Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp has revealed that he could consider playing two strikers up front in the future as it is a feasible option for him.
Speaking to LFC TV, the German tactician suggested that as long as all of his strikers are fit and free of injury, he has more than one option this season.
Klopp has overseen two draws, against Tottenham and Rubin Kazan respectively, since taking charge at Anfield, and on both occasions he has primarily played with Divock Origi as his lone striker.
With Philippe Coutinho and Adam Lallana deployed in wide areas, while it was James Milner for the clash with Spurs, it appeared as though he may well have been set to continue with one striker spearheading his attack.
However, with Christian Benteke and Daniel Sturridge still recovering from injury, the former Dortmund boss may well consider changing his tactical approach slightly to go with two forwards up front.
Whether or not that suits his style with the players at his disposal at Liverpool remains to be seen, but as conceded by Lallana, as reported by Sky Sports, the players still need time to adapt to the German’s methods and what he is asking of them to do both on and off the ball.
Klopp arrived during the international break earlier this month and has had little time to work with his players, but they will undoubtedly draw confidence from their results thus far as they prepare for the visit of Southampton on Sunday.
Liverpool currently sit in 10th place in the Premier League table, but a win over the Saints could potentially lift them as high as fifth place depending on results elsewhere.
