Having signed two explosive and quality midfielders this summer, Liverpool’s midfield position will surely be a handful for most of Premier clubs in the upcoming season.
The Reds confirmed the signing of €45m-rated Brazilian and Monaco midfielder Fabinho on the first of this month, while they officially received Naby Keita from RB Leipzig this month.
With Emre Can’s imminent departure and the latest report that Jurgen Klopp still stands a chance luring France international Nabil Fekir to the Anfield Stadium this summer, it will be interesting to see how the German manager would tweak his starting lineup so as to include new arrivals.
The Reds are still in search of Karius’ replacement and they have made contact with Roma netminder Alisson Becker but nothing has been confirmed yet.
As at the time of this report, Karius Loris gets our nod to start in goal for the Merseyside club.
The center of the pitch will witness huge changes in personnel and tactics, lets quickly look at the probable players to make Klopp’s starting lineup at the middle of the park.
Fabinho, who is known as a defensive midfielder, could push Jordan Henderson to the bench in the coming season.
The Brazilian will surely be given the chance by Klopp to prove his quality with the Reds while the England international will be a sacrificial lamb.
Keita is an all-round midfielder, he can comfortably feature anywhere at the middle of the pitch. However, he might be deployed as an attacking midfielder by Jurgen Klopp.
Oxlade-Chamberlain could be the player affected by the player’s arrival unless Klopp changed to a 5-man midfield so as to include both players in his starting lineup.
The Frenchman will complete the three-man midfield formation should he eventually make his much-anticipated switch to Anfield stadium ahead of next season.
With Liverpool’s impressive front three ahead of these midfielders, the Reds will surely score goals aplenty next footballing season.
