FM22 Liverpool 4-3-3 Gegenpress Tactic | Team Guide

FM22 Liverpool 4-3-3 Gegenpress Tactic | Team Guide

Football Manager 2022 Liverpool tactic and team guide. Club culture and board requirements, tactics, key players, youth prospects and potential transfers in FM22.


Here is a brief analysis of the Liverpool squad, their club structure, relationship any potential managers will have with the board, expectations and possible tactics any FM22 manager can use.

About the club


Liverpool are a club rich in history, with 19 league titles and 6 European Cups, Liverpool are only 2nd in being the most successful club in England. Recently, they are a very strong side with superb performances in both the league and in Europe. The expectations of replacing Klopp who is a fan favourite will obviously be very high. Are you up for the challenge?

Liverpool finished 3rd in the Premier League in the 2020-2021 season, the board expectations once you take over will be;

FM22 Liverpool Club Vision

⦁ Win the English Premier League
⦁ A semi-final< finish at the UEFA Champions league
⦁ Reach the final of the FA cup

The board will require you to play attacking and entertaining football as a bonus requirement. Managers will also be required to sign players who are under 23 for the first team and develop young players using the club’s youth system.

The club are also blessed with excellent training facilities and a superb youth setup that churns out league ready players every season. Liverpool are also one of the loudest stadiums in England and it should not be too difficult to make Anfield a fortress and a nightmare for away teams to visit.

Squad, Formation and Tactical Style


Liverpool have a pretty set and well-oiled first team and some able backups for most positions. Heading into the transfer market should only be a luxury for most managers.

With Liverpool, you can probably continue using Klopp’s Gengenpress tactic. They have players with a high work rate and the gegenpress will ensure that the ball is won high up the pitch itself. This is also a double-edged sword with fatigue becoming a factor during a congested fixture list and also the chance for injuries to increase. You could alternatively deploy a simply vertical tiki-taka which is also a fast-paced tactic aimed at creating a lot of chances.

A 4-3-3 DM or a 4-3-3 is from my experience the most reliable tactic for this Liverpool squad. You can alter how attacking or defensive your team lines up based on fixtures but the trusted 433 always works for Liverpool.

A rough example of what your line-up would look like in a 4-3-3 formation is as follows;

FM22 Liverpool 4-3-3 Gegenpress Tactic



Alison Becker as a sweeper-keeper

Trent Alexander Arnold & Andy Robertson as complete wing-backs/ wing-backs with increased crossing instructions.

Virgil Van Dijk as a ball-playing defender and Joel Matip/Ibrahima Konate as the other ball-playing defender.

Fabinho to play as a defensive midfielder in a deep-lying midfielder (Defend) role or a regista role.

Thiago as a Mezzala & Jordan Henderson as a box to box midfielder role.

Sadio Mane & Mohammad Salah on the left and right wings respectively operating as inside forwards.

Roberto Firmino as a lone forward in a deep-lying forward role or a defensive forward.

You can alternatively rotate Jota with Firmino or play Harvey Elliot instead of Thiago as an attacking midfielder playing a 4-2-3-1 formation.

Key Players


The entire first team is riddled with key players but the pick of the lot are;

Virgil Van Dijk


Virgil Van Dijk FM22

Van Dijk is back to his best after his long injury break and is amongst the elite defenders in the game. His performances will shape the scoreline in defence.

Sadio Mane


Sadio Mane FM22

Mane is an extremely speedy winger who is lethal in front of a goal. He is also extremely versatile and is a perfect fit for the fast Liverpool side.

Mohammad Salah


Mohammad Salah FM22

Mo Salah is one of the best players in the world in his position. Just as Mane, he is extremely fast, tricky and is lethal in front of a goal when presented with chances. He has 81 league goals for Liverpool in just 116 appearances which is an even better record than what Ronaldo had at Man Utd.

Trent Alexander Arnold


Trent Alexander Arnold FM22

Alexander Arnold is amongst the best-attacking wingbacks in the game. His prowess from set-piece situations and while crossing a football is second to none and TAA will rake up assists for the club.

Youth Prospects


There are a lot of exciting young prospects in the ranks or on loan who have the potential to be some of the best players in the league. A few examples are;

Harvey Elliott


Harvey Elliott FM22

One of the most talented youngsters from the Liverpool academy, Elliott is also very versatile and can slot in multiple positions playing various roles. Elliot has seen a lot of game time this season in real life and can be developed into a top player for the club.

Layton Stewart


Layton Stewart FM22

Stewart is a talented young striker from the Liverpool academy and if nurtured well can be an excellent goalscorer for club and country.

Weaknesses


Liverpool as such do not have many weaknesses and will be a comparatively smoother ride for most managers unless they have horrible luck with injuries. However, some of their weaknesses are;

• The best tactic that suit Liverpool is the Gegenpress, but it is a double-edged sword with injures being a common occurrence. You will also have to rotate the squad more than normal because of fatigue.

• There is a massive drop in quality after the first team, especially in the attacking winger's department with no proper backups for Salah or Mane.

• The board and fan expectations are pretty high and anything other than championships could be seen as a failure.

Potential Transfers (in)


With Liverpool having problems with their bench you definitely need to bolster the quality of the squad to compete especially with the giants of Europe.

⦁ Phillipe Coutinho
⦁ Raphinha

Potential Transfers (Out)


These players may be surplus to requirements at the club or may not be of the expected quality.

⦁ Naby Keita
⦁ Takumi Minamino

Summary


Liverpool are one of the strongest teams in the English Premier League & a favourite for many FM managers. Can you take over the club and do one better than what Klopp has achieved with the club?
