Liverpool manager, Jurgen Klopp have come out to defend Roberto Firmino's record for Liverpool. 

According to the German boss, his striker record at the club should speak for itself. 

The former Borussia Dortmund boss has come to the defense of his striker who has been hit criticism in recent weeks due to his scoring ratio. 

Diogo Jota who joined from Wolverhampton in the summer has been scoring in last two games against West Ham in the league and he scored hat-trick against Atalanta in the mid week Champions League. 

Liverpool will face Manchester City this weekend. Jurgen Klopp has been going head to head with Pep Guardiola for the past two seasons. 

Last season saw Klopp have the better of Guardiola as Reds matched on the title with a 18 points gap. 

There are some section of fans who prefer Jota to lead Liverpool's attack against Manchester City this Sunday. 

But Klopp has responded to the Brazilian critiques. 

"I don't have to say one word about Bobby Firmino and how important he was for us. So I don't waste time with that," Klopp said.

"[People who are] not with us, I don't care if they know about him. He was in so many games the difference maker, without scoring maybe, but with scoring as well in other games. I would feel really embarrassed if I had to mention now the qualities of Bobby Firmino."

Although, Roberto Firmino finished behind Mohamed Salah and Saido  Mane in Liverpool's top scorer after last season, he's goals contribution to the trio is something that Klopp has continued to stress about. 


"I can't help these people, sorry," Klopp added. "If they don't see it, I can't help them."

Klopp further said that the  23-year-old Jota brings something fresh to Liverpool's play, and he would make them a better side whenever he comes on to play. 

"He's the player we thought he would be," Klopp said. "We thought we can help him to reach the next level, like he can help us to reach the next level because of his qualities.

"He's played in one of the hardest-working teams you can face, with Wolves. That all helps us and it helps him obviously. So I'm really happy about the impact he had so far."
