Jurgen Klopp has a preference for working with versatile players at Liverpool.

3-5-2 was the Greek formation of choice to face Sweden and although they eventually lost the contest, Tsimikas' role could wind up inspiring Klopp on Merseyside.

Versatility is a quality that can allow Liverpool to adapt tactically during matches, and yet another one of Klopp's players has shown that quality by adopting a new role during the recent international break.

James Milner is a perfect example of a flexible player; whether he's required to fill in as a left-back, a right-back or a central midfielder, he contributes to a respectable standard more often than not.

Klopp has always favoured a back four at Liverpool, but a back three is gradually making more sense than previous times, largely due to the impressive central defenders at the club as well as the emergence of Tsimikas.

Since he took charge at Anfield in October 2015, the Reds have constructed a small squad for the German coach at his own request, with that only achievable if the players involved are capable of performing in a variety of areas.
