The Scout is selecting four overlooked players who could be set for a breakout Gameweek 7 in Fantasy Premier League.
Firmino’s prospects were boosted by a change of formation against Sheffield United last weekend.
Playing behind Mohamed Salah (£12.4m) in a 4-2-3-1 system, he scored his first goal of the season in the 2-1 win.
The underlying statistics also highlight an improvement in Firmino’s threat over the last two Gameweeks.
His five shots in the box were level with Sadio Mane (£12.0m) and bettered only by the seven of Salah for Liverpool.
After featuring as a late substitute in the Reds’ UEFA Champions League victory over Midtjylland on Tuesday, Firmino will be fully refreshed to start against a West Ham side who have struggled at Anfield in recent seasons.
Liverpool have scored 11 goals in their last three home meetings with West Ham.
Although that points to Salah and Mane as big captaincy options, an improving Firmino can also enjoy more success against the Hammers.
