The video will auto-play soon 8 Cancel Sadio Mane has issued a stirring defence of Roberto Firmino and believes the Liverpool striker deserves more credit.

Firmino has attracted criticism for recent form, particularly at Anfield where Jurgen Klopp's side haven't scored from open play in almost 10 hours and have lost four successive league games for the first time since 1923.

"But it is part of football, (people) always seeing the goals scored.

And while Firmino has only six goals this season compared to 24 for Mohamed Salah, 11 for Mane and nine for Diogo Jota, his overall play still retains the admiration of his fellow forwards.

Speaking to ESPN Brasil, Mane added: "Brazil are just lucky to have Firmino.

"He deserves more credit than me and Mo, for sure," said Mane.

However, no Liverpool player has provided more assists this season than the Brazilian, who made his 200th Premier League outing for the club in Saturday's 2-0 derby defeat at home to Everton.
