The only definite need is cover at LB. Ox will be ready next season, Brewster will be ready to play, and I expect Kieta to be firing on all cylinders. Depending on how you feel about Milner at LB, maybe not even that is a definite (I'd like someone else in the squad capable).Definition being that with squad players going, unless we replace them with similar or better quality, we are have a less able squad than last season.
As much as Moreno or sturridge or mignolet didn’t play too much, they were there if needed.
Milner can play left back, but he’s 34 and can’t be expected to cover every position like an odd job man.
We have question marks over lallana, lovren and oxlades fitness and then matip and Gomez missed quite a few as well.
Can you expect TAA to play most games?
If Salah hits a dry patch again (he was stuck on 49 goals for ages) or mane goes a while without scoring, we can’t rotate it.
I’m not saying we should spend for spendings sake but we shouldn’t let the champions league success hide the fact that our squad is very scarce in places and we are in such a good position to attract quality we shouldn’t let it go amiss.
Personally I'd also like to see competition or a rotation option for the front 3, but I think klopp will give Brewster or wilson some time. Brewster is the one to watch for me. I hope he takes his chance when it comes. If he doesn't, I expect klopp will go into the market, but I think Brewster gets his chance first.
