Klopp warns flexible Liverpool to prepare for different systems

Klopp's side are set to return to pre-season training next week ahead of their upcoming Hong Kong tour and involvement in the Audi Cup, and the former Borussia Dortmund boss is hoping the new recruits and young starlets can help the Anfield club's progress.

This being said, the 42 goals they conceded were the most by any team in the top four and a poor January undid a lot of their brilliant pre-Christmas form.

"Tactically-wise, getting more flexible - depending who is there and when - and introducing different systems", Klopp told the club's website when asked for his pre-season aims.

'[In 2015-16], we played most of the time kind of 4-2-3-1, [in 2016-17] most of the time 4-3-3 or 4-5-1. Given Sturridge's continued inability to remain match fit for large parts of the season, Liverpool can no longer rely on the player to lead the line week-in, week-out, despite his clear goalscoring talent.

"And that is the right policy, rather than splashing their cash on six or eight players, like they seem to have done during the last few years".

Klopp added: "And we will prepare for European football also, so we need a bigger squad of course". We'll be good. I'm looking forward to it'.

The first friendly of the preseason is just around the corner, and Liverpool's players will be convening later in the week to begin preparations for an immensely important start to the 2017-18 campaign.

"They can make big steps because they are a little bit settled in a good way".

This would accommodate the likes of Mohamed Salah, Roberto Firmino and Sadio Mane in a conventional front three as well as granting Philippe Coutinho the opportunity to play in a free role, perhaps in the deeper midfield position Klopp has previously discussed.
