Liverpool are flying high in the Premier League, now six points clear of their closest rivals, and striker Roberto Firmino is looking happier than ever.
To celebrate a massive 4-0 win over Newcastle on Wednesday, the Brazilian was spotted out getting a new trim.
It was getting a bit long, so Firmino has gone back to his usual shaved sides. Perhaps he thinks it’ll make him a bit more streamlined, as the front man didn’t actually get on the score sheet at Anfield this week.
Firmino was looking a little glum before his haircut, but afterwards he was beaming as he showed off his slick new do.
He and the rest of the Liverpool team have plenty to be happy about as they’re now six points clear of Tottenham at the top of the Premier League table.
Manchester City have slumped to two shock defeats to Crystal Palace and Leicester City over the past week, which has let Liverpool extend their lead at the top and has left them down in third position.
Liverpool are playing their best football in years, and are now in pole position in the league as we head into 2019.
Despite Liverpool’s success, Roberto Firmino is actually having a slower start to the season than he did in 2017.
In the Premier League last season he scored 15 goals and provided seven assists in his 37 matches. Right now he’s not on track to match those scoring stats, with just four in his first 19 games.
However, Mohamed Salah and Sadio Mane are on their usual goalscoring form, and Xherdan Shaqiri has also stepped up to the plate, netting six times so far this season.
Plus, Liverpool are much improved defensively, conceding just seven goals up until now.
So, even though Firmino isn’t scoring as much as usual, with Liverpool doing as well as they are, it’s no wonder he’s all smiles.
