How many times have we seen Joël Matip shift through the gears, and go on one of those long, striding runs deep into enemy territory?

The Cameroonian likes the ball at his feet, it’s fair to say.

The point should also be made that using Matip in midfield would require Klopp to readjust his system.

With Liverpool struggling to break down Arsenal’s stubborn defensive shape, Matip took it upon himself to foray deep into Arsenal’s no-go zone in an attempt to finally break the deadlock.

With Salah, Mané, Thiago and Keïta all still set to be missing for a few more games, it might just be required.

Therefore, Klopp could switch to implementing a double pivot, using a 4-2-3-1 formation.

The shift in system would also allow Klopp to get the best out of the attackers he has available with Mohamed Salah and Sadio Mané away at AFCON, with it being felt that the 4-3-3 doesn’t get the best out of the likes of Takumi Minamino and Diogo Jota (at least when the Portuguese is forced out to the right).
