    Klopp to play Henderson or Robertson in centre of Liverpool’s defence?

    Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp tips that he is thinking about whether to play Jordan Henderson or Andrew Robertson in main defence over the coming weeks.

    Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp has not dismissed the possibility of Jordan Henderson or Andrew Robertson lining up in the centre of defence.

    After injuries to Virgil van Dijk, Joel Matip and Fabinho, England international Joe Gomez remains as the only senior centre-back readily available for choice.

    Although Rhys Williams might get approval against West Ham United on Saturday night, Klopp has hinted that Henderson or Robertson might change from their typical positions, making a contrast to former player Javier Mascherano

    Speaking at an interview on Friday, Klopp stated: “We have still, obviously, other options like Hendo or Gini ( Georginio Wijnaldum) or James (Milner) – or Robbo can play centre-half as well

    “They are all not smaller than Mascherano, for example, and he played pretty well in that position. So yes we have obviously still one or two options and one of them, we will choose. Which one, you have to switch on the television tomorrow night.”

    Nathaniel Phillips, who is disqualified for the Champions League, is another option for Klopp against the Hammers.
