Liverpool's Jordan Henderson out of Fulham game while Naby Keita faces late fitness test

Jurgen Klopp today confirmed that Liverpool's captain Jordan Henderson will miss this Sunday's Premier League trip to Fulham. The Reds' midfielder went off after just 11 minutes against Bayern Munich on Wednesday night. Henderson had twisted his ankle but tried to continue. However, even after some bandaging, he could not run off the injury. Speaking today at his pre-game press conference, Klopp said:
"With Hendo, we made further assessment and we know now that it’s serious enough probably to …
Match Report: Liverpool march on in Munich

Match Report: Liverpool march on in Munich

In the days leading up to the match, all of the talk was about Naby Keita’s lack of playing time and then his reported injury. Then the line-up card came out and it was lacking the other midfield addition, sending Liverpool supporters into meltdown. Even the captain was upset that he got picked ahead of Fabinho, apparently. With a Henderson, Milner, Wijnaldum midfield everyone expected us to come out pressing our arse off, but a collision with that colossus, James …

Klopp's PlayStation Midfield

You know, I’d already got this article in my brain long before I saw this tweet from Michael Caley, the brain behind Caley Graphics xG maps. Caley is a brilliant football analyst and the insight that he offers in this tweet backs up other data that I’ve seen in other places, but the simple fact is as follows. Nevertheless, before I get into some of that data, I want to outline the point of this article. Klopp has been tinkering …
Everton 0-0 Liverpool: What went wrong?

Everton 0-0 Liverpool: What went wrong?

A goalless draw at Old Trafford last weekend meant Liverpool's once-comfortable lead at the top of the Premier League table had been whittled down to nothing. They no longer had any margin for error. But it was a case of mistakes aplenty in the Merseyside Derby, and now the title race is out of their hands. The Reds preserved their 17th clean sheet with relative ease, but paid for a lack of creativity and, most of all, composure. In truth, …

Jurgen Klopp hailed Jordan Henderson's "brilliant" performance against FC Bayern

Jordan Henderson put in one of his best performances of the season against Bayern Munich at Anfield and Jurgen Klopp acknowledged his captain's impact on the game. It certainly was a captain's display from Henderson as he broke up many FC Bayern attacks from his place at the base of The Reds' midfield. The former Sunderland midfielder was involved in almost everything positive from a Liverpool point of view. When he wasn't breaking up German counter-attacks, Henderson was spreading the …

Liverpool 0-0 Bayern Munich: Observations as Reds restrict Bayern

Liverpool restricted Bayern Munich to zero shots on targets on Tuesday night, putting in a strong performance in the absence of Virgil van Dijk. The Germans created no big chances, stifled by a make-shift centre-back partnership of Joel Matip and Fabinho while Jurgen Klopp's side were unable to capitalise on their chances, particularly from Sadio Mané's skewed shot inside the first-half. Fabinho shows his worth at centre-back Tasked with filling in at centre-back in the absence of Virgil van Dijk, …

Player Ratings as Bayern hold off Reds at Anfield

What are we all making of that, then? I'm quite satisfied with the result. Liverpool 0-0 Bayern Munich and all the Reds must do now is score and avoid defeat at the Allianz Arena. Given Bayern's home record that does seem a mission. However, there was enough to see tonight that suggests Liverpool can fancy their chances. With Virgil van Dijk back we'll hopefully see an improved Andy Robertson (there's a clue about his rating), whilst Trent Alexander-Arnold will be …

West Ham 1-1 Liverpool: What Went Wrong?

Liverpool battled out another frustrating stalemate, recording a second successive 1-1 draw, this time against West Ham. Considered by some an opportunity scorned, enabling Manchester City a route back into the Premier League title race (although they were never really out of it were they) and others another point in a patch where the team are clearly struggling, there remains mixed emotions across the park about how the table is shaping up in the early stages of February. Like the …
