HYS: Should Shaqiri be ahead of Lallana in Liverpool pecking order?

Liverpool have been held back in the past for not having enough strength in depth.

They have often been let down by the lack of quality on their bench, but this time around, Jurgen Klopp has a handful of options.

Georginio Wijnaldum, James Milner, Jordan Henderson, Naby Keita, Fabinho and Adam Lallana are among the list of players vying for a space in midfield.

Summer signing Xherdan Shaqiri can also be thrown into that pack, but he is also capable of filling in for one of the top three.

Mohamed Salah, Roberto Firmino and Sadio Mane are first on the teamsheet, but if injuries occur or one of them needs to be rested, Klopp has players to call upon.

At the weekend, the manager decided to start fringe player Lallana, who has struggled with injuries in recent seasons, against Cardiff City.

The England international joined Fabinho and Wijnaldum in the middle third and was later replaced by Shaqiri in the second half.

After the Switzerland international came onto the pitch, he made a big impact by scoring in the 4-1 triumph at Anfield.

Following the performances of the pair on Saturday, who do you think should be a priority for Klopp?
