We just saw the key tactic that worked not only today, but should be used by Mr. Klopp next season with teams that play back and invite the pressure - playing Coutinho in the number 8 slot. It's bewildering he hasn't used it before, but there it is. Coutinho's creativity, distribution and defense splitting passes set the entire tone for LFC's game. If this XI had played more of the season (with Firmino replacing Origi), I bet you we wouldn't be sweating over Top 4 now, but rather Top 2.

for next year, I hope Klopp keeps this shape with Coutinho at the #8 position, solves the LB and RB puzzles, brings in a speedster for LW and keeps a healthy and fit Sturridge.

It will be firmino in the centre instead of sturridge with mane on the right and what you mentioned abkut the formation has already been worked on why do people think we are after Brandt and similar players for that area. Its not directly as a replacement for Couts but allows him to drop deeper.

To be fair to Rogers I can remember couts playing that role up at Newcastle and absolutely dictating the game.

14 May 2017 16:53:24
Who misses out next year then? Can, Henderson or Wiji?

Rodgers found out by accident because Suarez and Sturridge were on fire up front

We'll done today lads. 4 goals will do the goal difference no harm at all.

Hendo starts at the base no matter what, lallana gini can can rotate.

14 May 2017 17:22:24
On current displays can is better than hendo.

Wasn't Rodgers use of the 4-4-2 diamond something to do with Marcelo Bielsa?

14 May 2017 20:05:31
But West Ham didn't invite pressure - they did exactly the opposite. They were wide open today.

14 May 2017 20:38:05
Spot on, Super. BR didn't know a thing about it until Bielsa mentioned the high press 4-4-2 diamond system to him during a coaching seminar. Either way, this is the sytem we should play vs the bus parkers cos Couts can see runners ahead of him and with two strikers in constant movement, the defenders will be well occupied and the spaces can open. On to Boro and with a win, CL is ours and we will condemn Arsenal to Thursday night football.
