Liverpool keeper Alisson: No-one doubts very supportive Firmino here

Liverpool goalkeeper Alisson insists Roberto Firmino has the squad's full support.

Firmino was dropped to the bench for Liverpool's Champions League clash against Atalanta on Tuesday, replaced by Diogo Jota, who banged in a scintillating hat-trick.

"I don't even need to talk about the importance of Firmino, for everything he has done for the club and everything he has been doing," Alisson told Esporte Interativo.

"He is a very supportive player, who works for the team.

"We need everyone on their toes to achieve our goals going forward."

On Jota, Alisson said of his new teammate: "He is a very hard-working, high quality and humble guy.

"He came to help us and has further proved that our team is not just one player.

"We have a very strong squad and group."
