Liverpool Football Tickets: Jurgen Klopp’s new Liverpool football club’s midfield’ might explain Gini Wijnaldum decision

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp is readying a midfield trio that fans only saw once last season. If there was a game that encapsulated Liverpool’s season last term, it would be October’s 2-2 draw with Everton. One of the fiercest and controversial derbies in years, the Reds headed across Stanley Park for the 237th edition of a local skirmish that seemingly had everything.

Goals, red cards, injuries, and, of course, VAR drama. It also had the lesser-spotted Liverpool midfield of Thiago Alcantara, Jordan Henderson, and Fabinho. For all the headlines that followed the game around Virgil van Dijk’s season-ending injury, the intervention to deny a stoppage-time Jordan Henderson winner and Jordan Pickford’s escaping of censure, one particular statistic that emerged from the fallout of October 17 went quietly under the radar.

That game was the only time Klopp named that trio of Fabinho, Thiago, and Henderson in his midfield. Richarlison’s red card for a poor challenge on debutant Thiago would subsequently leave the Spaniard out until after Christmas as a result. By the time he returned to the side, in the late December draw at Newcastle, Fabinho was already being asked to help out a depleted defensive department still reeling from the long-term injuries to Van Dijk and Joe Gomez.

And by the time Fabinho, who himself succumbed to a couple of setbacks himself, was afforded the chance to move back into midfield, Henderson’s season was already over, having pulled up in the 2-0 defeat to none other than Everton in February.

Yes, it was that kind of campaign for Klopp and his charges last year. This time around, however, hope springs eternal. The departure of Gini Wijnaldum has not forced the club into the market for a replacement so far. And as the debate over that particular bit of wisdom goes on, Klopp is preparing to finally unleash a midfield on the Premier League he feels has the perfect blend of attributes to thrive.

It is why the pursuit of a Wijnaldum replacement has seemingly gone quiet. Those on the inside at Anfield have spoken about Klopp and sporting director, Michael Edwards’ desire to recruit players who are capable of going straight into the first team.

Klopp is not in the business for stockpiling players for the sake of it, meaning any recruit would have to be capable of dislodging the likes of Thiago, Fabinho, and Henderson, all key men in teams who have won the Champions League in the last two years.

That, then, is the conundrum Liverpool is faced with on the midfielder front, particularly while there is a limit to the budget. This season, though, Liverpool fans will at least be treated to a new midfield, of sorts. Even if it was only the surreal events of the last term that kept them from viewing it in full flow over the last year or so.

On paper, the trio combines all the skills needed for a vibrant and fearsome engine room. At the base, Fabinho’s defensive nous, strength, and comfort in possession give the Reds a solid, sturdy platform to build their attacks from. The No.3 has established himself as one of the leading defensive midfielders in English football over the last three seasons and Liverpool’s upturn in fortunes towards the end of the campaign – winning eight of a 10-game unbeaten stretch – was largely down to his return to his natural position.

To his left, Thiago. Arguably the most high-profile signing of Liverpool’s Premier League era, the two-time Champions League winner arrived 11 months ago fresh from a Man of the Match display for Bayern Munich in their European Cup triumph just a few weeks earlier. The injury at Goodison Park was damaging but so was the inability to play in front of a ‘proper’ backline alongside the midfielders he joined the club to feature with.

Like many others, Thiago stumbled at the turn of the year as the Reds’ form took a nosedive that would see them lose six successive games at Anfield for the first time in club history. As spring rolled in, however, the Spain international began to find his feet and turned in several assured performances.

The 2-1 win over West Brom in May will always be remembered for the heroics of a certain Alisson Becker, but Thiago purred that day at the Hawthorns in the same way he did in a 4-2 win over Manchester United earlier that week. He showed no signs of wilting on his maiden trip to Turf Moor either as the Reds won 3-0 at Burnley before sewing up a top-three finish with a comfortable victory at home to Crystal Palace on the final day of a testing term in the Premier League.

A goal in the 2-0 win over Southampton in early May also saw him break his season-long duck and the feeling around Anfield is that the former Barcelona youngster will truly take flight alongside Henderson and Fabinho in front of a back four that will contain two of Van Dijk, Joel Matip, Ibrahima Konate and Joel Matip.

To Thiago’s right, Henderson will patrol Liverpool’s midfield for the 11th straight season. The captain may have seen his name attributed to some surprise headlines around his Liverpool future of late, but the England international will be raring to go this season. He, like everyone else in the squad, will be hurt by how the Premier League title Liverpool worked so hard for was relinquished.

A stuttering run of form at the turn of the year that coincided with the injury crisis biting meant that the Reds had little chance to go toe-to-toe with Manchester City like they had done a previous couple of campaigns. Henderson will have been distraught at how his season ended too after he limped off with a groin problem while deputizing as an emergency center-back in their first defeat to Everton over 10 years back in February.

The PFA Players’ Player of the Year a little over 12 months ago, Henderson will be hellbent on wrestling back the crown he and his teammates fought so hard for when the action gets going later this month. With precision, power, and persistence, Liverpool’s ‘new-look midfield’ might just have it all this season.
