      He can start ahead of Mo versus Burnley...think Mo needs a wee rest.

      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.

      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.

      What doesn’t make sense to me is having him on the bench if he’s not fit enough or has attitude problems or anything else.. put a youngster on there instead if you have no intention of giving the geezer minutes.

      Everton? We needed a plan B then. We needed a plan B for more than the last 15mins against the Mancs too.

      The fact that Sturridge is playing the odd minute at the end of games and played an hour vs the Mancs and Shaqiri isn’t even getting that isn’t a good sign for him after such a positive start.

       I don’t think it’s that complicated to be honest.

      When he’s played in the midfield he hasn’t been aware enough positionally or sound defensively.

      He isn’t gonna play through the middle up top so he’s basically vying with Mo and Sadio at this point......

      Divock finding a wee bit of form has also not helped him as a sub.

      To me it’s that straightforward but as one of the lads says - Jürgen sees him day in day out and makes the calls. The rest of us are interpreting / inferring and guessing.

      Still can't believe he didn't get any game time against his former Club Munich.

      Thought as well, he should have got some minutes last night, come on and replaced Mo who I thought was starting to become a bit selfish in getting that 50th goal.

      I hope he stays with us and starts to get a few minutes again.

      The thing is, it could be any one of dozens of reasons, including that some are a better option at the moment.

      Just because we've got a lot of people on here shouting for him to start, doesn't mean it should happen.

      To be fair he's been anonymous when he did get game time. I don't think he is consistently good enough.

      That being said although he is out of the picture for now it's still early in his Liverpool career. If he can stay focussed and work to improve himself his chance will come.

      I also include Keita in this. It will be the work behind the scenes that will be vital for the players who aren't making the field just now.

      I'm sure Klopp will have told them what he expects and how they can do it.

      I think the Boss is tweaking Shaq slightly, we have seen it with Fabinho & we will it similar with Keita too..

      Shaq still has plenty to provide in the fixtures coming up..

      Unless he has bought into Klopp's way of doing things 100% in training and when he plays Klopp will not trust him. He has players he trusts and they have earned his trust and I am not saying Shaq isn't doing all he can but so far he clearly isn't at the front of Klopp's selection plans. Its up to him to work hard and listen and then do it on the pitch when required.
      Just look at how hard Mo and Sadio work without the ball that takes some doing

      Klopp said it many times that with Shaqiri, we need to twick the formation and he is not comfortable enough to do it this late in the season.

      We will see him some time do not worry!

      This might sound like I'm being off so I will say now, I don't mean it to come across that way but it's because people like to discuss and know what is going on with the club. Don't think anyone claims to know exactly what is going on but that's the case with everything, if we aren't allowed to discuss things like this because some people start saying only Klopp knows, Klopp is the one who see's them in training etc, then you may as well not bother discussing pre-match things, transfer related things, injuries or anything else because Klopp is the one who knows all of this stuff where as we don't so what's the point, may as well delete all of our accounts if that's the case.
      But then there will be times when it is common knowledge but maybe the person asking just hasn't seen it yet so maybe that is why they start asking things. For example, I just replied to a post about why Robbo is a doubt to play for Scotland but I could easily have turned around and said "maybe he's injured but only Klopp knows so there's no point talking about it".

      We are all on the outside, it's guesswork for us all on the majority of things.

      Could explain him being a peripheral figure?

      Liverpool midfielder Xherdan Shaqiri has withdrawn from Switzerland's squad because of a groin injury.

      Switzerland play the first of their 2020 European Championship qualifiers in Georgia on Saturday, before a home game against Denmark on 26 March.

      Shaqiri, 27, has scored six goals for the Premier League leaders this season, but has not started a match since 30 January.

      Liverpool's next game is at home against Tottenham on 31 March.

      The Reds, aiming to become English champions for the first time since 1990, have a two-point lead over Manchester City, although Pep Guardiola's side have a game in hand.

      Liverpool have seven Premier League games remaining in 2018-19 and also face Porto in the quarter-finals of the Champions League.
