Arsene Wenger has defended Liverpool forward Roberto Firmino and echoed the comments of Jurgen Klopp.
The Brazilian has been part of a Reds front three that has looked far from its potent best in recent weeks.
Mohamed Salah found the net against Leicester, but the defending champions were still beaten 3-1.
Firmino has only scored six times this season but Wenger has compared him to former Red Luis Suarez with his game extending beyond goals.
“I think you have types of strikers like Suarez at Liverpool and now Firmino,” he said on BeIN Sports.
“You have the kind of striker who makes the wide players good and the kind of strikers who kill the players around them.
“Suarez and Firmino are players who make people around them good.
“You see many strikers who, in Firmino’s position, would have tried to force the shot or to dribble.
“He’s the kind of striker you do not find a lot, they work hard for the team and they make the players around them better.”
Firmino has come in for criticism this term for his lack of productivity in front of goal.
Klopp faced calls to drop his centre forward for Diogo Jota but resisted and underlined the 29-year-old’s qualities.
“Scoring was always important for Bobby but Bobby is the complete footballer,” said the German back in November.
“A football team is like an orchestra, to play we need to have people for different instruments. Some of them are louder, some of them are not that loud, but they are all important for the rhythm.
“Bobby is incredibly important, he plays like 12 instruments in our orchestra, he is incredibly important for our rhythm.
“Thank God, we can play without him as well but it’s nice to have him on the pitch.
“And if you look at the numbers, obviously I like it a lot – having him on the pitch – because he played pretty often!”
