If Liverpool can learn anything from Saturday's 2-2 draw against Fulham, it's that the Reds will continue to come up against teams who are looking to frustrate the attack with two banks of four.

But the emerging signs are that while Thiago, Fabinho, and Henderson remain one of Klopp's best midfield selections in clashes against the top sides in Europe, a notion of high-risk, high-reward may be better against sides who are set up to counter-attack.

Of course, this may require some slight tweaks to Klopp's system.

Fulham pressed admirably at times, but the template was a broadly familiar one.

Of course, in games where Liverpool come up against the likes of Manchester City, some players become more vital than others, with the focus on being able to disrupt play defensively as much as sustaining attacks and creating chances.

With Fábio Carvalho able to shine from midfield areas with the added threat of goals from outside the box, the most extreme implementation of this system would be for Klopp to deploy Carvalho and Elliott as the midfield two together.
