Cape Town - Liverpool striker Roberto Firmino says he is having the time of his life at Anfield this season due to the side's results on the pitch and team cohesion.

The Reds are challenging Manchester United for second position in the Premier League and are still in contention in the UEFA Champions League, with a quarter-final tie against Manchester City looming.

"It's the best moment of my career," Firmino told Goal. "I'm happy because things are very positive in my life - on the personal side and also on the professional side.

"The good moment our team is in helps a lot, too. The team fits together very well. Klopp is a great tactician and a great coach."

Meanwhile, the Liverpool attack has also been devastating this campaign, especially with Mohamed Salah scoring 36 goals in 41 games across all competitions. 

Firmino has also enjoyed an excellent goal-scoring return this campaign with 23 in 42 games, and is relishing the team's overall success in the final third.

"We have very good chemistry here at Liverpool," he said when asked if Salah's goal-scoring form puts extra pressure on him.
"Many speak of the strength of our attack, which also has [Sadio] Mane, but we have a team full of great quality that is effective in attack.

"We have to think collectively. The more players score, the better. Liverpool are the ones who win in this situation."
