Henderson hails Firmino.

Hendo: Firmino is a good player with a lot of skill.

Liverpool captain Jordan Henderson did not know much about Roberto Firmino before the former Hoffenheim midfielder sealed a move to Anfield last summer, and is expecting the Brazil ace who has been in form for the Reds to improve as he adapts to the Premier League.

"Being completely honest, I had seen very little of him before he arrived here," Henderson told the Liverpool magazine.

"Naturally, he needed some time to settle in but he's been brilliant for us, especially over the last few months.

"He's a very, very good player with a lot of skill who also works extremely hard for the team. He's provided goals and I think he's much more robust than people realise, he's quite wiry.

"Now it's about him continuing to grow and get even better."

Firmino is Liverpool's leading goalscorer with nine goals in all competitions.
