It'll be interesting to see what Klopp means about needing to be "creative" with the injury to Chamberlain leaving our midfield down to 3 recognised, proven CMs.

Wonder will we see TAA moved there for one or both of the last two home games if rotation is required and Gomez/ Clyne playing at RB.

I know Woodburn can play as a CM but maybe TAA might just be the one to step in, it'll be an interesting next fortnight.

The squad is very thin as we know, makes it all the more incredible that we are on the verge of a Champions League final appearance with one more professionally approached performance and right up there in the top 3 in the league - well done to the boys no matter what happens!

I think Mane could do a good job at CM and we could play Woodburn at LW.

Mane at CM?
I'm not saying you're wrong, I just can't see it myself - who knows?!
We'll see - hopefully Can or Lallana might make a miraculous recovery but unlikely sadly.

Surprised the "we shouldn't have sold Coutinho" brigade haven't been out in force, but early yet :)

Hahaha Kev I was thinking the same regarding the Coutinho comments, no doubt we'll see them before the end of the day mate.

Mane I personally don't see playing as a CM either but football is a crazy old game, we'll have to wait and see what happens. I want to see TAA in the midfield, I've been looking forward to seeing it for a while now but thought I'd have to wait until next season, hopefully we can see him there soon. I think he'll just thrive, the lads the future imo, Gerrard kind of figure.

I'd also love to see more of Woodburn, it certainly will be interesting to see the next few lineups.

What about moving Moreno as left wing?

I would love to see Woodburn LCM, Wijnaldum RCM/ Holding CM and TAA RCM/ Holding CM. TAA can smash his long passes from holding position and he has the deffencive ability and pace aswell. Those 3 at the Stoke game will do I belive. Hendo deffinetly needs a rest and Milner will aplriciate one too.

There's been a few games where Mane has been dropping further back looking to play the killer pass. I think he could do it. His work rate is also incredible.

Firmino would surely be the obvious option? He has a good enough all round game and work rate and would get up to support.

I actually doubt you'll see any comments from "the brigade" simply because there's the suspicion that we are actually playing better since he left. 😁

With Ox out for the season, we need 2 midfielders to be added to the remaining 3 (Hendo, Wijnaldum, Milner) to create a rotation for all the remaining games. I don't see how you can do without using Woodburn for some of the games. And I don't think it's such a bad idea to throw in Curtis Jones into the mix and see how it goes.

Mane already plays in CM as he has started dropping deep inot those areas during games so nothing foreign there. We may see TAA in midfield with Clyne at RB or Woodburn in CM as he played there a lot in preseason.

It's unpopular but I agree that mane could play in midfield but don't think he will. Matip can play dcm but I doubt that too. We have potentially 5 games left. I think our three can handle those, well they will have to eh.

List of players I think could come in at midfield towards the end of games to rest milly and Hendo.
