Would anyone else like to see Salah and Mane switch sides?

Both players need to cut in at the moment to have a shot and I think it slows our play down a bit.

Moreno has been over-lapping quite well on Mane's side but this does mean that Mane has to stop and wait for the natural left footer to come by.

I know that Klopps philosophy (previously) on attacking has been to get to the byline with pace and drill into the box for a simple tap-in, if you look at early training videos you can see that shooting drills are pretty much just this.

I'd like to see Salah on the left and Mane on the right using their pace to get to the byline and then drilling in for players in the box or edge of the box to poach a couple.

Mane scored did a great job from the right last season and I think he should stay there with Salah on the left.

Anyone else agree?

Yes I was thinking the same thing. Or at least cross over to mix things up in the game. I don't remember any real crosses last night which is worrying considering Milner and Clyne last year didn't deliver But I'm prepared give Salah a bit more time to adjust. TAA is encouraging.

I have no issues with Mane and Salah cutting inside if that gives them an option to take a short from distance provided or Full backs overlap and hit the byline to cut inside with a cross!

Was thinking that at times last night. As both players seemed to always be on weak foot when the had a chance on goal going down outside of defender. Thus meaning weak efforts. Same on a few occasions in Watford game. But both look very dangerous and showing good signs so early on in season.

or return to the fluid front 3 we had during first half of last season?

we were unpredictable playing that way last season.

Or they could put in some practice with their weaker feet?

I think Klopp is breaking in salah gently, I expect they will swap sides at will once they are more settled.

Look at Bayern over the last few years. Robben and Ribery. I assume that is the model.
