Wednesday night just shows how far Jurgen Klopp has brought Liverpool. Battering Bayern Munich 1-3 away from home truly is a memorable result. What. A. Win.
Dominance over one of the Champions League favourites is one thing, but Jurgen Klopp and Liverpool fans alike still want the double. The German manager has not put all of his eggs in one basket and is optimistic for a historic season for the Reds, truly riding the crest of a wave.
Still, with a game against Fulham later today, and a chance to take back top spot, we take a look at some of the changes the Reds boss could make. Indeed, a win later could put the club back on top while Manchester City play in the FA Cup, potentially providing them with a psychological boost.
With that in mind, here’s a closer look.
Drop James Milner
With the pile up of games coming up towards the end of the season, especially with the push for another Champions League final, it’s time for squads to find out just how much depth and quality in that depth that they have.
With this in mind, James Milner may be looking over his shoulder, with Adam Lallana coming back to fitness it looks as though it may be time on a regular starting spot for the Englishman.
Klopp and Kopites alike should be full of confidence that if Milner is to be dropped later on today, the space will be filled with quality, a problem that Liverpool have had in previous seasons.
It truly is time to get excited if you are Red.
Start Adam Lallana
Coming back from injury and hitting full fitness at a perfect time, Adam Lallana has been thrown straight into the deep end of the title race and Champions League. Since being introduced into the first eleven again, the 30-year-old has adapted to the circumstances well and put in solid performances for the Reds.
Lallana will be eager to get another start against Fulham, after putting in a man of the match performance in the 4-2 home win over Burnley.
No matter who plays, Anfield is sure to bring more special atmospheres to games for the rest of this season, will there be any silverware to show for it at the end? We can’t wait to find out.
