Roberto Firmino Names The 12 Best Players In The Premier League And He's Confused Everyone
Liverpool forward Roberto Firmino is one of the most in-form players in the Premier League right now.
But people have questioned his judgement when it comes to rating some of his fellow professionals.
Firmino has named 12 players from the top six who he believes are the best in the league, but the inclusion of Tottenham midfielder Moussa Sissoko has surprised many.

"We have great players in English football, it's hard to select one as the outright best," Firmino said in an interview with GOAL.
"That's why it's the most popular league with many quality teams. We can talk about the goalscorers - Salah and Harry Kane."

He continued to state the players he rates at Liverpool, and went on to name Dejan Lovren of all people.
"Not to mention Mane, Emre Can, Dejan Lovren and the many other good players we have here at Liverpool. It is a league with great stars. Virtually everyone I mentioned will be at the World Cup. The level is very high."
