Liverpool have had their struggles with strength in depth in the past, but now manager Jurgen Klopp has a brand new problem.
The German coach has midfield options bursting at the seams, which is not the worst issue to have.
After bringing Fabinho and Naby Keita to the club in the summer, the competition for places in the middle of the park heated up.
Klopp began the season with Wijnaldum in the number 6 role, and after impressing in a 4-0 triumph over West Ham United at Anfield, the Dutchman has kept his place.
In fact, the manager has maintained the first XI for subsequent Premier League games against Crystal Palace and Brighton, with James Milner and Naby Keita joining Wijnaldum in midfield.
Club captain Jordan Henderson has had cameo appearances so far, while new signing Fabinho is yet to make his debut for the Reds.
