Loads of Liverpool fans have been discussing their improved squad depth, after a picture of a “second eleven” showed just how far the Reds have come under Jürgen Klopp.
While plenty the focus in today’s football is solely on results and trophies, managers like Klopp and Mauricio Pochettino have done wonderful work at their respective clubs without actually winning anything of substance.
Both managers joined squads packed full of average players, and a few years down the line are now packed full of quality stars that any team in the world would happily take.
Much of the focus this summer for Liverpool was on improving the depth in their squad, and am image showing the players who are not starting right now has got fans in high spirits.
Players like Jordan Henderson, Fabinho, Alberto Moreno, Dejan Lovren and Daniel Sturridge have yet to start a game this season, but would all have been considered as first choice not too long ago.
You can see the full “second eleven” here, and fans are delighted with their genius transfer business under Klopp, as you can see from the Twitter reactions down below…

To be fair this team is better than most teams. Could easily get into top 8.

Start of last season that is our starting CB partnership. Insane

Basically finally done what most top clubs do which is replace our starters with better players and relegate who we had to the bench for depth. Too long we were buying “squad depth” and not improving the first XI
