HYS: Is Liverpool ace Shaqiri more effective as a number 10?

Xherdan Shaqiri is yet to be given his first start at Liverpool since joining from Stoke City in the summer.

The Switzerland international, who is valued at £16.2m by Transfermarkt, was never expected to be handed a spot in the starting XI instantly.

So far, Shaqiri has featured in two of the Reds’ four Premier League fixtures and both appearances were off the substitutes bench.

During pre-season, the 26-year-old impressed plenty of Liverpool supporters, and his status within the fanbase strengthened after his performances for Switzerland over the past week.

Against Iceland in a Nations League match on Saturday, Shaqiri played a pivotal part for Switzerland as he scored in the 6-0 thumping and pulled the strings in the number 10 role.

That position is one that the attacker played in plenty of times last season, but he is predominantly situated as a right winger.

Shaqiri’s versatility is a bonus for Liverpool, but would Klopp get more out of him if he was more central?
