I'm hoping to see Klopp change things up a bit for this match. Not because our usual lineup isn't working, but because I think we could benefit from having more than 1 "go-to" formation and tactical plan. We would also benefit from getting 1 or 2 of Lallana, Keita, Chambo, or Shaq playing to the peak of their ability. Personally, I'd like to see a 4-2-2-2 as I think it makes the best use of the resources we currently have. The double pivot provides plenty of cover for our CB's and the narrow midfield provides acres of space for our fullbacks to exploit.
Playing 2 forwards would allow us to rest 1 of the usual front 3. It would also seem to suit Origi as I don't find him to be as effective when positioned on the wing.
Playing a double pivot would allow Klopp to rest 1 of Gini, Hendo, or Fab on occasion.
The 2 CAM positions would provide Keita, Ox, Lallana, and/or Shaq the opportunity to play themselves into form.
We are about to enter an incredibly busy couple of months and will need to rotate effectively without compromising performance or results. I think the 2 games against Genk, the League Cup match against Arsenal, and the return fixture against Salzburg provide good opportunities to experiment.
Gomez - Lovren - VVD - Robbo
Fab - Gini
Chambo - Keita
Mane - Firmino
* Edited per Fatty's comment. Gomez to RB and Dej in at CB
