How will the Liverpool look without their top scorer in all competitions?

first_img 5 Liverpool have been dealt another huge blow to their hopes of success this season with the news Danny Ings will miss the rest of the season through injury.The striker made his England debut on Monday and is the Reds’ top scorer in all competitions but now see his first campaign at Anfield cruelly cut short.His absence leaves Jurgen Klopp a little light up top now, but just how will Liverpool look without the hard-working forward?talkSPORT takes a look.1. No Benteke?It’s unlikely Jurgen Klopp will start with two strikers in the team so he could choose to play Daniel Sturridge centrally to chase and harry defenders, ahead of Benteke. This would allow Divock Origi or Adam Lallana to come into the side to play on the flank along with Roberto Firmino on the opposite side. Philippe Coutinho, who usually links well with Sturridge would play in a No.10 role. 5 5 5 3. Coutinho and Sturridge on the flanksHe might not be the normal type of striker Klopp goes for but Christian Benteke could well be his first-choice in a central role. Instead of playing behind the Belgian, Sturridge could find himself out on the right, a position has played before, with Coutinho opposite him on the left and Firmino coming in as a No.10. 2. Sturridge behind BentekeKlopp, if he does choose to start Sturridge and Benteke together, would probably put the English forward in a deeper role. This could see Firmino and Coutinho playing deeper in attacking midfield positions, which would allow Nathaniel Clyne and Alberto Moreno to push forward and provide width. 4. Sturridge on the leftGiven Sturridge’s success against Aston Villa came as he came from the left, Klopp could use the forward in this role going forward. This would allow Benteke to continue as the centre forward, while Firmino could line up on the right with Coutinho as No.10.
