A Truly Ridiculous Statistic About Roberto Firmino And Shkodran Mustafi Surfaces Online

A Truly Ridiculous Statistic About Roberto Firmino And Shkodran Mustafi Surfaces Online

Heads up Arsenal fans, a statistic about Shkodran Mustafi's season does not make for good reading.

And it involves Roberto Firmino.

Arsenal surrendered a one-goal lead, losing 2-1 to Newcastle United on Sunday. Arsene Wenger's charges are well off the pace, and are in danger of slipping to seventh place with Burnley breathing down their necks.

In comparison to Jurgen Klopp's lads.

Following the 3-0 victory against Bournemouth, Liverpool are just one point behind second place Manchester United, while a Champions League semi-final fixture beckons.

Mohamed Salah continued his goal-scoring heroics by netting his 30th (!!) league goal of the season with a sublime header.

'Bobby' also got on the score-sheet.

And the Brazilian is not just contributing goals. In Klopp's footballing philosophy, he's defending from the front.

His defensive work is brilliantly summed up in this statistic: Firmino has reportedly won 62 tackles.

Incidentally, that's more than defender Mustafi (61).

The 26-year-old striker is enjoying a brilliant campaign with Liverpool, and will be harbouring ambitions of raising 'The Big Ears', ahead of the World Cup.

Meanwhile, Firmino and co. are back in league action this weekend against WBA, before taking on AS Roma in the Champions League.

While Arsenal host West Ham United, then face United.
