      May or may not have noticed but I have an issue with Mo playing closer to Firmino. Yes they rely on inter play for a lot of the trickery but I like Mo to play wide right sometimes. As it is with him tucking in our play tends to go predominately down the left with Mane.

      With Mo tucking in TAA had to play wing back almost and some of his crosses came to nothing this season. That has been a bit disappointing from TAA. Yes the front 3 playing in tandem can play off each other but we don't have the same penetration down the right side.

      Shaq in there would give a bit more down the right but klopp has gone against that. I'll be looking at how much we create down the right if Mo tucks in.

      Last season Mo scored so many cos he played a lot like an inside right, running beyond Firmino in at the back post. You're right this meant more of our build up play came down the left, but it worked really well. This season he's played more like a winger and he just hasn't been getting into as many goal scoring positions ( plus Firmino's been left isolated, and the interplay between the front 3 hasn't been as good ). I think if he plays a bit higher and closer to Firmino again we will be a lot more dangerous.
