Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp has revealed that it is a challenge for the squad to adapt to Trent Alexander-Arnold’s new position, Sportivationng.com reports.
The right-back has been deployed in an advanced role in the last few games and he impressed against Leeds United, providing two assists.
“In each position he played, Trent is a super important player for us. This advanced role suits him really well,” Klopp told reporters ahead of Saturday’s home Premier League clash with Nottingham Forest.
“It’s a challenge for everyone else to cover the spaces but with him there we don’t lose many balls. It’s not written in stone, he can play different ways.
“It’s not the first time we played like that… Trent’s a smart player, it’s more about how we set up.”
The Reds will take on Nottingham Forest in the Premier League at Anfield on Saturday.
“It’s a strange, very average season so far, yet (we have had) some of the highest results in the club’s history. Leeds was the best we’ve played all season,” Klopp said.
“I can’t guarantee any kind of result but we have to guarantee a performance level and that is what we have to do now.”
Klopp also confirmed that Roberto Firmino has been ruled out of the encounter.
