Firmino was on the scoresheet in the Reds’ 1-1 draw with Aston Villa last weekend, netting his 10th goal of the season to claim seven points.

Despite being limited to just 12 starts and a further 12 outings off the bench, the 31-year-old has been a major influence on his side’s attack.

When selected, Firmino has been involved in a team-leading 54 per cent of Liverpool’s goals in 2022/23, compared to the 44 per cent of Mohamed Salah (£13.1m).

The South American has also scored at a quicker rate than Salah, averaging a goal every 120 minutes compared to the latter’s 168 minutes.

Southampton, meanwhile, have already been relegated due to a series of poor defensive displays.

They have conceded at least three goals in three of their last four matches.

Firmino has the form to maintain his recent momentum and finish his Liverpool career in style at St Mary’s Stadium.
