      Terrible last night - his form is worrying

      He is still learning the midfield role.

      We lack balance when he plays.......and he tends to overplay.

      Important goals this season and s role to play. I’m just not a huge fan of him in that AM free role.

      He's also improved his defending and tracking, and I think we'll see further improvements in those area's.

      I completely underestimated his slowness. He's just not fast enough. If he was he'd be world class. I envisioned him to become our Messi-kind-of-leader in the midfield, but he doesn't like to take the ball and command the midfield, maybe also Klopp doesn't allow it. He seems purely a striker. Would be interesting to look deeper if there's more in him than Klopp wants or forces. Still a good signing though. One silent game doesn't change anything.

      Without doubt. Almost looks to have gotten a bit complacent since the Wolves game. He’s starting virtually every game at the moment but he’s playing like he knows he will be the following match too, regardless of how he plays.
      Needs to get back on the bench and be an impact player again, was looking so much better like that and it was killing off other teams.
      Would have felt a lot better seeing him come off the bench than Lallana!!

      Would give him a start tonight, think he needs to find his rhythm again, once he does I have no doubt he will be a key player in the last stretch of the season.

      Having him back in the team could also be a big boost for Mo as he seems to be able to find him in dangerous spaces.

      I totally agree. We need his spice. He has that flair in him that at the moment, we're missing.

      If Klopp wants to be adventurous and get us scoring again he has to start Shaq.

      Otherwise I fear our football will remain stagnant and we'll ultimately hand City the title.

      I'd start rotating him in for Mane or Salah, you can normally see straight away if those 2 will have a good game or not and Klopp needs to be a bit more proactive and brave with subbing one of them off. Sturridge will never again be the answer and Origi just doesn't seem to have IT, but Shaq has a similar kind of energy and skill as them and can do a good job for us.
      Another option is to start with Shaq and then have the option of bringing Mane or Salah on, what a sub that would be!

      If we start with Shaq and only one for Salah/Mane who else do we play up top in the 3?

      looks like Origi gets the nod. Not sure why Shaq hasn't had more chances I thought he was doing ok

      Maybe Origi is showing more in training, it is a weird one because whenever Shaq has come on he has looked good and on the rare occaision where he isn't making an impact he definitely puts the effort in.

      Maybe Klopp thinks we need more of a change out on the left side and isn't willing to put Shaq out there.

      What's happened to this guy to make both Origi and Lallana ahead of him in the pecking order? No offence to Adam but what has he actually done this season?

      Hardly seems likely when heca t get on ahead of Lallana in a front three position. Has gone completely off the boil and new seems to be out of favour.

      He really does seem to have fallen down the pecking order recently doesn't he which I find weird as he is a real game changer of a player and the nearest we have to Coutinho currently in the squad. I can only assume that he isn't properly fit or his performances in training suck or Klopp just doesn't like him.

      Played 18mins in the last 6 games, not played at all for the last 4. So is it that questionable attitude showing through or just not doing enough in training?

      Either way, something doesn’t seem quite right.

      It doesn’t make any sense.

      Think he might be sold in the Summer myself mate to make way for a better attacking player.

      Plus with Ox coming back it's hard to see a place for Shaq next season.

      Unless Klopp feels Shaq and Keita need this season to learn his system.

      I’ve seen a few things saying how Klopp isn’t happy how when he plays, it’s basically just hugging the right hand side of the pitch. But even still, it wasn’t an issue before and he was coming on and getting important goals and assists so something has to have happened because to not even be used when we need a goal it seems odd. Barely even notice him warming up on the sideline either.

      I think you could be right about him moving on. We’d make a tidy profit on him too so maybe that was part of his signing, to then allow us more room to get a preferred player in?

      Klopp see's him every day in training, see's all his training and fitness stats, see's his personality and attitude.

      It makes sense to Klopp, the bloke with all the info, and that's really all that matters.

      Everyone else is just guessing.

      his attitude has been questioned in the past if he listens to Jürgen he can make the step up to being a top EPL player.
      At the moment he is being Klopperised
