In doing so, the Brazil international took his overall career tally to 63 goals in the Premier League which saw him draw level with former Arsenal and Manchester United star, Alexis Sanchez, in fourth place among the competition’s leading South American goalscorers.

The duo trail some way behind run-away leader Sergio Aguero who has netted an incredible 180 goals for Manchester City, which makes the Argentina star the league’s top-scoring foreign player of all-time.

Aguero’s countryman and former City teammate Carlos Tevez features in second place after scoring 84 times across spells with West Ham United, Manchester United and the Citizens, while former Liverpool star Luis Suarez ranks third with 69 goals.

The Brazilian duo of Gabriel Jesus and Willian are the only other active players in the competition alongside Aguero and Firmino who feature in the top 10, and are flanked by Gustavo Poyet, Juan Pablo Angel and Phillipe Coutinho.
