Thierry Henry hails Firmino.

Firmino is showing signs that he can be that guy.

Roberto Firmino looks like he could become the main man for Liverpool, according to Arsenal great Thierry Henry.

Firmino, who has scored eight goals and registered four assists in the Premier League for the Reds, has gradually gotten better since his summer move from Hoffenheim. And, Henry is backing the Brazilian to emulate Luis Suarez at Anfield.

"I will give him the benefit of the doubt because he has just arrived and he needs to settle,” Henry told Sky Sports.

“Things changed during the season and it isn’t always easy. He is starting to show some signs that he can be that guy.

“Is he Luis Suarez? At the moment, he isn’t Suarez. But he might be [in the future].

“Is he the guy who is going to make Liverpool win a title? I don’t know.

“He is doing extremely well. If he can build a partnership with Philippe Coutinho, who knows?”
