Liverpool: Fans trust Jurgen Klopp’s judgement on selection dilemma

With the manager routinely fielding three midfield players in his starting line-up, he has been given plenty of food for thought by the recent form of those playing in that part of the pitch.

Including the 1-1 draw at Manchester United on October 20th, no fewer than six Liverpool midfielders have found the net since then, with Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain leading the way with four goals while Adam Lallana, Jordan Henderson, James Milner, Georginio Wijnaldum and Fabinho have all scored one each in that time.

The only senior midfielder yet to get off the mark this season has been Naby Keita, who has been restricted to eight appearances in a campaign that has seen him miss six weeks with a torn muscle bundle as well as limping out of the Carabao Cup game against Arsenal in October.

The glut of goals from midfield is all the more remarkable considering that, prior to last month’s international break, the only midfielders to have scored for the Reds this season were Milner (two) and Wijnaldum (one).

Fabinho, Wijnaldum and Henderson have been Liverpool’s three most-used midfielders so far in 2019/20, each playing for more than 1,000 minutes across the Reds’ 20 games in all competitions. [via TransferMarkt]
