The Brazil international initially struggled to adapt to life at Anfield after completing a big-money move from Hoffenheim during the off-season.

However, Firmino has started to show glimpses of his quality since the arrival of Jurgen Klopp, particularly in the 4-1 humbling of Manchester City at the weekend.

And Lovren paid tribute to his team-mate and says he is in awe of the 24-year-old's talent.

"Roberto is growing," the Croatia international told the Liverpool Echo.

"We need to give him time as he's settling into a new country, but he has great talent. We see it every day in training and now we're seeing it in the matches.

"He caused City a lot of problems. He's an unbelievable player. He has so much skill.

"Roberto scored one and could even have got a hat-trick. He creates and he scores. He has so much potential and I know he's going to get better and better for us."
