Liverpool's trip to Spain to face Real Madrid in the Champions League this week did not play out as expected, with the Reds suffering a 3-1 defeat that will be difficult to overturn on Merseyside.

For Klopp's game plan to work effectively - and for the high line to not get exposed - the whole team has to be capable of executing what is required, particularly on the physical and pressing side of the game.

Jurgen Klopp admitted that his team weren't good enough after the clash, and based on the level of performance witnessed across a number of departments, the display could offer an insight into why Gini Wijnaldum's contract is set to expire at the end of the campaign.

His experience, mentality, availability and versatility has proved to be invaluable over the years, but the older Klopp's players become, the more in conflict they become with the basics associated with his philosophy and playing style.

Liverpool's high defensive line was criticised and while much of that scrutiny appeared deserved, Klopp stated after the match: "It's not about the last line, it's about what you do in front of that."

Moreover, James Milner is 35 years old and Jordan Henderson is aged 30.

Wijnaldum has helped establish that identity, but such a playing style naturally demands mobility, speed, endurance and hunger to succeed at the very top.
