Liverpool's attacking brand of football has them sitting pretty in the Premier League and much of the credit must go to the Brazilian duo of Roberto Formino and Philippe Coutinho.

The latter has been simply immense, the former a revelation since he arrived on Merseyside.

Both Brazilians have notched up five goals this season and have also weighed in handsomely in terms of assists as Liverpool occupy top spot alongside Manchester City and Arsenal.

Coutinho and Firmino have formed a telepathic understanding and have terrorised defences with hard running and sublime skill.

Firmino has heaped praise on "magician" Coutinho but insists that Klopp's men won't be remembered unless they can finish the season with silverware.

“We think the same way,” Firmino told #LFCWORLD.

“We know what we’re going to do before possessing the ball. We always understand each other in the games and with our skill everything turned out well.

“Philippe is a magician, who makes magic in each shot, who is always helping with scoring goals and his incredible moves. He is always doing his best on the field."

“If we do not continue on this track until the end of the season, no-one will remember us and we will not achieve anything,” Firmino added.

“We have to continue on this track until the end.”
