Liverpool's Squad Review - Who Stays and Who Goes in Midfield

Saturday 23rd June 2018

While Liverpool's formidable front three receive almost all the plaudits, the foundation on which they create magic is provided by the midfield. The Reds' heavy metal football is in large part due to Jurgen Klopp's gegenpressing principles. 

Liverpool's midfielders are key to both generating attacks and recovering possession. The middle third represent the most vital area. In order to truly utilise the all-out high-press system, Kloop requires a solid midfield base. The German also relies on tenacious protectors and a creative outlet.
