Leicester City vs Liverpool : Why Jurgen Klopp must start this player ahead of Henderson



Gini Wijnaldum

The Reds will return to action on Wednesday after an eleven-day break and they will hope to begin from where they stopped.

The Reds are four points above Manchester City in the League standings as the race for the League’s glory gets tougher.

The Cityzens takes on Newcastle on Tuesday – a match many bookmakers believe Guardiola’s men will win with wide goal margin.

Considering Leicester City’s form, it will be very shocking to see the Reds lose a point against the King Power outfits but it is not impossible.

One player Jurgen Klopp must start ahead of Henderson if he must win the battle of King Power is Wijnaldum.

The Dutchman has been a pivotal part of the team at the middle of the pitch, but, he forced out of Klopp’s starting lineup in two previous games.

During his absence, Jurgen Klopp’s men struggled to take control of the game as the midfield was in shambles.

Jordan Henderson offered little to help his team dictate play, he neither joined the attack nor did he offer strong cover for the back four.

In the game against Crystal Palace, the 28-year-old England international was found wanting in his function. His inability to track back to help defenders were maximally utilized by the pacy Eagles strikers who scored three goals.

Wijnaldum will provide a strong cover up for the defensive units, while, his physical presence will make him withstand Wilfred Ndidi’s strength and quality
