Jurgen Klopp led the Liverpool players through a training session in front of the cameras on Monday night, as the Reds prepare to face Paris Saint-Germain.
The Champions League is back and the Reds will hope to carry their domestic form into Europe, as they host the French champions at Anfield on Tuesday.
Klopp’s side have a 100 per cent record for the new season—but so too do PSG, now under the guidance of Thomas Tuchel, who succeeded Klopp at Borussia Dortmund.
Klopp hasn’t heavily rotated his side yet this year, preferring instead to trust to those who played the bulk of pre-season and who have impressed at the start of the campaign.
Chief among those has been centre-back duo Virgil van Dijk and Joe Gomez, who have forged a formidable partnership this term.
Behind them, Alisson Becker has started in fine form too, notching three clean sheets from five matches and conceding just once in the other two games.
Further forward, for once, there are a couple of question marks.
Sadio Mane started the season in tremendous form—but was slightly off the boil, at least in terms of his end product, against Tottenham.
Mo Salah, meanwhile, will hope to rediscover his scoring touch after also looking short of his usual deadly level in a few matches this term.
Centre-forward and goalscorer Roberto Firmino was absent from training after an eye injury, however, and must be considered unlikely to play on Tuesday.
In his place, Klopp has options: A rare start for Daniel Sturridge is one possibility, but it could also be that Xherdan Shaqiri is given the nod.
The Swiss international has played both centrally and from the sides for the Reds, and Salah could move to play as striker to accommodate him.
Elsewhere, the Reds will hope for more goals from midfield, not just on Tuesday but across the entire competition, to aid their chances of progression.
Gini Wijnaldum netted at the weekend, having also vitally scored against Roma in last season’s Champions League semi-final. Another against PSG wouldn’t go amiss!
There’s also a question mark over whether Wijnaldum, Jordan Henderson or Fabinho start in the deepest midfeild role, with the Brazilian still awaiting his senior competitive debut for the Reds.
Fabinho, along with a few other squad players, will be vital to Klopp’s plans going forward across the next month or two, with a lot of matches yet ahead.
