The Brazilian forward exemplifies the counter-pressing style of the Reds with his willingness to work up to the defence to help win the ball back before spreading and becoming a key figure in attack.
Speaking on Sky Sports' Monday Night Football, Klopp said of Firmino: "Roberto is a player who is always involved in offensive and defensive actions.
"He really likes doing things like this [winning the ball back] because it is a natural skill that he knows.
'It's a nice opportunity to win the ball and be close to the centre-backs, that's why he is doing it – he doesn't think too much, he is an instinctive player and is really, really strong in those situations.
"That's why he can play nearly all offensive positions."
