Detailed Analysis on Klopp's formation against Chelsea

Formation
Liverpool lined up in the 4-3-3 that's become so familiar under Jurgen Klopp, with Elliott occupying the right sided role in midfield.

While he was the big surprise pick for a game of this magnitude, Firmino being chosen to start over Jota was also a talking point.

Andy Robertson returned to be paired up with Sadio Mane on the left as the Reds were hoping to take all 3 points from the game.


Takeaways
Right side overload: Almost the entirety of Liverpool's attacks came down the right flank, between Elliott, Trent and Salah.

While this is an exciting development for the youngster in particular, it also showed a lack of initiative down the left.

Sadio Mane looks like he's lost a step and the returning Andy Robertson wasn't able to provide the delivery necessary to break a determined Chelsea defence.

Failure to break low block: Once again, Liverpool were frustrated in the second half by a team settling in and building a wall.

Endless crosses were out into the box but there were just not enough bodies to make something happen despite all the possession.

The midfielders struggled to find space through the middle and all the long shots attempted were well saved by Edouard Mendy.

Liverpool need to find a solution to this quickly or teams will employ this tactic to frustrate them all season long
