MUST READ: 3 Ways That Jurgen Klopp Can Reinvent Liverpool

After Liverpool’s embarrassing defeat to Napoli two weeks ago, Jurgen Klopp admitted his side needed to “reinvent themselves”. In the post-match press conference, he said, “We definitely have to kind of reinvent ourselves because just basic things were not there.”


With more players returning from injury soon, Liverpool may be able to rejuvenate their form. However, players have looked sluggish, getting outrun in every game but one this season. The players might need a new system and style of play to dominate the footballing world once again. Here are three suggestions on how Klopp could reinvent this side.



This formation is a favourite of Klopp, using it as his main formation during his time at Borussia Dortmund. Klopp deployed Roberto Firmino as a ‘false 9’ when he joined and it has been a pivotal factor in our success.


With Firmino ageing and forward talents like Diogo Jota and Darwin Núñez in the squad, Klopp may need to start phasing out the ‘false 9’ role in favour of a traditional striker.


Potential Lineup

Goalkeeper: Alisson


Defenders: Trent Alexander-Arnold, Joel Matip, Virgil van Dijk, Andrew Robertson


Defensive Midfielders: Thiago, Fabinho


Attacking Midfielders: Mohamed Salah, Fabio Carvalho, Luis Diaz


Striker: Darwin Núñez


front three.


Changing The Usual XI

By bringing up the earlier point of our players looking sluggish, we might need to drop players instead of change formation. Our players might be looking complacent as they don’t have much competition to lose their spot in the starting XI.


Potential Lineup

Goalkeeper: Alisson


Defenders: Joe Gomez, Joel Matip, Virgil van Dijk, Kostas Tsimikas


Midfielders: Jordan Henderson, Fabinho, Thiago


Front Three: Mohamed Salah, Darwin Núñez, Luis Diaz


Gomez has looked defensively solid in some games and might deserve a chance at right-back. Trent has looked poor defensively this season and might need a break to reflect on his performances. Dropping him might just be the kick that he needs.


His full back partner, Robertson, has also been underperforming. Tsimikas looked sharp during his appearances and might get his chance to be a starter in this squad.
