since Coutinho’s January move to Barcelona.
“Coutinho is a great player and of course when he left that put a greater responsibility on everyone else to perform without him,” said Firmino ahead of Wednesday’s Champions League tie with Porto.
“It is our job to deal with greater responsibility and I think we have done that so far. I’m going to do what I can to help [Salah] score goals and to help all the team. I also want to help myself to make a good season. I don’t know if Porto are going to be afraid but we are going to make their life difficult and make them suffer.”
