Jurgen Klopp has found deputies for Mo Salah and Sadio Mane, solving Liverpool’s transfer problem.


Jurgen Klopp has found deputies for Mo Salah and Sadio Mane, resolving Liverpool’s transfer problem.

Liverpool will be without their star duo for the majority of the season, but Jurgen Klopp has a plan B.

Jurgen Klopp has been hesitant to rely on his squad’s fringe players unless absolutely necessary, and the German has had his fair share of injuries over the past two seasons.

At the very least, the Liverpool manager knows he’ll be without two of his key players in January, and he’ll have more time to prepare this time.

The fact that Liverpool blew away Arsenal 4-0 in the second half was beneficial to the Reds manager because it allowed him to rest some of his tired players.

Sadio Mane’s header put them ahead at halftime, and Diogo Jota’s strike doubled the lead.

Mohamed Salah ensured that all three members of the attacking trident scored, allowing Klopp to rest his key players.

In the coming weeks, Liverpool fans are likely to see more of Takumi Minamino and Divock Origi.

Certainly more than at any other time during the season.

And Klopp would have been pleased that Minamino got in on the act to cap off a resounding victory.

When Salah and Mane leave for the Africa Cup of Nations on December 27, the Japanese will be called upon to fill in as a first-team regular.

They could be gone for up to six weeks, depending on how well their countries do in the competition.

It is impossible to overstate the significance of losing two of Liverpool’s top attackers.

Salah has 11 Premier League goals and has assisted on seven others this season, while Mane has seven goals and one assist.

If Liverpool’s goals were taken away this season, they would lose more than half of their total of 35.

It will be difficult to replace the pair, and Klopp has not ruled out making a January move to provide cover.

Rennes’ Jeremy Doku, Leeds’ Raphinha, and Sparta Prague’s Adam Hlozek have all been mentioned as possible signings.

Klopp, on the other hand, is a cautious spender, as evidenced by his signing of Ozan Kabak on loan and Ben Davies for £500,000 from Preston in the January 2021 window.

That’s the situation.
