Coutinho is gone! And Liverpool fans are already wondering if they can truly cope without the Brazilian superstar.
Phillipe was superb at Liverpool before completing his dream move, and he will definitely be missed.
However, we need to move ahead. Remember, Countiho didn’t start the season with the rest of the party. Without him, Liverpool were able to earn 7 points from their first three English top-flight games.
Recently, they were able to win Burnley and Everton in his absence.
Good news is that Adam Lallana is fully fit and has been impressive in recent times. We expect him to be a regular starter in the midfield as he is much better than other options Klopp has.
We expect the former Southampton skipper to partner with the likes of Emre Can and Wijnaldum in the centre of the park.
In front of attack, the trio of Sadio Mane, Mohamed Salah and Roberto Firmino will continue scoring the goals.
At the backside, Andy Robertson is expected to become a regular player, and we expect him to take Alberto Moreno’s place in the starting XI.
Now that Countiho is out, here is what Klopp’s starting XI should look like:
GK – Mignolet
DL – Robertson
DC – Van Dijk
DC – Matip
DR – Trent
DM – Can
MC – Wijnaldum
MC – Lallana
WL – Mane
WR – Salah
FC – Firmino
