Roberto Firmino is now getting more recognition at Liverpool following the departure of Philippe Coutinho, believes Jurgen Klopp.

The Brazilian forward is enjoying a fine season having taken his tally to 20 goals in all competitions for the Reds.

It has coincided with the absence of Coutinho, who missed chunks of the first half of the season through injury and was then sold to Barcelona in January.
