Important players have recovered from injuries, Sadio Mane has returned from the African Cup of Nations and Jurgen Klopp is getting his squad back to full strength.
With this in mind, Liverpool fans are keen to see the Reds boss revert back to the setup that saw us enjoy such an impressive start to the season.
Adam Lallana was outstanding in a new central midfield role during the opening months of the campaign and supporters are calling for Klopp to drop the England star back into his deeper position after injuries had forced him to play in the front three.
The 28-year-old’s work rate and technical ability has seen him thrive in midfield in terms of his ability to retrieve the ball before joining in with attacks. His delayed arrival into the final third has also resulted in him chipping in with goals and providing more assists.
Lallana looks a good bet to retain his place in the middle given Emre Can’s recent dip in form and Mane’s inevitable return to the attacking front line alongside Roberto Firmino and Philippe Coutinho.
Fans have had their say on Twitter.
Imo Emre Can needs to sit out n bring back Lallana to midfield .. more goal scoring n creative options #LFC

I guess Klopp might bench Emre and get lallana on to the midfield as we’re lacking of creating chances and poor finishes recently. #lfc

Midfield of Lallana, Gini and Henderson is a must today, anything else can piss off.

Looking forward to Wijnaldum, Henderson and Lallana as the midfield three tomorrow hopefully. Best midfield we have.

Praying Klopp plays Mane, Coutinho and Firmino in attack with Lallana back into midfield tomorrow, think we’ll demolish Hull is its the case

I like Emre Can and he’s going to be a top player but needs to be left out today. Hendo Gini & Lallana Midfield 3
