Liverpool news Klopp needs to make Thiago change with Champions League worry PremierLeague-News.Com
PremierLeague-News.Com - In the second part of his column, John Aldridge describes what can be done with Thiago Alcantara and warns the Reds what no Champions League football could really mean
PremierLeague-News.Com - Breaking Sport Transfer News ! Thiago Alcantara is a fantastic player but personally I’d like to see him further up the park for Liverpool. He’s the one who can link the spaces between midfield and attack - the David Silva type. The signing from Bayern Munich needs to be making goals, or scoring himself. The Reds don’t actually shoot enough from outside the box for me at the moment - and we should be seeing more of that from Thiago but everything that’s happening with injuries and everything else will be impacting him as well. He’s probably questioning himself - is it me? It’s not just him because it's a team and the manager hasn’t been able to play Gini Wijnaldum, Jordan Henderson, Fabinho together in their usual positions all season, which is his strongest midfield trio. So Thiago has come in and done his best but sometimes you just don’t fit in straight away, we’ve seen it in the past. So people are pointing the finger at him but it’s not solely him. He can be a top player but he needs to be in a more attacking position. There’s more midfield worry with the injury to Jordan Henderson who had been filling in at centre-back. I would give young Nat Phillips a run in the captain’s place.

. Fabinho could be coming back soon and he may have to go back in defence again - or does Klopp decide no, Fabinho goes in midfield and pick two out of Ben Davies, Phillips, Kabak - he may have to. The top four, unless we get our skates on now, it will be massively against us next year. If Liverpool don’t get Champions League football and the owners decide without the money that comes in from the competition, we can’t buy what we need this summer - it has massive implications. What do you do? Maybe sell a big player to bring in two players? It’s massive and at this moment in time I can’t see us getting into that top four.
Liverpool set for 'new signing' boost next season after major decision
Things could change but can you really see them changing at Anfield right now? You’ve got to grind a 1-0 out from somewhere, the next home game. Bring the belief and the confidence back, I’ve seen it before, just get across the line, focus on a clean sheet and a goal to win and then you can build on it. Prenton Park South Congratulations to Tranmere Rovers on booking another trip to Wembley. I remember taking them there as a manager and it’s great to see them book another trip albeit in a different competition. Hopefully it can give them a big financial boost down the line and I’m just delighted to see it.
