Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp is faced with a great many selection dilemmas ahead of Saturday night's Champions League final against Real Madrid.

Does he risk Fabinho and Thiago in midfield even though they are lacking match sharpness?

Recent performances have also shown why Matip should return to the starting line-up for Saturday's final even though he has sat out five of Liverpool's last seven Champions League games.

In fact, Konate started Liverpool's last four Champions League games, playing 90 minutes as they progressed past Benfica and Villarreal to reach yet another continental final, this time to be staged at the Stade de France.

These are the kind of decisions which could tip the balance in the encounter with the 13-time European champions, which looks finely-poised on paper.

"It's a mistake from Ibrahima Konate, who is in for Virgil van Dijk," former Liverpool defender Stephen Warnock told BBC Sport at the time.

Assuming Virgil van Dijk is able to start against Los Blancos having shaken off a knock, that leaves one of Joel Matip or Ibrahima Konate to partner the Dutchman.
