So Lijnders press conference has confirmed that Shaqiri is out with a calf injury...should we be reading more into this? We know the lad is frustrated at limited opportunities in the 1st team and has spoken out about it several times recently. With Origi injured it must have been a right smack in the face seeing Klopp choose Lallana to come on in the Chelsea game before him:

Unused sub in Chelsea game
3 mins in Napoli game
6 mins in Newcastle game
5 mins in Burnley game
Unused sub in Arsenal game
Unused sub in Southampton game
Unused sub in Super cup v Chelsea
Unused sub in Norwich game
11 mins in the Charity Shield v Man City

No wonder Shaqiri is p.issed he's not being given any game time to affect a game!

I can understand he is not happy but I don't think he is faking an injury, in fact he has stopped playing for Switzerland just to be fitter

He's obviously ready to play because he's been a part of every squad selected so far this season. Is Klopp punishing Shaqiri for speaking out? because I cannot believe that Lallana is a better option to bring on then Shaqiri.

I agree, Lallana is nowhere near

Isn't Lallana on the final year of his current contract now?

Only if he was to be replaced, otherwise better to just keep even if not great.

It is pointless to compare shaqiri and lallana as their style is so much different.

When bringing in Lallana, I would say klopp would like to gain some control on the pitch. In addition, Lallana is very hardworking and is very familiar with Klopp's pressing system.


For Shaqiri, he is more creative. However, it is very clear that Shaqiri is not good defensively and he is not a good presser at all.


Therefore, I think if Klopp want someone to create and score more goals, Shaqiri will be the one to sub in. If we are in the lead, he probably wont feature Shaqiri too often.

Shaqiri does press, he is like a little terrier who snaps away at opponents heels and he also has an end product, along with his set piece capabilities. Lallana is tripe, watching the game last night I seen a player way past his best who has become comfortable warming the bench and collecting his pay cheque.

I don't mind him being p*ssed off a little, he's a top player in the peak of his career, but he's at Liverpool now and nowhere near the front 3's level.

He'll get games later in the season. As of now, 7/7 and no reason to change things.

Klopp seems to prefer 2 (lets say...) 'average' but consistent midfielders with a holding player. It's starting to make sense. We're now grinding out wins whereas creative players can destroy teams one week, then be completely anonymous the next. It's reliant on the top 3 of course but they are the best top 3 in world football..

HUGE win today.
