Does Victor Moses fit in at Liverpool? Maybe not


Victor Moses is a very good player , but does he fit into Rodgers' side?

I think he might have problems , and not because of his talent , but the formation.

Liverpool plays a unique system where they transition from a 4-2-3-1 in attack to a 4-3-3 in defense. See

Liverpool defensive shape

Now key to this approach is Jordan Henderson , who isn't a true winger , but an energetic shuttling midfielder who's comfortable with wide play. A decent comparison in terms of his role would be our own Ramires , who played the same role for Brazil and Benfica , shuttling out wide when the side attacked and dropping back into midfield without the ball.

One of the things that is unclear is "Who does Moses replace?". Coutinho is Liverpool's best creative player and Moses can't really play his role. Aspas would be replaced by Suarez after he returns from the ban. Moses isn't a midfielder , so I'm not sure he can play the shuttling role Henderson does.

Moses looks to be more an option off the bench than a sure starter for Liverpool. Moses is a good talent , so hopefully Rodgers will find a way to fit him in.
