Firmino believes Liverpool have the attributes to end their 30-year wait for title.
Roberto Firmino is convinced Liverpool are a better team now than when they were last season when they missed out on the Premier League title.
The Brazil international is convinced this is the Reds’ time and finishing as runners-up last term will serve as a catalyst to end their 30-year wait for the league title.
“I think this team is stronger than last year,” the forward said as Mirror Sport quoted. “When I look around, I see the strongest team.
“Winning the Champions League last season helped us because it showed our level – and this year I would say we have improved even more. I have very positive feelings about the season.”
The 28-year-old continued: “It would show once again that we believe this is going to be our year in the Premier League. This year is our time.
“But we have to be careful. In this moment we are the leaders and we are playing well. But we haven’t won anything yet. So, we are optimistic, yes - but you have to continue working game by game.
“Thinking ahead is just not worth it. I learned long ago that in England, anything can happen. Just dropping two or three points can leave you missing out on the title.”
Jurgen Klopp’s side played out a 1-1 draw at Old Trafford last weekend and they host Tottenham at Anfield today before taking on Manchester City on November 10.
