The Brazilian has only scored 6 goals for the Reds this season as he admits to his poor form. However, Firmino has vowed to do all he can to rediscover his lost spark.

Firmino told

ESPN Brasil

: “It’s been a difficult season for me. We have to be sincere, there’s no lack of hope for improvement. My desire is to evolve and grow every day. There’s no lack of motivation for me.

“I challenge myself a lot. I know that I’m not at my best moment compared to the last few years. I always want to be helping with goals and assists, but that hasn’t been happening unfortunately.

"I don’t give up. I’m always looking to improve to help my team to be better, together with the group. I have to evolve day after day.”

With a series of unfortunate injuries, the Brazilian admits that Liverpool have lost their way as they’re struggling for a top-four league finish as they’ve been eliminated from Champions League by Real Madrid this week.

“For our team as a whole, the season hasn’t been as good as last year, but we have to find a way to continue,” Firmino added.

“Our opponents today have a different look at our team. Of course, they always respected us, but today they retreat very defensively. Sometimes it’s very difficult for us to get in and score goals.

“We have to keep fighting. We have to fight for the qualification to the Champions League through the Premier League.”

The Reds will next face Leeds away on Monday.
