Roberto Firmino believes his second goal in the home defeat to Swansea was his best strike of last season.

Firmino scored 12 goals and provided 11 assists in 41 games in all competitions last campaign as Liverpool qualified for the Champions League.

The Brazilian was often named as the club’s nominal centre forward, flanked by Sadio Mane and Philippe Coutinho.

He has named his three favourite goals of last season, with his strike in the 3-2 defeat at Anfield against Swansea number one.

“If you asked me for the best three goals I scored, I’d say Palace away in third place, the one at Stoke next, and then that second goal against Swansea,” Firmino told LFC Magazine.

“We were 2-1 down when Gini won the ball on the left and I realised that he was going to cross it.

“I had to react very quickly and I dominated the ball with my chest. My only thought then was to shoot straightaway.”

He then discussed the club’s prospects in Europe next season.

“Last season it was sad that we had no European games but we worked hard and now we’re really looking forward to them next season,” he said.

“We’ll have more games to play but I would play twice a week if I could. It shows the team is moving in the right direction.”
