    Ok, bar a massive fluke on the last day and we go back for Fekir, we're going into the season without a direct replacement for Coutinho/no.10 that Klopp obviously wanted.

    Who is going to play the most this season for us in that role?
    The Ox is broken long-term
    Lallana is always broken
    I can't see Bobby being pulled back down into it after the season he had last year
    The ghost doesn't have the ability to play the no.10 role
    Although Keita looks great, his ability seems better suited to the role he's in, and as a battering ram, not a lock picker

    So this only really leaves Shakira for it. Should we let him have it from the off and let him get adjusted to it, or, do we change formation?

    No #10.

    We'll have twin #8s bombing through from midfield. Gini & Keita or Milly & Keita and so on ......

    Mane has been given the number and has played a number of times in that position.  Be interesting to see. In attacking line ups I could see Mane and Shaq on the pitch with them alternating the number 10 role throughout the game.  That has very sexy potential.
