    Fabian Ruiz and Aouar would be very good for you imo.

    Ruiz :blush:

    Love that man.

    Because your CMs have to cover for your full-backs and end up being restricted offensively.

    Nah that's a myth. A great attacking CM is exactly what we need. Look at Lallana in the 16/17 season and Ox the season after. Both rather attacking players that did exceptionally well from CM in our system and got great returns.

    It’s not a myth. Klopp’s system has evolved since those seasons. We were playing Coutinho as a CM at one point, which we likely wouldn’t even entertain the idea of doing now. TAA and Robertson are our main creative outlets and the CMs cover for them constantly, throughout the game. I mean, if we signed a creative CM who is also an absolute workhorse, then I’m sure Klopp would be all for it, but a creative CM that is weak defensively, like most of them are, wouldn’t fit into our current set up. That’s why we signed Keita, as he excelled defensively as well as going forward, and of course, Oxlade-Chamberlain was playing as a wing back for Arsenal, putting in a defensive shift week in week out when he played. I can’t ever see Klopp signing a pure attacking CM unless we were changing to 4231 and using him as the number 10. Shaqiri is a prime example of someone who we could use as an attacking CM, but Klopp never uses him there, which is another clue that he isn’t looking for that kind of player to play there.

    Klopp would be able to make Havertz work in our setup. Fabinho is intelligent enough to be able to cover the space well and I'm sure Havertz could do it too if Klopp wanted him to. Shaqiri has always been terrible defensively, in regards to work rate and positioning, so I wouldn't use him as the main example. Ox and Gini both came as attacking midfielders and they have done well in our system

    I think the question more is will Havertz want to do it.

    He is one of the best talents in the world, he would need a team where he can be creative and show off his talents. On the other hand he would become a more complete player if he does learn more of the defensive side.

    Depends if he wants to win trophies or not ;)

    Tbh I wouldn't rule it out.

    I could see him at Madrid, Juve or Liverpool. Nowhere else really

    The part that makes me go full muppet the most is the fact he said he'd choose us on FIFA.

    Sounds like Salah will be good to go as well 😎

    Alisson and Salah will be ready for the Manchester United game at Old Trafford on October 20th. The duo will almost surely be straight in the starting lineups. No other injury concerns for Jurgen Klopp at this moment. #LFC

    (Paul Joyce - The Times)

    News on United:

    Pogba will supposedly miss the game. Deschamps spoke about his problems and said he will be out for 3 weeks. James had problems sice he suffered a concussion, will most likely play. No updates on Rashford and Martial.

    Good thing Salah will be back, or someone who actually turns up in big games might have played.

    Jokes on you....mid table teams are his specialty 💁‍♂️

    Yet he's never scored or assisted against United ;)

    Yeah you're right, your record of 1 PL win in the last 10 against us says just as much.

    Doesn’t help that your lot always just set up with 10 men behind the ball from minute 1. And that’s when your at home. The away game last year was one of the most dominant performances I’ve ever seen. 36 shots to 4 or something iirc

    Would have thought he would have learned his lesson after his comments recently about a last minute Liverpool penalty. Whoever says them, these things rarely go well :s

    And yet your finishing was so bad you had to rely on 2 late deflections to win :lol:

    We had Ole when we had 4 injuries in 30 mins and you still couldn't beat us.
