Liverpool could play with two strikers according to Jurgen Klopp

Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp has hinted that he could change his system throughout the course of the season.

As reported by the Daily Mail, the revered coach claims that he could deploy two strikers in his team in the future. 

In Klopp's first two games in charge of the Reds, two draws, Belgium international Divock Origi has led the line in attack, but it appears that Klopp could change the dynamic of his squad once his strikers return to full fitness.

Origi's compatriot Christian Benteke returned to action last night following a recent injury while England international Daniel Sturridge remains on the sidelines with a knee problem. Danny Ings, meanwhile, could miss the remainder of the campaign after suffering serious knee ligament damage.

It appears, though, that Klopp's open to changing his system in pursuit of success on English soil. The 48-year-old told reporters: "If all the strikers are fit we have to think how we can use their quality. I don't know if we will use two strikers on Sunday but in the future for sure it is an option. Christian was unlucky with the post, Roberto did well. They are two very important options.

"I'm not sure we should talk about the rest of the season. Sunday is the most important thing. I saw many good things. That is what we are working for.

"The last moment was not good enough and that's why it was a draw. We have had two experiences and now we are on to the next one."

Striker dilemma 

Klopp's immediate concern, of course, will be getting his forward stars up to scratch. Worryingly, the duo of Benteke and Sturridge have failed to maintain their fitness over a consistent period for some time now, so it's crucial that Klopp can get them firing again. 

It's clear for all to see that Liverpool are in desperate need of goals right now. It's only taken Klopp two games to realise that. Just one goal in 180 minutes under his control has certainly confirmed that notion, but there's no reason why he won't be able to get his side producing the goods once again. 

With the creative and dynamic trio of Philippe Coutinho, Roberto Firmino and Adam Lallana all plying their trade at Anfield, Klopp has the foundations to stimulate his side in attack.
