Roberto Firmino has praised Liverpool as a stronger team now than the one which won the CL in the summer.
“I think this team is stronger than last year,” he said. “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.”
“It would show once again that we believe this is going to be our year in the Premier League. This year is our time,” insisted Firmino.
“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.”
“They are complicated matches we face,” admitted Firmino ahead of Liverpool’s clash versus Spurs.
“If we overcome them, then the way ahead will be even clearer for us. But what we learned last season, which I have already lived many times, is that in this league the last match of the campaign can still end up defining everything.
“My hope is that we can be Premier League champions a few days before that. But you have to be ready to go to the end.
“Personally, I prefer to be top and to lead from the front than having to chase your rival. So I am happy where we are right now.”
