 Klopp hints at changes in Liverpool's attack

Jurgen Klopp, coach of the Liverpool team, revealed that he is working to reconcile Mohamed Salah and Darwin Nunez in the offensive line, as the Red's attack continues to develop.

Klopp hints at changes in Liverpool's attack

Nunez scored his fifth goal since his summer arrival from Benfica - and a first for the Reds at Anfield - as Klopp's side secured a narrow 1-0 Premier League win over West Ham United on Wednesday.

Three days earlier, the Uruguayan was put on the bench in the win over Manchester City, when Salah instead played up front and scored the only goal.

Liverpool has recently broken away from their usual 4-3-3 style with a formation that has seen the central striker's heart backed by another player in a slightly deeper role.

Klopp hinted at the possibility that changes would be made in Liverpool's attacking positions to pair Salah and Nunez at the heart of the attack in the future when asked how the new formation affected the role of Al-Masry when playing on the right.

  • Klopp said in comments published by the “Liverpool Echo”: “Not at all, all we have to do is defend, and Mohamed Salah must defend at that time a little differently than he did in the past or in the middle.”

  • He added: "There is a chance for Mohamed Salah and Nunez to play as center-forward, that would be a high-speed combination! - but we need to get there somehow, we are still developing this kind of system, and we have to figure out the best way for it for a specific game."

  • And Klopp concluded: "Mohamed Salah can play a position of 10 (playmaker), and he was constantly in the center of the field (despite the start on the right side), he was not lucky here and there, but there is no difference offensively - defensively it is a little different for him."
