Roberto Firmino's goal-scoring record against Arsenal and why he'll be key in Saturday's match

Arsenal will lock horn against Liverpool in the highlight match of the weekend in the English Premier League on Saturday at the Anfield Stadium. 

The Reds ran out 5-1 winners the last time the two sides met in Liverpool and will be looking to continue with their recent form against their Saturday opponents. 

One man who relishes these meetings is Roberto Firmino. The Brazilian has become the tormentor-in-chief for the Gunners in recent season, scoring 8 times in the past three seasons.

2016's Double

He opened his account against the Gunners in their 3-3 draw at home in January 2016, where he grabbed a brace; first, a left shot into the back of the net after Petr Cech had saved Emre Can's ferocious shot, parring it into the Brazilian's path. 

The second was a beauty into the left corner of the post from outside the box, beating the outstretched Czech goalkeeper.

March 2017

Firmino once again scored in March at home, as the Reds swept aside the Gunners in a 3-1 win. The Brazilian got to the end of Sadio Mane's badly-hit shot and took his time before beating Petr Cech in goal. 

August 2017

The Brazilian was in the side that once again beat Arsenal 4-0 at home in August, as the new season kicked off, and scored one goal. 

December 2017

The two Premier League giants once again played out a 3-3 draw, with Firmino once again on the scoresheet with a single goal. 

December 2018

The Brazilian once again put Arsenal to the sword with a clinical performance in 2018, scoring a hattrick as the hosts won 5-1, with Salah and Mane adding the other two. 

 

 

The trio will once again be in action on Saturday, and Arsenal will need to be at their best to stop the deadly front three. 

They will, in particular, be keen on keeping an eye on the Brazilian.
