It wouldn't work with Salah in my opinion. The moment you bring him to a RAM he becomes far less effective because he can't play off the back line so much. Maybe a 4-2-2-2 with Salah and Firmino the most advanced but I don't see us moving to a 4-2-3-1 as our main formation but of course you could be right. I think we'll stick with a 4-3-3 with Fekir mainly helping rotate our front 3, with him playing the odd game in midfield to help break through more defensive teams.I can't see him in a midfield three, don't think it suits his game, he reminds me of benzema/suarez more than de bruyne/gotze. I think Klopp is moving back to his 4231 formation that he used so much at dortmund. Think we'll line up as
mane firmino salah
which reminds me quite a lot of klopps teams at dortmund. For example:
reus gotze blazcykowski
The main difference is that all four of our attackers are harder working and primarily goal scorers, whereas dortmund had a creator in gotze/ kagawa. I'd be excited to see if it works. Think Fekir might step on salah and firmino's toes a bit. I've quite liked having three in midfield the past few years.
