Another week, another set of rough results for Jurgen Klopp and his Liverpool FC side. During his weekly news conference on Friday, in between a 5-2 midweek loss to Real Madrid on the continent and a weekend goalless draw with Crystal Palace on the domestic front, Klopp said that his team “needs change.”
He’s right, and major change could be coming, but unfortunately, his post is the one that could see a change. That would be grossly unpopular with the fan base, much of which want Fenway Sports Group out, not the manager.

That said, the Midlands club throttled Liverpool in the reverse fixture earlier this month. Let’s take a look at the potential starting lineup that Klopp might have in store to deliver a result here.
