Liverpool have done well so far this season, with many of Jurgen Klopp’s men impressing. That said, there’s always room for further improvement, and one man that hasn’t had that much action so far this season is Xherdan Shaqiri. He was always signed to be a rotational option, and that’s exactly what he’s been this term. However, his form has indicated that he’s capable of being something more than that.
He’s offered tremendous quality whenever he has played this season. Offering brilliant passing, vision, dribbling and technique, the Swiss attacker has been a breath of fresh air in the Liverpool midfield.
Klopp does lack creative options in the middle of the park, and though perhaps more of a natural winger, Shaqiri poses an interesting proposition in that role this season.
Shaqiri is, clearly, a player that fans want to see more of. We recently made the case that Shaqiri should be a regular for Anfield going forward, and an overwhelming majority of fans agree.
Of those polled, a whopping 98% of Liverpool fans feel like Shaqiri should start every single game under Jurgen Klopp, and that indicates just how popular he is with fans.
Shaqiri has already put in a number of brilliant performances this season, and based on that, he does deserve more chances. Liverpool have lacked a Philippe Coutinho-like force in the middle of the park as of late – and could Shaqiri be that man? Fans clearly think so.
