It is hard to believe that Liverpool FC  only generated one point from their earlier season matchup against Brentford. The clash was an unexpected high-scoring affair as the two sides contributed three goals aside after 90 minutes of play. The Reds maintained the lead leading up to the 82nd minute until Brentford substitute Yoane Wissa scored the equalizing goal in the contest.

At the time, no one had any significant concern about the draw, considering it was only the sixth game of the season for Jürgen Klopp’s side. However, this time around, he and the club are more than aware of the story of their opponent.

However, the two potential points lost could potentially haunt LFC in the English Premier League race as the season crosses the midway point.

Liverpool currently sits in third place in the EPL, and every point matters from here on out.

Most recently, table leaders, Manchester City defeated second-place Chelsea 1-0. City now sits 14 points above Liverpool in league with this result. In addition, they are winners of their last five straight and are heating up at the right (wrong time for everyone else) once again. The Reds have held a 2-1-2 win/loss/draw record in their past five outings in the Premier League. On Sunday, another one-point outing, or worse, is something that the team cannot afford. Considering the team’s missed opportunities in their latest English competition, the team needs someone to step up in the absence of both Mo Salah and Sadio Mané.

It is time for Roberto Firmino to take charge of the Reds.

With the absence of his top-flight counterparts mentioned above, Liverpool’s Roberto Firmino now enters the picture being both healthy and available. After missing a few matches due to injury and COVID-19 in recent months, Firmino reminded the world against Shrewsbury Town in the FA Cup that he is always a threat. His Brazillian teammate, Fabinho, was also excited to see Bobby back. As the Reds have numerous players unavailable for various reasons, look for Firmino to re-establish himself. There is no better time for him to start than against Brentford.
