Roberto Firmino is widely viewed as one of the most underrated Footballers in Europe, but to those who know him best he is clearly in the elite category.
Take for example the words of an emerging talent like Rhian Brewster.
The young striker is in the perfect position to comment about the workaholic Brazilian as he sees him from close quarters on a daily basis.
Liverpool Echo reported Brewster as saying:
“ Easily top three. As a striker, he is up there as one of the best. He is an amazing player and so underrated in the football industry.
“Only lately is he being regarded as one of the best at what he does.
“He's not a typical nine, he's his own nine, he made it himself.
“He comes in, goes high, he is all over the place to be honest.
“That's what I think helps the team a lot."
Brewster was also delighted for his teammates that were nominated list for the Ballon D’Or, and like many, feels it is time a defender got the nod.
"Why not have a centre-half winning the Ballon d'Or?
People will say Virgil has changed Liverpool with what he's done in helping us keep a lot of clean sheets, everybody has confidence with our back four and the keeper. I hope he does win it."
"Mane is one of the best wingers in the world. I'm not surprised Messi voted for him. 100% one of the best."
“Mo's goals last season won us a lot of games.
“The one that stands out for me was the one against Napoli to take us through in the Champions League. We count on him a lot to score us goals and winning goals.
As for his own status, the 19 year-old has understandably had to bide his time behind a cavalcade of attacking talents.
His first senior appearance for the Reds came in the third round of the Carabao Cup against MK Dons and he is likely to be involved again when Arsenal come to Anfield on Wednesday evening for the fourth round clash.
Brewster is taking everything in his stride learning along the way, but he also has some personal goals that he would love to meet.
"I can't complain. It has been a great start to the season from the boys, it is going really well.
“You have to set yourself targets.
"And my target this year is making my debut in the Prem and having a few appearances for Liverpool Football Club."
