HYS: Which formation works better for Liverpool?

Last season, Liverpool earned plenty of plaudits for their performances on the pitch.

With Mohamed Salah, Roberto Firmino and Sadio Mane firing on all cylinders, the Reds ripped opposition defences apart.

In the current campaign, Jurgen Klopp’s side are well placed to go all the way and win the Premier League title as they currently sit second in the table, two points adrift of Manchester City.

The team remain unbeaten in the top flight, but they have lacked the flair and tenacity that impressed audiences last season.

Since Klopp took over from Brendan Rodgers in October 2015, Liverpool have predominantly played in a 4-3-3 formation.

In a handful of games this season, the German coach has experimented with a 4-2-3-1 system.

Against Fulham last weekend, the performance was once again lacklustre, but they managed to earn a 2-0 victory thanks to goals from Salah and Xherdan Shaqiri.

Klopp opted to play Fabinho and Georginio Wijnaldum in the centre of the park, with Shaqiri, Firmino and Mane sitting in front of them.

Salah lead the line on his own up front, and interestingly, every time that Klopp has selected this system, it has been on home soil.

Taking the club’s season so far into account, what system do you think is best for Liverpool?
