Liverpool have lost a superstar this month as Coutinho completed his move to Barcelona. The question is, how will the Reds cope without the little magician?
The Merseysiders have already shown that they can do great without Coutinho in the team so losing him is not such a big blow.
Liverpool started that season without Philippe and in the first three league games, they earned 7 points. More recently, the Reds have won their last two games (vs Burnley and Everton) in the absence of the Brazilian.
The good thing for Liverpool is that Lallana returned before the departure of Coutinho and the England international has impressed lately. Now that the Brazilian is gone, the former Southampton captain should be a regular starter in the center of the park because he is the most creative midfielder in the squad.
Adam should partner the likes of Can and Wijnaldum in the midfield. Mane, Salah and Firmino are irreplaceable in the attack.
Andrew Robertson has proved to be brilliant in the recent games and he should always start. Trent Alexander-Arnold has been far more productive as compared to Gomez recently and he should be preferred. In our opinion, here is Liverpool’s strongest XI after Coutinho’s exit.
