Jurgen Klopp has a welcome selection dilemma ahead of Thursday’s showdown with Borussia Dortmund.
He’s mostly selected just one centre-forward, but Daniel Sturridge and Divock Origi played together in the second-half demolition of Stoke and did brilliantly.
What’s more, a statistic has emerged that states Liverpool score a goal every 36 minutes when they’re both on the pitch.
Against Dortmund though, it could be reckless to start two strikers. Origi was excellent during the first-leg and backed it up with a brace at the weekend, but Sturridge put in a similarly superb and also hard-working display v the Potters.
Who would you go with, Reds?
The Origi/Sturridge ? is a good 1 to have.
Both? Nah. Klopp likes 1 up top. So unless he plays Origi wide (possible) it’s 1 or other. #LFC

Origi and Sturridge giving you choices up top is a good problem to have.

Origi > sturridge?

Personally, I’d start both Origi and Sturridge against Dortmund. They linked up brilliantly so I’d give them another chance together. #LFC

After today’s game I would love to see Sturridge and Origi both start up front against Dortmund #LFC

Both Origi and Sturridge staking a claim for a start on Thursday. Who do you think should start?

@KeithCostigan I think he will go with Origi…seemed to work well first game..and Sturbridge off the bench isn’t a bad thing either.
