FPL Show: Expect more goals from Firmino

13 Sep 2019

Fantasy experts Sam and Lee Bonfield praise Liverpool forward whose stats rival more popular team-mates Salah and Mane

After a flying start to the 2019/20 Fantasy Premier League, experts say Roberto Firmino (£9.5m) is more of an attacking threat than ever and will add substantially to his 27 points.

The Brazilian has had 17 shots in this Premier League campaign, the most, and has scored twice, providing a further two assists.

But, ahead of Liverpool's Gameweek 5 home match against Newcastle United, he remains in only 12 per cent of FPL teams.

This compares with 42.9 per cent and 19 per cent respectively for team-mates Mohamed Salah (£12.5m) and Sadio Mane (£11.5m).

"Last season at the same stage he'd only had six shots inside the area," Sam Bonfield, of the @FPLFamily, said on the latest FPL Show.

"This season he's doubled that and he's had 12 so far, so we are starting to see a Firmino who's getting into better areas in the box and that can only mean that the goals will come."
