Roberto Firmino says he does not feel under any pressure to keep pace with Liverpool team-mate Mohamed Salah's goal-scoring exploits.
Salah has enjoyed an amazing first season at Anfield, four goals against Watford on Saturday giving him 36 in all competitions so far this season.
The Egypt international is ahead of Barcelona's Lionel Messi in the race for the European Golden Shoe.
Firmino, who has scored 23 goals this season, told Goal: "No way! We have very good chemistry here at Liverpool.
"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."
The goals have kept on coming for Liverpool (73 in the Premier League - second behind Manchester City) despite the January transfer of Philippe Coutinho to Barcelona.
Firmino added: "We changed the way we played after his exit. Which team in the world would not like to have a player of the quality of Coutinho?
"But he continued his life at Barcelona and Liverpool remained strong, as we always were.
"It's the best moment of my career. I'm happy because things are very positive in my life, on the personal side and also on the professional side."
"I always felt calm about it because I knew I had not said what they were accusing me of," the 26-year-old said.
"I have suffered racial prejudice and I know how painful it is. People need to take this issue more seriously and engage in this fight against racism."
