Firmino has been in fine form for Liverpool in 2016.

The Brazil international scored one and assisted another as his Liverpool side raced into a two-goal lead but were forced to settle for a 2-2 draw at home to Sunderland.

His goal came just before the hour mark as he was found in acres of space to head James Milner’s left-sided cross back across goal.

He then closed down Billy Jones’ clearance before running into the area and squaring to Adam Lallana to put the Reds two goals ahead.

However, late goals from Adam Johnson and Jermain Defoe drew the Black Cats level, as they shared the points at Anfield.
