Firmino has scored 23 times on the road for Liverpool – his latest goal coming during their 3-1 Premier League win at Burnley on Wednesday night
Firmino’s latest strike saw him score with his first touch of the game during the Reds’ 3-1 win at Burnley on Wednesday night as Jurgen Klopp’s men came from behind to keep the pressure on leaders Manchester City.
This was the Brazilian’s 40th league goal for Liverpool and despite his inconsistent 2018/19 campaign, Firmino is still adored by the Anfield faithful.
But a very interesting stat emerged after his goal at Turf Moor which shows Liverpool have never lost an away game when Firmino has scored – 20 wins and three draws.
In fact, Liverpool have only lost twice whenever Firmino has scored, so he appears to be a good luck charm for them.
The Reds travel to Bournemouth on Saturday lunchtime and a win for them will put them above City for a few hours at least as Pep Guardiola’s men travel to Chelsea later that evening – a game you can listen to live on talkSPORT, kick-off 5:30pm.
Another strike from ‘Bobby’, as Kopites call him, will set them well on their way judging by that amazing stat.
