Report: Liverpool could use Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain as a 10

Changes to be made

Last season was a torrid one for the Reds with many Kopites checking out in the spring.

This is because there was just nobody to blame. It was just a series of unfortunate events.

Liverpool lost a string of key players to lengthy injuries and results suffered as a consequence.

Despite being top at Christmas fatigue set in in January and the Reds went on an historically poor run.

Before the start of next season we’re expecting changes to the playing staff as well as some tactical tweaks to deal with the low blocks we’ve been coming up against.

Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain at 10

One change we could see next season is a change in formation.

For a while fans have speculated about a return to the 4-2-3-1 we saw when Philippe Coutinho was at the club.

According to the Liverpool ECHO coaches have been impressed with Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain as a number 10 in training.

This suggests that the Reds are working on switching to their old formation ahead of next season.

What RTK has to say

We’d love to see a switch to 4-2-3-1 next season.

The move would get the best out of Thiago, he can sit deep and find the 10 in dangerous positions.

Furthermore, we could drop Roberto Firmino back and put an out and out finisher in front of him.

Fingers crossed the switch also gets the best out of The Ox. He impressed following his £35m switch but injuries have hampered him since.
