Can easily see Klopp changing to a 4231 next season. I personally think he would have started this season with it if he had signed Keita, with Coutinho as the 10. If our reported transfer targets are correct someone like Fekir would be perfect for that no10 as he can overlap into the spaces Firmino creates, a then for games we need to rotate and rest the forwards we can shift to the 433 where Fekir can slot in seemlessly to bobbys position. And for games Fekir is unavailable we can once again shift to the 433 that has worked so well this season.

I think our formation works great for big games but still need the option for a striker in my eyes. They created so much today and I do like solanke. With someone like fekir we can rest Salah/ mane or firmino against smaller teams and still have a strong attacking three or maybe four if needed, which I think is key.

That is actually a pretty good shout.

Expect we’ll see more of the 4-2-3-1 when keita joins, and particularly against defensive setups that look to pack their box and limit the space for our attack.

Having Firmino run the show at no.10 was very effective today, and having a striker ahead of him meant Mane and Salah could stay wide and stretch the defence. Having 4 goal scorers on the pitch was more important against Brighton than having 3 midfielders but that won’t be the same against every team.

Expect the 4-3-3 against RM where possession will be more even and our front three will have more space to exploit.

We seem too do better when teams have more possession against us, Madrid will definitely have more of ball for us too exploit an counter on them hope this is the case.

Agreed that the 4-2-3-1 worked well against Brighton. But don't agree that we should use it all season long simply because it is too offensive and exposes our defense way too much. Our fullbacks actually play like wingbacks, so that leaves only the centerbacks and the two midfielders to hold back. We're at our best with the 4-3-3, but I wouldn't be against the 4-2-3-1 for the last 15-20 minutes of a game, against a team that came with a fleet of parked buses.

Salah plays up the shoulder of center half and full back so we never played 1 up top if anything

4213 is more suited.
