Leicester City vs Liverpool: Jurgen Klopp disclosed why he dropped Naby Keita for Jordan Henderson

Liverpool headed to the King Power Stadium, where they play against Leicester City this weekend.

The players to start for the Reds have been unveiled and the surprising thing was that we found Liverpool new signing, Naby Keita on the bench this time around.

For the first time this season, Naby Keita will not be starting for the Reds as Klopp has replaced him with Jordan Henderson.

Klopp disclosed that the Foxes are a very good team and Liverpool need to defend against them to some extent to be able to defeat them.

This may have been one of the reasons why he refused to start Keita as he is much of an attacking midfielder.

Apart from this, Klopp hinted it is an opportunity to let freshness get into the team in terms of starting Jordan Henderson.

This is an opportunity for Naby Keita to rest as he played excellently for the Reds in their last three matches during which they conceded no goal.

However, Jurgen Klopp didn’t make use of Brazil international, Fabinho, who is yet to make a debut for Liverpool since the commencement of the EPL season.
