Thierry Henry has lauded Liverpool’s Roberto Firmino, admitting he is in ‘awe’ of the Brazilian.

Firmino has become an integral player for the Reds since joining the club in 2015 and has contributed seven goals in 24 appearances this season.

The 25-year-old put in a lively performance at Old Trafford on Sunday as Jurgen Klopp’s side held United to a 1-1 draw.

Reflecting on Firmino’s performance, Henry told Sky Sports on Monday Night Football: ‘He is Jurgen Klopp’s favourite player.

‘Not because he has the quality of a [Zlatan] Ibrahimovic but what he does in midfield is outstanding.

‘Yesterday, I was in awe of what he was doing – at times it was too much. The way he bends his run forces United to play it back.’
