In a repeat of the situation in January when Sadio Mane was missing from the side, Liverpool have to find a way to be effective without him.

Thanks to a lack of January business, the possible solutions are the same as they were a couple of months ago. Klopp began with one he used on the odd occasion earlier in the year, which was to play Roberto Firmino on the right.

This certainly isn’t the Brazilian’s most effective position, but you get similar things from him wherever he plays. Hard work, a reasonable goal threat, and his link with Philippe Coutinho.

This link led to the first Liverpool goal. Firmino latched on to a loose ball after Origi’s header before sending Coutinho in one-on-one with Artur Boruc.

Firmino played all three attacking positions at some point in the Merseyside derby, so is obviously the go-to player when versatility is needed.
