Klopp's Midfield Dilemma Ahead of Crystal Palace Clash

At long last, there is genuine depth in Liverpool's midfield. The Reds are no longer praying for certain players to stay fit and there are now six or seven reliable, experienced figures who can be effective whenever required. This was perfectly illustrated during Sunday's 4-0 victory over West Ham, as Jurgen Klopp's men got their season off to a perfect start without even hitting top gear.

Being a Liverpool Supporter - The Anxiety is Real
