The Liverpool FC shoot actually fairly happy and quite a lot of goals. But in the year 2019, it goes for the Team of Jürgen Klopp in the League. There is especially little intoxicating draw and intoxicating victories. On the 4:3 win against Crystal Palace two 1:1 one against Leicester, the other at West Ham. After the 3:0 against Bournemouth: 0:0 Manchester United. After the 5:0 against Watford: 0:0 with Everton. Liverpool not dancing quite so loosely by the Premier League, is now only Second. Despite the 4:2 on Sunday against Burnley.
The aforementioned victories came for the Reds at home. The draw, apart from that against Leicester, away. Also against Bayern, there is now an away game. For one thing, it would be the perfect stage: Xherdan Shaqiri . Champions League eighth-final against former club, what more could you want? Now, the Swiss, especially that one of them would like: a little more time to get than the last.
The lineup is a good fit for the competition
play Shaqiri was never in the current calendar year, and, most recently, it was rarely used. He was still, in December is suddenly a Hero at Anfield, because he met the 3:1 twice against Manchester United – it is the victory of José Mourinho was the cost of the Job. After the double-pack of the wings players said that they would call him in Liverpool now already a legend.
That Shaqiri doesn't play, has. for several reasons, and sometimes those who indicated prior to the start of the season on a difficult Situation for him Since this Formation, a 4-3-3, the coach Klopp is like and, since February actually, on the front lawn. A Formation that actually fits to Shaqiri. But also to Mohamed Salah. The Egyptians, though not quite as good as it was a year ago, has its place, actually on sure. In the same way as Sadio Mané and Roberto Firmino, the two other parts of the Liverpool attack machinery. Klopp waived only in exceptional cases, on someone from this Trio.
Suddenly, Lallana is back
"If we play the System we play the normal way, then there are only three positions in the midfield, someone has to stay outside," said coach Klopp recently. He was asked why he put so rare on the Guineans Naby Keïta. The same goes for Shaqiri. The Coach says: "technically, we need to adapt, if Shaqiri plays." And Klopp doesn't want to. In addition, the Swiss had to fight in the past few weeks with back problems. But now he is back fully fit.
But it is not just Liverpool's current System is Shaqiris Problem. In the victory against Burnley, the long hardly shone last a theme more: Adam Lallana. A year ago, the 30-Year-old when U had to play-23 from Liverpool, he had been struggling before with injuries and sought his Form. Lallanas low point at the time: After a Foul of the Tottenham Juniors lost to the Englishman the nerves and grabbed the opponent by the back of the throat. At the world Cup in Russia, he was not allowed to. Now he has fought in the hierarchy of Klopp back to Shaqiri over. Due to his extraordinary training services, the Trainer.
The crusher and Oxlade-Chamberlain
Already has Klopp. a large selection of midfield and Attacking forces With Daniel Sturridge and Divock Origi two strikers are almost always on the bench, which would have in other Teams better prospects. For the midfield there are in addition to Shaqiri and Lallana also Captain Henderson, Keita, Wijnaldum, Fabinho and Milner.
The competition is huge. And it's even more adversity for Shaqiri in the Person of Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain threatens. Also he's English, he also missed the world Cup, in contrast to Lallana but due to a knee injury, which put him almost a year out of action. On Friday, he came to his Comeback in the U-23. Oxlade-Chamberlain's preferred Position: right outer. (mro)
