At Anfield, Jurgen Klopp is used to operating with a handful of players.
According to Pep Lijnders, that is his choice, but owing to the constraints of the football calendar, things may change.
Liverpool’s team is continually enhancing, and Luis Diaz was recruited to Klopp’s ranks for about £37 million during the January transfer window.
Between now and the end of the season, the German coach will have at least five top-tier offensive players to choose from.
It persists to be seen how the Reds manager will utilize the quality at his arsenal, as he has already shown hesitancy to pitch too many attacking players following the departure of Philippe Coutinho to Barcelona.
Klopp had Sadio Mane, Roberto Firmino, Mohamed Salah, and Coutinho for six months, yet he only started all four players in seven games across all competitions. Liverpool won three and drew four of the games.
Since his arrival from Wolves, Diogo Jota has offered further insight into Klopp’s techniques, as the 54-year-old has opted to play a front three with one of his best attackers usually taking a bench seat.
At times, the acquisition of Luis Diaz may facilitate the newly constructed formation. 4-4-2 and 4-2-3-1 are two examples of formations that would permit Klopp to pitch one additional attacker than normal while relinquishing a central midfielder.
Luiz Diaz on the other hand, has a preference spot in Klopp’s favorite 4-3-3, which Mane now occupies, with Jota may be able to contend and rotate with Firmino through the center.
