Gary Neville says he loves the “unbelievable” Roberto Firmino after Manchester United were held to a 1-1 draw against Liverpool on Sunday.

Adam Lallana’s late goal meant the points were shared at Old Trafford in a 1-1 draw following Marcus Rashford’s controversial opener had given United the lead.

Neville was involved in a heated discussion in the Sky Sports studio with fellow pundit Graeme Souness over United’s lack of firepower.

Arguing that it isn’t always essential for a striker to score loads of goals to help their team, Neville used Liverpool‘s Firmino as the perfect example.

“They [United] will play the way they want to play and sign a striker to suit that style,” Neville said on Sky Sports.

“Liverpool play with three mobile strikers. Firmino doesn’t score 25 goals every year.

“He does an unbelievable job, I love him to bits, but he doesn’t score 25 goals.

“We had strikers at Manchester United who didn’t score 25, 30 goals but they did brilliant jobs.

“You can still win without a striker that scores 25, 30 goals.”
