[Firmino admits there is a determination within Klopp’s ranks to deliver more major silverware] Last year we hit the post in the Premier League, we were upset of course that we didn’t win. We have a chance this season, it’s in our hands. We need to keep it up, working hard, following this path with our heads in the right place and a winning mentality. We’ll take things game by game and keep this strong champions mentality up until the end and see where it takes us. Of course we’re more confident this season. We’ve been winning all our games, this increases our confidence game by game. We have to continue with this momentum

[Firmino said of his boss] I knew Klopp from playing against Dortmund in Germany. I was happy, of course, when I found out he was coming here, as he was German and I’d played there as well and I have a bit of the German mentality. He changed the club a lot generally, in every way, tactically, mentally. Today we are what we are, not just because of him but he’s responsible for a large portion of our transformation, so I’m really happy to be playing under him, he’s a great coach
