PremierLeague-News.Com - After maximising the potential of 4-3-3 over the past six years, Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp could be about to make a change
PremierLeague-News.Com - Breaking Sport Transfer News ! The new Premier League season is on the horizon. Liverpool are preparing to go one better than last year this time around - and they could achieve their goal by changing tactics. Jurgen Klopp has a number of new tools to utilise at Anfield. This summer, Liverpool added Darwin Nunez, Fabio Carvalho and Calvin Ramsay to their squad, but also sanctioned the sale of Sadio Mane to Bayern Munich. With constant evolution consuming the minds of Reds boss Klopp and his assistants, their side look set to adapt in the coming months. The dynamics of the squad have changed and as a result, the team's tactics could follow suit.

Although his core principles appear certain to remain untouched, the Reds are open to the possibility of playing with different formations and tailoring fresh roles for new players this season. Speaking about Nunez during pre-season, Klopp said: "It was always clear that in a situation like this, a striker with his skill set will need time because it’s different to what we had before." The German coach isn't wrong. The 23-year-old is almost the polar opposite of Roberto Firmino upon inspection of how the two players operate when deployed as a central striker. Nunez does not engage in constructing moves very often, instead dedicating most of his energy to the penalty box. He is a poacher who is quick enough to pose a threat in behind and standing around 6ft 2in, he also adds a physical presence up top.

. The Brazilian is more of a midfielder than a striker, chasing opponents, working for the team and providing a glue of sorts in the final third. Given the differences between the duo, a tactical shift makes perfect sense as a means of accommodating Nunez. Considering the Uruguayan won't drop into the same withdrawn pockets as Firmino, perhaps it makes sense to field a No.10 behind Nunez who will do exactly that, such as Carvalho. Throughout the course of last season, Carvalho was deployed as a No.10 by Fulham manager Marco Silva. He scored 11 goals in the Championship while registering a further seven assists, posting those numbers despite being a teenager. The Portuguese-born attacker has a flawless touch, he's tricky in tight spaces and he's inclined to nick a goal despite his inventive nature, offering a healthy blend of scoring and creating. Klopp's favoured 4-3-3 system does not incorporate a No.10 but with Nunez and Carvalho added, perhaps it makes sense to lean towards 4-2-3-1, especially considering the Reds have opted against signing a new midfielder this summer. 4-3-3 has been retained in pre-season so far – with Carvalho playing as a wide forward and as a central midfielder – but as the campaign progresses, it would not be a surprise if 4-2-3-1 begins to assume the spotlight. Liverpool are always searching for ways to improve but after maximising the potential of 4-3-3 over the past six years, the arrivals of Nunez and Carvalho could spark a change in shape.
