It was never going to take much for questions to be asked of Liverpool's attacking capabilities while they wait for Mohamed Salah and Sadio Mane to return from Africa Cup of Nations duty.

However, when Takumi Minamino squandered a golden late opportunity to give the Reds victory in the first leg of their Carabao Cup semi-final against Arsenal, the concerns over the absent duo became more acute.

It’s not that easy to get in the first team – on his maybe natural position,” Klopp said in November.

However, there's another option for the manager, and we saw a glimpse of his alternative in the moments before and after Minamino's late miss.

Klopp knows he won't have the luxury of making the most of the natural chemistry of Salah and Mane until February at the earliest, and the German will surely have a few ideas in his pocket.

Jurgen Klopp spoke after the game about his team's frustrations against their 10-man opponents, with the London side deploying a low block which kept Liverpool's chances to a minimum despite the game being 11 v 10 for more than an hour.

“I’m not sure if right-back really is [his] natural position, but then [if it is] there’s Trent Alexander-Arnold."
