Klopp’s potential scary 4-2-3-1 lineup next season for Liverpool

Liverpool have seen a shake up in team following the inclusion of two of the most highly rated midfielders in Fabinho and Naby Keita this summer. The signing of Keita and Fabinho would likely see Klopp change tactics to 4-2-3-1 formation, which he used during his time with Borussia Dortmund.

Virgil Van Dijk, signed from Southampton in January, was a wise move from the club and he should be tasked with the responsibility of bringing balance to the defence alongside Dejan Lovren while Trent-Alexander Arnold and Andrew Robertson have also done well and will likely retain their place in the starting eleven next season.

The two new signings – Fabinho and Keita – will form a formidable partnership in the midfield as Fabinho is an exciting addition capable of sitting in as a hub in the midfield.

In attack, the trio of Mohamed Salah, Roberto Firmino, Sadio Mane should all retain their spot, having terrorized most defences last season and they be keen on replicating this brilliant form next season. And since the club are yet to make any signing – attacking midfield – it’s likely that Adam Lallana will be the one to lead the Reds’ creative department although the focus will likely be on Naby Keita to provide the same.

The 23-year-old is the perfect catalyst for Klopp, who would be more impressive in the German tactician’s gegenpressing style of play in the middle third, as seen in llkay Gundogan performances with Borussia Dortmund. Klopp, as we all know, should manage to bring out the best of Naby Keita this season, the Reds may even pose a stronger threat across Europe next season, and who knows, the trophy could land at the Merseyside.
